Blandy's in Funchal is a Madeira institution and often a must-see sight for tourists, especially Brits, on their holidays on the Portuguese island.

The Blandys are the last remaining family of all the original businesses of the Madeira wine trade to still own and manage their own wine company to this day.

The Blandy business began in 1811 and the family have a reputation as modernizers who have been able to keep pace with the ups and downs of the Madeira wine business over the last two centuries and thus remain in control of their original enterprise - making fine Madeira wines.
