Pereira D'Oliveiras

Founded in 1850, Pereira D'Oliveiras is the most traditional of houses, and their wines are the most concentrated and earthy of Madeiras, yet brilliantly fresh and persistent. Nowadays, it is run by executive director Luis D'Oliveira, one of 3 brothers in the partnership and direct descendant of founder, João Pereira D'Oliveira. Fellow 5th generation family member Anibal D'Oliveira (along with his son, Felipe) is the winemaker.


PdO have recently acquired Barros i Souza, whose brands will be kept in the market. They had previously taken over 5 exporter-producers whose businesses were failing, and whose stocks have augmented Pereira D'Oliveiras' rich holdings of aged wine. PdO's aim is to oppose the international conglomerate tendency and to maintain a presence of Portuguese family ownership as the face of Madeira.


Each year they buy fruit from about 140 growers in various parts of the island. Production per annum is about 150,000 litres, but the bodega's holdings of mature wine total around 1.5 million litres of rare old gear in addition to current commercial reserves. They maintain 3 bodega warehouses in Funchal. Should you get a chance to visit, their tasting and sales outlet is in the oldest of these, dating back to 1619, in a former school building at 107 Rua dos Ferreiros.
