Madeira Wine Museums

Portuguese Wine
A new Wine and Vineyard Museum has opened in Santana, Madeira.

The interactive museum is housed in a restored former wine cellar. The museum exhibits traditional tools used in wine production such as wine presses, casks and barrels.

There is also information on vineyards and the wine cycle as well as a variety of local wines on sale.

In Funchal there is an older wine museum - the Madeira Wine Institute Museum - located in a property that used to belong to a 19th-century British consul. The museum presents the history and techniques of wine production on the island.
