All Madeira wines should be stored upright, away from direct sunlight and just below room temperature.
Once bottled, Vintage Madeira's can remain in excellent condition for many years, even for centuries. Older vintages should be decanted to remove any deposit and should be opened well in advance of drinking. The rule of thumb is to open the wine one day for every 10 years that the wine has been in bottle.Once opened, Madeira wine can last for many months if stored in the correct conditions.
Serve the dry and medium dry styles chilled (12°C) and the medium rich and rich styles slightly chilled (16°C).
