Wineries in Madeira

Jump to last reply

We live part-time in France, and will be taking our European vacation this year in Portugal, flying from Toulouse to Lisbon (4 days), then Lisbon to Funchal/Madeira (4 days), then back to Lisbon for another few days, then back to Toulouse.
We found dirt cheap flights on EasyJet, which helped us decide to take this excursion, but we'll be traveling with just the one carry-on bag each that EasyJet permits before they start charging a bazillion Euros for checked or extra bags.
Unfortunately, we always like to visit local wineries when we travel around Europe -- but this time we won't be able to buy the wine that we taste because we would be carrying back bottles as carry-on, which would likely make our bags overweight, and won't even be permitted anyway as carry-on.
Does anybody know if Portuguese wineries can/will ship wine to individuals in France?
Can anyone suggest a particular small, high-quality producer of Madeira wine that we might be able to visit?
