D’Oliveiras Madeira Wine Tasting

I thought it was about time we hosted a Madeira tasting at Loki. D’Oliveiras are thought of as one of the top producers in the historic island, and what’s more they are still family owned. Madeira is one of the most underrated wines in the world, and perfect for Christmas. These fortified wines offer a completely different experience from the dry crisp refreshing styles all the way through to the mega sweet. They are also the perfect wine for drinking over a number of weeks even years, these wines will last forever and keep their amazing complexity. This tasting will aim to show the wonderful range and complexity in the wines. In this tasting we will be trying Madeira from entry level through to wines from 1958 and 1907 vintages.
