Don´t miss the Madeira Wine Festival: From the 28th of August to the 11th of September 2016
The Madeira Wine Festival is one of the island´s main tourist attractions that pays tribute to this precious nectar and its undeniable socioeconomic significance.
Taking place during the grape harvest in late August, early September, the Madeira Wine Harvest Festival is always the perfect excuse to visit Madeira.
In Funchal, the allegorical light, sound and music shows are the high points of the celebrations that take place at other points on the island.
For a start, in the Estreito de Câmara de Lobos parish, 12 km from Funchal, the live wine harvests are an excellent opportunity to take part in one of the oldest local traditions, whether picking grapes or following the grape harvester groups.
