Next year Barbeito will celebrate its 75th anniversary. We originally wanted to celebrate this at Maître Philippe & Filles with some special tasting events, but unfortunately this has to be postponed due to current events.

Ricardo Diogo Freitas and his team at Barbeito continue to amaze the market and Madeira wine lovers with rare and original new products. This is also the case with this Barbeito Verdelho 50 Years Old "Aniversário", a blend of 12 wines, some of which are already over 100 years old and of which only 525 bottles were produced. A very special wine for Ricardo. Firstly because the wine celebrates Barbeito's 75 years, secondly because Verdelho is his favorite variety.

The nose is dominated by caramel, iodine and toasty aromas, complemented by notes of ginger, jam and hints of refreshing citrus. Compact and intense, young and irreverent, fresh and spirited. A Madeira for everyone with a wild heart beating in their chest!

In its current young condition it is already a treat that will intensify over time. A great Madeira with enormous storage potential!

A great wine that also includes a Verdelho 1885 from Ricardo's grandfather's collection.

Goes well with consommé, smoked salmon, air-dried ham, pasta with mussels and orange and strong cheese. Also highly recommended as a digestif or aperitif.

The ideal drinking temperature is 14 - 16 °C.

Store dry and cool.

Best served at 14ºC or lower room temperature 16ºC. This wine will keep in good condition for several months after opening.

Ingredients & Allergens

Contains sulphites


The Barbeito company was founded in 1946 by Mario Barbeito on the island of Madeira. On the one hand, he relied on vintage wines (as a financial cushion), but also produced simple Madeira wines. Ricardo Freitas Diogo has been running the business in the third generation since the mid-1990s. Today, the Barbeito company sets itself apart from the competition, among other things, by almost completely dispensing with the addition of caramel as a factor affecting color and taste.
Last week I drank a glass of very good Madeira from a bottle my grandfather opened 25 years ago.

This preserves the originality of Madeira, this very special specialty that can hardly be compared to the dessert wines that seem to be related, such as port and sherry from the continent. Madeira is particularly suitable as an aperitif. Similar to port wine, the fermentation of Madeira wine is interrupted by adding high-proof brandy. As a result, not all the sugar ferments and the wine retains a corresponding sweetness. Another hallmark is the succinct acidity that generally results from the base wines (volcanic soils with a low pH) and specifically from Barbeito due to the purchase of the grapes just before the usual ripeness. The alcohol content is between 17 and 22 percent. The special feature of Madeira wine is five to eight months of storage at elevated temperatures of up to 75 degrees Celsius. This used to happen in wooden barrels in the heat under a tin roof, but today it is mostly done artificially in a heatable tank. As a result, Madeira wine has an extremely long shelf life and even an opened bottle can stand for months without the wine going bad. Madeira wine is essentially made from five white vines: Sercial, Verdelho, Bual, Terrantez and Malvasia. Tinta Negra Mole joins them in the red area.
On the island there is a clear separation of cultivation and processing: the producers receive the grapes from the hundreds of small farmers on the island, whose plots are rarely larger than a typical home garden. In any case, this island offers few suitable areas for cultivation, which are then planted either with grapes, bananas or sugar cane.
The typical grape varieties of the island are the white Sercial, Verdelho, Boal, Terrantez and Malmsey (Malvasia), as well as the red Tinta Negra Mole.
