A Madeiran institution since its establishment in 1850, Henriques & Henriques offers the best of this picturesque Portuguese island. With over 160 years of experience producing the finest Madeiras, H&H embraces recent technical innovation to create and nurture wines of exceptional quality. Being the largest owners of vineyards on Madeira, under the inspiring leadership of "Master Blender" Humberto Jardim, H&H is able to control every aspect of the production process.
Britain has been a traditional Madeira market since the marriage of Princess Catherine of Portugal and King Charles II of England in 1661, and today the six grape varieties used in Madeira produce versatile, characterful wines which appeal to a diverse audience. A brave new generation of consumers are experimenting with matching drier styles of Madeira such as Sercial and Verdelho with savoury, umami rich cuisine and discovering wonderful results.
The Canteiro process is employed for all 10 and 15 year old Madeiras from H&H where the wine is heated naturally in barrels over some months to enhance concentration and consistency of the wine. Malmsey produces a rich sweet style whilst still exhibiting delicious mouthwatering acidity.
