Old Liquors, Belem's, Henriques

The history of Belem's, founded by João Gonçalves Henriques goes back to 1850. After his death in 1912, his sons created a partnership, Francisco Eduardo Henriques and João Joaquim Henriques, hence Henriques & Henriques. From then on, Henriques & Henriques played an essential role in viticulture and winemaking on the Island, and in 1913, they accommodated the family interests in their newly established firm, and by 1925, the firm concentrated on shipping its wines instead of supplying them to other shippers.

Câmara de Lobos

--

Belém’s Madeira pays homage to the ancestral home of the Henriques family in Belém, Câmara de Lobos, the historic fishing village west of Funchal whose history is entwined to the account of Madeira — the island and the wine. With the death, in 1968, of the last of the Henriques, João Joaquim Henriques, known as “João de Belém”, (who had no heirs) the company went to his three friends and partners: Alberto Nascimento Jardim, Peter Cossart (who made 53 vintages with the company) and Carlos Nunes Pereira. Today, Belém’s Madeira continues to be owned and produced by Henriques & Henriques, one of the most esteemed and storied producers on the island.
