Enjoyable tour with some good artefacts and a good guide More about the Brandy family and how clever they are rather than the wine Still, got to know more about Madeira wine and tasted some, though the samples were measly and had no aging

The budget tour wasnt available so we upped the cash. Interesting tour but too rushed, particularly the end museum part. I did however enjoy extra samples as some of my party didnt enjoy the wine !

The visit was interesting but the group was so big it had to be devided in two. The visit was not very personal. We learned more about the Blandy - family than winemaking.
