In the late 70s, after the Madeira Wine Company (MWC) has become very well-known and influential, the number of partners decreased. For a short time the family Blandy took place at the helm of the Board. It was during this period, they realized the need to find a partner that would develop and ensure international distribution network and thereby increase the level of commercial company and its wines.
