  • Cyprus and Paphos vales, the smiling LovesMight leave with joy fair ... ... ... (Terrantez is sweet and Bastardo is on the dry side, but these grapes are quite rare). What this means is, you’ve got a Madeira for every occasion. Personally, I’m not a big fan of pairing sweet wine with dessert. I like Sercial with dinner (the char on a piece of... Read More
