Madeira

H.M. Borges, Funchal

Our first shipment is the result of a long courtship, which began in 1987 when I met Georges Borges Goncalves on my very first trip to Madeira. We've been dancing around each other  for the last 4 years, and have finally taken the plunge. It's exciting!

There's no doubt for me that Madeira (both the wine and the place)  is the most exciting, stimulating, inspirational (and sometimes frustrating) experience I have ever experienced in my wine career. If you believe in wines which reflect their origin, then these are for you!

Borges is a small family operation. One of the smallest remaining companies, but with a long history on the island; it was founded in 1877. As some shippers are moving to plantings of their own vineyards, Borges remains a purchaser of grapes, which they source throughout the island and vinify and mature in their own cellars in the centre of Funchal. Here too they are resisting modern trends to move out of town.

There's quite a wide range of wines available, much of them in very small quantities, so we can imagine stock available might change quite frequently.
