Madeira

The island of Madeira has been producing and exporting its namesake wine virtually since the Portuguese discovered it in 1419. Since then, Madeira’s location in the middle of important trade routes meant the success of its wines mirrored the worldwide geopolitical situation. The fortified wine’s fortunes have soared during times of peace, prosperity, and free trade and plummeted during conflict and international upheaval.

J.S. Madeira’s These bottles were discovered by OP Brothers (Oleg and Pedro) in São Vicente. They had original wax seals and corks but were in very poor condition; The bottles were completely covered with dirt, sand, and sediment of wine. The contents of some bottles had no wine characteristics due to the loss of alcohol, they were refused. All bottles were carefully cleaned and opened. The Madeira was placed in demijohn while the original bottles were cleaned and newly stencilled where necessary. Then the wine was rebottled, recorked and rewaxed. From these bottles we were able to taste a number of the wines, our notes are added to the specifc lots. Who J.S. was that made these wines remains uncertain. The stencilling is quite unique in its design and paint. This ink was also used by João Carlos d`Aguiar from Estreito de Câmara de Lobos. They appear to be extremely rare and possibly are from Dr. João Vicente da Silva who was from Estreito de Câmara de Lobos, born around 1803. For about 40 years he was in the service of the City Hall. By his death in 1895 his nephew inherited a collection of old Madeira wines stored in six cellars in the area of Ribeiro Real. We were unable to receive comfrmation that the J.S. Madeiras in fact were from João Vicente da Silva. Our research continues. Meanwhile we are pleased to offer these historic and very unique bottles.
