The history of Henriques & Henriques

Henriques & Henriques gebouw

The history of Henriques & Henriques, 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.

Henriques & Henriques Madeira

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.

The cooperation

Henriques & Henriques, a company whose history goes back to 1850 and that, unlike what usually happens in Madeira, owns a considerable amount of its own vineyards. In this company, now mainly belonging to Porto Cruz, everything exudes organization, cleanliness, and care. What impressed me the most, besides the wines, of course, was their lovely cooperage. Yes, in Madeira, wine producers have their own cooperages given their relevance in the winemaking process and aging of liqueur wines.
