Grape variety


Tinta Negra (aka Molar, Saborinho).

History of the wine


Tinta Negra is part of the ancient vineyards of Madeira Island, being still today the basis for the wines that made the island famous. Outside Madeira Island it is a rare grape variety that can only be found in regions where the sea is close by, gaining another name like Molar in Colares or Saborinho in the Azores. "Villões" is the nickname that the Porto-Santenses give to the Madeirans, which comes from the name vila (town) that gained a double connotation. This is our Tinta Negra from Villões.
