Madeira, the Portuguese fortified wine, is now trending!

27th Feb. 2015  /  THE MARKET  ·  Madeira, Broadbent

Watch out port, because according to The Wall Street Journal, Madeira is now claiming the throne as the ‘hip’ fortified wine of choice in the US!


Madeira is a fortified wine produced on the Portuguese island of Madeira (its namesake), off the coast of Africa. Rich in history and flavor, a Madeira revival is taking over the US, with wine lovers across the country praising this complex and versatile fortified wine.


In the recent Wall Street Journal article “Madeira: The Historic Portuguese Wine That’s Hip Again,” Lettie Teague quotes industry professionals as well as Madeira producers on the history, story and revival of Madeira, including our very own Broadbent owner Bartholomew Broadbent himself!


Mr. Broadbent recounts the very prestigious list of Madeira lovers throughout America’s history, including the likes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Betty Ross! He explains that “while Port is usually sweet and poured at the end of a meal, Madeira can be dry or sweet and can possess a brisk acidity that makes it more refreshing and flexible with food.”
