Madeira Wine Company is a leader in the manufacture and export of premium wines from Madeira. The company was established in 1913. Its main goal to this day is to promote the wines of Madeira in the international markets, increasing the efficiency and quality of production. In 1925, to the "Madeira Wine Company" joined the family company "Blandy" and "Leacock", and a little later and families of "Miles", "Cossart Gordon" and others. Thus was formed the largest company in the production and export of Madeira wine.
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. Thus, the Madeira Wine Company worked closely with Symington Family Estate - famous, recognized manufacturer of port for more than 100 years old, with whom they formed a partnership in order to increase sales.
Arising from the consequences of this union have been crucial to the development of MWC. The company has a wide network of Symington distribution of products, deep knowledge of the commercial market, which certainly contributed to the wine-making activities of Madeira Wine Company. In 1989 he formed a partnership with the Symington family Blandy, and since then a lot of time and effort was put into improving methods of production and to the strengthening of the sales network recognized brands MWC: "Blandy", "Kossart Gordon", "Leacock" and "Miles" .
