The Madeira Wine Festival 2022
The Madeira Wine Festival is one of the island´s main tourist attractions that pays tribute to this precious nectar and its undeniable socioeconomic significance, an event programmed from August, 25th to September, 11th.
Taking place during the grape harvest in late August, early September, this event aims to recreate the old traditions of Madeira, which were developed over centuries of labour in viticulture. This event has been commemorated since the late seventies of the last century. It begins in Funchal and includes the European Folklore Week, ornamentations, exhibitions and live portraits depicting the wine culture, as well as traditional and light music performances.
This Festival culminates in Estreito de Câmara de Lobos, with the Wine Harvest Festival.
