Welsh Brothers Madeira , 1779

Madeira Verdelho

Description and Reviews:
The oldest known Welsh Bros. Madeira. The Welsh family coat of
arms is stamped on the wax seal. Welsh Bros. established in 1794
and were the largest shipper of Madeira wine before the odium
outbreak in 1852. They were important suppliers to the Russian and
the Swedish courts. In 1893 John F. Welsh was appointed the
Russian Consul. In the second part of the 19th century, Welsh Bros.
focussed on shipping high quality bottled wines to the United States.
They were known to mature their wines in "estufas do sol" rather than
artificially heated estufas. Welsh Bros. co-founded the Madeira Wine
Company in 1913.
