Fascinating history of madeira wine and the ability to see the casks and learn about the making of the wine over the last two centuries. Tour was a little short on specifics and time allowed could be more.

Blandy's has a long history in Madeira (the place AND the drink) and this was well worth the entry money. It is not cheap (we did the mid-range tour) but it was very interesting and we got two might slurps of Madeira to taste at...More
