The really good Madeira is made from a red grape called Tinta Negra, and I think I'll be planting a few hundred of these vines when I get back home. Was interesting to learn how they age the wine in both barrels and also artificially by heating the wine in tanks. Heating it for 3 months at a warm temperature ...

    ... br> restaurant to try out a Madeiran specialty called Gaiado, a small tunalike fish
    that’s dried and then served in strips with onion, tomato, and vinaigrette. The
    flavor is intensely fishy, which I quite like, but not super salty like

    for generous tastes of his 10-year aged Madeira wine. Madeira is fortified and generally
