Rare Wine Co. Madeira Verdelho "Savannah", NV, 750ml
In the 18th and early 19th centuries, Madeira was the United States’ most coveted wine.
Every public event—from the signing of the Declaration of Independence to George Washington’s Inauguration—was toasted with a glass of Madeira. For more than 150 years, no other wine rivaled it in the eyes of connoisseurs.
But after the Civil War, Madeira drifted into obscurity, the victim of a series of natural, political and economic calamities. It was not until the dawn of the 21st century that America once again embraced this enigmatic wine, helped in no small part by The Rare Wine Co.’s creation of its Historic Series.
“A mouth-filling personality, with a luscious texture and a salt-sea aroma.” Elin McCoy, Bloomberg
