Madeira is a fortified wine produced on a series of eponymous Portuguese islands, located off the coast of Africa. Wines are made in both dry and sweet styles, and lower-quality bottles are widely used for cooking. Madeira production dates back to the 15th century and was originally created as a result of adding neutral distillate to still wines traveling from the East Indies to Europe, for preservation purposes. The process of making Madeira incorporates oxidizing the wine through heating and aging. This gives the wine its signature nutty, dried fruit flavors.
