Madeira

Madeira

The entire island chain is blanketed by rich volcanic soils. Production began back in the Age of Exploration in the 15th when Madeira was a main port for ships heading to the New World. In the 1720’s Madeiran ships began to regularly set sail for Charleston and other major Eastern US ports, as the importation of wine was of great importance to the colonists as no wine quality grapes were grown. It was the drink of choice for the Elite and wealthy Southern plantation owners. This fortified wine is noted for its unique winemaking process which involves heating the wine up to temperatures as high as 140 °F for an extended period of time and deliberately exposing the wine to some levels of oxidation. Due to this unique process, Madeira is a very robust wine that can be quite long lived even after being opened.

Cider

The traditional Southern bubbles. Only 100 years ago, more cider was consumed in this country than beer . Prohibition devastated the industry and many orchards were cut down and replaced. We are on a mission to reintroduce quality cider from Southern artisan producers who are dedicated to the craft of cider production. We are seeking out those that use Heirloom bitter cider apples and produce pre prohibition style dry ciders
