Established in Madeira Island in 1870, Justino's Madeira Wines currently holds one of the largest stocks, including high quality wines aged in oak barrels, which allows the company to meet the desire of consumers, increasingly demanding and selective. Founded in 1850, the Henriques & Henriques company is the largest independent winemaker of Madeira wine. It is also the only company to have its own vineyards. The Henriques family was descended from D. Afonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal, and owns vineyards on the island of Madeira, in Câmara de Lobos, from the XV century. In 1968, the business owner, John Henriques, died and, having no direct heirs, left its actions to three friends. Two of these friends, Peter Cossart and Carlos Nunes Pereira delivered the company to the future generations. Currently, the CEO of the company is Dr. Humberto Garden and Mr. Luis Pereira is the winemaker. Wine tasting registration is required by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and has a cost of 5€.
