This old Madeira formed part of the private reserve of Joao Romao Teixeira (1864 - 1933), a prominent wine producer at Lugar de Baixo in south west Madeira. In the 1950s the wine was transferred to g lass demijohns from the oak casks in which it had been matured and was bottled, unrefreshed, in 1987.

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.
