We walked from Cabo Girao ( bus 8 by Rodoeste bus in funchal) to Camara do Lobos and stop at H&H wine lodge. It was a nice experience looking at their cellar with many old barrals ! They offer tasting 3 years old wine for free. And you can buy other tasting by flight or glass. The lady was friendly and even gave us a bit 5 years before we decided to buy one. A very nice stopover. Check their opening hours as they close for a couple of hours for lunch break.

Attractive space, smells lovely, well laid out with clear information. Somewhat spoilt by what I can only describe as snotty staff, one of whom shrieked at us when one of our party put too much wine in their shot glass. Woman behind the shop counter was more friendly but instantly changed when I mistakenly gave her €1 short, reacting as though I was an imbecile or a thief. They spent a disproportionate amount of time fawning over a richer-looking couple. We made a purchase but spent less than we had originally planned because of the attitude of the staff; a shame, since there was another staff member floating around who seemed much friendlier.

Lesley and I have had the pleasure of visiting Henriques & Henriques on 4 occasions over the last 3 years.

When you visit the 1st floor shop area you are given the option to try a feee tasting of one of their younger wines, or pay, by the glass, for tastings of their indicative age and vintage wines.

We've found the payment system works very well, the price per glass reflecting the cost of the full bottle, and that the poured measure is enough for us both to share and compare. As well as giving you the opportunity to taste without the nagging feeling of an obligation to buy a bottle, it's also a great way to check out the occasional vintage wine without breaking the bank. The wines themselves are excellent, a current favourite being the Verdelho 20 year old, but try the different styles & ages and you're sure to find something you'll think is wonderful.

Be aware, however, that the service in the shop can struggle a bit. Only one member of staff is a fluent English speaker, and all of the shop staff are taking time out from their office work to help you. Don't worry though, just enjoy the taste!

2.5 stars, rounded up though I am torn about that.

My husband and I frequently taste and buy wine on trips, and we'd heard H&H makes the best Madeira. We lost track of time doing other things and got there at about 4:50 (they closed at 5:30).

The woman running the tasting room was quite gregarious with couples in their 50s and 60s who were tasting; we could hear her giving info in English and other languages to those couples. For several minutes, we felt invisible. We looked around the store with no acknowledgement and finally walked right up to the tasting area (which was nearly full). A couple of minutes later, she spoke to indicate we should go out to the barrel room with her staff member for a tasting. We went out to meet the employee at the barrels. Next to the barrel was a sign indicating the prices of tastes. She gestured at a sign showing the types and and asked which of the four levels (dry to sweet) we wanted to try. Thinking we were starting our paid tasting, we looked at each other and said, "How about one of each?"

"No!" she said. "One. Each." She looked at us like we were trying to take something we weren't entitled to. Apparently that one tasting was free. We had had no idea. We each had our taste, and she took the glasses from us. Then she turned on her heel and walked back through the employee door without another word.

We stood there for a minute, but she did not return. We uncertainly walked back to the tasting desk, but the woman wasn't there, either. We stood around for about 10 minutes, until most of the older couples were gone. Then the other woman, running the tasting room, said, "Yes? What do you want?" We told her we wanted to actually taste. I was feeling quite irritated by that point.

Because she was the only one helping anyone taste at that point, she stopped for long stretches to ring up various people who wanted to buy something. We got no info on any of the Madeira we were tasting. 5:30 rolled around and she began packing up to close. We bought a few inexpensive to moderately priced bottles to share with folks at home, but we likely would have spent much more if we had received guidance and notes during the tasting.

TL;DR: Understaffed, with confusing arrangement and variable interest in patrons. May have assumed we were less valuable customers because we are in our 30s.

You can taste the cooking madeira wines for free, but for the real experience the tasting room in the shop offers a low cost tasting of the older and better wines. The 15 year old, 20 year old and single vintage wines are just a class above the basic wines offered in the cask room, and it's impossible to taste and then not to buy some to take away.

The manager, Graca, is delightful and cheerfully friendly, and she makes you feel welcome every time you visit.

We stopped off here wanting to know a little more about Madeira wine and certainly ticked that box!! The lady was very friendly and helpful talking us through the 6 x 3year old wines you can taste for free then browse the shop to see what you fancy. Well worth a visit

There is not much of a tour (it is not the winery itself), but the tasting counter is quite nice. You can try the 3 year old wines for free and then there is a charge for trying the rarer vintages. Kind staff were very helpful explaining the vintages/options. No pressure to purchase, but a great way to try different varietals and ages. Staff were limited, but service was very nice. Definitely worth a stop and a purchase!

Madeira's wine factory, which is definitely worth a visit, tastes 3a wines completely free and if you want to try something more exclusive like 10, 15, 20 or even old wines from 1800 then you can do it at a very reasonable price. at the same time there is a shop where everything can be bought and prices are really good

On our break to Madeira we took the bus to Camara de Lobos. Having wandered around the harbour we headed up through the town and came upon Henrique and Henrique. We hadn’t gone to Blandy’s as it always appeared packed with tourists.
Henrique and Henrique was empty when we arrived. There are interesting displays, lots of barrels and a most delicious smell. You can try 3 year old wine for free (4 types) and there’s a moderate charge for older vintages.
The gift shop has a good selection of Madeira and local produce. I thought the prices competitive. We are glad we found Henrique and Henrique by chance, it appears a lot less commercialised than its competitors.

The smell when you walk in here is so lovely but to be honest there's not much to see or do. The staff are lovely and quite knowledgeable and let you taste the 3 yr old wines. The shop is small but has a variety. This is not really something you'd set out to explore but if you are passing it's worth a look and a taste.
