Madeira island news and views.
Madeira Wine Festival
From September 1st to 8th
Part of the annual tourist entertainment calendar, the Madeira Wine Festival is celebrated every year by the time of the grape harvest in tribute to century-old precepts of the vine arts that hark back to the time when the island was first inhabited.
This festivity is intensely experienced in the parish of Estreito de Câmara de Lobos, a place where locals and visitors take part actively in this ethnographic ritual full of lively entertainment (grape harvesting parties, floats with grape pickers, the re-enactments of regional customs and ways, etc.).
On the other hand, various allegorical events are held in downtown Funchal in a party atmosphere where music and regional gastronomy are also part of the show.
Come and discover a little bit of this archipelago’s history and treat yourself to this nectar of the gods!
