(The tattoo once read 'Winona Forever'!)
I know forever seems like a long time but if you are a bottle of Madeira, a lifetime is a VERY long time. The oldest wine we have in the store is from the 1850 harvest and we have an incredible selection of Vintage Madeira in the store at all times.
You can’t call yourself a wine lover if you have never tried Madeira. I remember the first time that I tasted a vertical selection of Madeira at the Great Wine Seminar put on by the biggest collector of Madeira on Earth Dr. Robert Maliner. I was stunned at the wines’ complexity and the layers of flavors and aromas that continued to rise from the glass for hours.
After this tasting I began a search looking for all the old Madeira that I could find, and Wine Watch now has one of the largest collections of Madeira that you can find in the United States of America. We host an annual event with Dr. Maliner every year now as we are trying to help our good friend drink through his stash of some of the oldest wines on the planet. This year we have three Madeira wines pre-1900, the oldest going all the way back to 1835 vintage!
The fee for this tasting which includes dinner is $995.00 + tax and our good friend Dr. Robert Maliner will be here to tell the story of these ancient bottles. For reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail email@example.com.
