Special Note: if you cannot make this tasting at 6:30pm, 
Ricardo will be working the floor afterwards at Terroir, as guest sommelier from 8:00pm – 11:00pm. 
He will be talking Madeira…and let’s be honest, it is a subject we all need to know much more about.
And he will be pouring a special flight of wines to further illuminate the glory of Madeira.

*Ricardo began working with his mother at Barbeito in the summer of 1991
(his grandfather founded the company in 1946). In the following 25 years, he elaborated on the family’s stocks of historical wines and introduced a new line-up of wines (his Signature series) 
that have brought increased acclaim to one of the world’s most unique wine growing areas.
In Ricardo’s hands, history and terroir and yummy grape juice find a thoughtful and compelling advocate.


And here are two reasons why it is America’s wine?
-on July 4th, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed by John Hancock +++ and
the union of the 13 colonies and their representatives toasted their success with Madeira.
(apparently, the 56 signatories consumed 57 bottles of wine)
-George Washington celebrated his inauguration as 1st President of these United States with Madeira
