"drink" Madeira wine and it's history



   The origins of the Madeira Wine Company started in 1913 when two companies, Welsh & Cunha and Henriques & Camara, joined forces to form the Madeira Wine Association Lda. Through the lean years that followed more companies joined to ensure their survival by reducing costs and pooling production whilst maintaining commercial independence.
Blandy’s and Leacock’s amalgamated their interests and joined the association in 1925.
Other companies all joined the association in the years that followed. The spirit of the union, ably organised by Tom Mullins, was to maintain the individuality of the different companies together with their respective styles of wines while at the same time reducing overheads. This photo is from The Old Blandy Wine Lodges that can be visited. ~~~~~~ As origens da Madeira Wine Company começam em 1913, quando duas empresas, Welsh & Cunha e Henriques & Camara, uniram forças para formar a Madeira Wine Association Lda.
