CAF was established on April 2 1951 as a wholesaler of products and services for the regional development of agriculture. In 2012, CAF created the MADEIRA VINTNERS brand. This was done partly to support Madeiran grape farmers by giving them a new market and partly to become the first new producer of Madeira since 1946.
MADEIRA VINTNERS is an exclusively female team who manage relationships with the grape farmers, technical advice, winemaking, control and selection, production and marketing. Everything is carried out by the hands of women. Our success has been recognised by a number of awards including the Great Diamond award at the “Vino y Mujer” competition in Madrid and a gold medal from the Challenge International du Vin.
