Old bottlers and old bottles

Old bottlers and old bottles

A large number of Madeira wine producers have disappeared over the years, some have amalgamated with others many brands have gone. here we look at images of Old bottlers and old bottles. Some of the bottlers still exist today, but with very different labels.

This page shows some of the old labels I have come across on my travels in Madeira and in my research on line.

I find some of the art work and labeling quite lovely and they hark back to the day when Madeira wine was much better appreciated around the world.

Below we see Madeira from  A. Izidro Gonsalves, a 1926 wine from the Adega Co-oP and a CVM wine. The shelves show wines from Veiga Franca and on the  some old Solera wines from Antonio Eduardo Henriques. All long gone.

We see aged bottles of Leacock’s and their famous St John’s wines, Borges, Cossart and Gordon, Miles Madeira, all of which still exist, though with more modern labels.

We see D’Oliveira’s wines produced with grapes from Camera de Lobos and wines bottled by Barbeito from 1919.

Companhia Vinicola da Madeira (CVM) was established in 1870 by Antonio Izidro (Isidoro) Gonçalves,
