Blandy's Wine Lodge Tour

A Tour of Blandy's Wine Lodge

If you should find yourself in downtown Funchal with an hour or so to spare, check out the Blandy's Wine Lodge Tour; we visited as guest of Chris Blandy after meeting him for lunch.

The sprawling Blandy's empire is run by 6th and 7th generations of the family; the tour gives a history of the people as well as the Madeira process and the wines themselves.

The tour takes place in the wine lodge itself - so it is both a museum and a workplace.
