Lovely tasting room is situated in the centre of Funchalm in an emblematic, listed building built in 1619. We tasted half-dry, semi-sweet, 5 year old sweet wines, and some traditional Christmas cookies.

Really loved this place. Very atmospheric and steeped in history. There are lots of wines to choose from and you can taste any of them before you buy. Several nice gift boxed options for presents to take home.
