One of the main exports of Madeira is madeira – cake and wine – and this lodge is a convenient place to sample some. Tasting something like a port or a sherry, madeira isn't a wine everyone will have tried at home, but if there's anywhere to have your first tipple this is the town. Obviously the tour, with its tastings at the end is geared up to encouraging you to buy at the end, but with several complementary tastings included in the reasonably priced tour it's not a bad way to spend an afternoon, especially if it's an overcast one.

The larger tour groups come here, and it's by no means the most authentic tasting experience around, but it is just off the main square, and by all reports the tour is considered interesting and informative – up to you whether you think that's better than going to a bar and hoping for the best.
