Madeira from 1796 found in New Jersey Mansion
Americans used to have a preference for Madeira wine, with many improving on the long sea voyage. So it is not surprising that very old bottles of Madeira turn up from time to time. But several cases of the 1796 vintage have been uncovered in the New Jersey Mansion, Liberty Hall. The wine is 221 years old and while no one has yet tasted the wine, there are doubts about its drinkability. Wines this old make interesting Museum pieces. Thankfully Liberty Hall is a Museum. It looks like they have a new exhibit!
