Description of Jefferson Madeira from October 11, 1904.

The collection of history of wine posts for February is quite diverse.  These posts explore the sale side of things with historic auctions of Madeira attributed to President Thomas Jefferson, a contemporary auction of 200 year old port, and even the 78 editions of Berry Bros & Rudd wine lists. Some 1,500 year old grape seeds were found and the history of wine reviewing and scores get further attention.  If you find all of this fascinating then please help support and encourage research into the History of Wine by sharing this post and contributing links from around the world. Until the end of March you may find more history of wine at:
