The Madeira Wine, Embroidery and Handicraft Institute, IP-RAM, (IVBAM) in partnership with the Regional Directorate for Public Administration of Porto Santo (DRAPS) will make the official launch of Caracol Wine – special edition commemorating the 600th years – tomorrow, September 10th at 6 pm at DRAPS headquarters.
Caracol Wine is a PDO “Madeirense” white wine from the Caracol variety, traditionally planted on Porto Santo Island, among its typical crochet walls.
According to IVBAM, this special edition aims to reveal the importance and potentiality of this grape variety and promote the knowledge, history, tradition and cultural heritage of Porto Santo, where vineyard culture is also linked to its settlement and has its own characteristics. .
This wine, which reflects the potentialities of the Golden Island, presents delicate aromas where the minerality is evident in harmony with the notes of citrus and tropical character. It was vinified in the cellar of São Vicente, under the oenology of its resident oenologist, João Pedro Machado.
This launching action is co-financed by 85% from EU funds provided by the Madeira 14-20 Program, the remainder being supported by the regional budget.
