Full description

Afterwards, go to Encumeada viewpoint with its great views over north and south of the island, a high point that connects Ribeira Brava, São Vicente, and Paúl da Serra. After passing Chão dos Louros Forest Park, whose name comes from the abundance of laurels trees, take a nice off-road drive with fantastic views over Porto Moniz, Ribeira da Janela, Paul da Serra, and São Vicente.

Then, have a fabulous experience with a very important wine producer in Madeira, enjoying a guided tour through the vineyards, followed with a wine tasting and traditional tapa. Enjoy a professional explanation about traditions, wine culture and wine production given by an oenologist.

I liked the tour a lot, and was able to experience Madeira in a unique way. We started at the overlook (way cool but tourist packed), then drove through the back roads, went to a winery to try still wines, and finished with a local poncha joint. Some ideas for improvement: the off-roading aspect could be more clear. I thought we would be driving through wineries with the 4x4; instead we were driving through waterfalls and backroads. The guide could provide more history of Madeira rather than speaking just to the current state of the island. Finally, it was cool to try the still wines, but might be nice to try some Madeira wine too (especially since the winery we went to is associated with the Blandy’s).

A suberb day out. Lovely scenery delicious wine and authentic local poncha to finish. Our guide Toni was great and generated a fun and lively atmosphere that encouraged us all to get into the spirit of things. Our guide was relaxed, jovial and you could tell he absolutely loved his job. The tour was a mix of excellent wine, rugged 4X4 (all totally safe in Toni's more than capable hands) and jaw dropping scenery. Everyone seemed to finish on a high. Would thoroughly recommend.
