We've always found it slightly odd that this Madeira producer is named Blandy's... Nominative determinism suggests that if your name is Baker you're statistically more likely to make bread for a living, well, this wine is like the opposite of this principle. Blandy's Colheita Malmsey 1999 is possibly the most powerfully flavourful wine ever to sail into a British port. This vintage fortified wine is rich and full-bodied and expresses concentrated flavours of dried fruit, caramel, toffee and walnut, perfectly balanced by a fresh and zesty acidity. Of course, Blandy's refers to the name of this family owned business, currently under the management of Chris Blandy and has nothing to do with the style of wine. Here's to 7 generations of Blandy's make the least bland wine on the planet!


The Blandy’s are unique in being the only family of all the original founders of the Madeira wine trade to still own and manage theirown original wine company, maintaining a tradition that goes back to 1811. Blandy's Madeira is a family owned business with over 200 years of experience in producing the finest quality Madeira wines and prevails totally dedicated to the preservation of the Madeira wine production traditions whilst maintaining the highest quality standards. In 1925, Blandy's decided to join the Madeira Wine Association; a group of wine companies which formed together. In 1989 in order to further expand the global market, the Blandy's approached another Anglo-Portuguese family, the Symingtons of Oporto (Port producers since the 19th century) and offered them a partnership in the newly named Madeira Wine Company (MWC). This partnership continues and today Michael and Chris Blandy, members of the 6th and 7th generations, continue to work in the company, which is today run by Chris and is the world's leading producer of premium quality Madeira wine. Today, the company continues to lead the way in the re-establishment of Madeira as one of the world's great wines.
