Experience the historic atmosphere of the Davenport House while learning about and tasting a unique and flavorful wine. Patrons are oriented to the long and rich tradition of Madeira (wine) as it relates to the history of Savannah, and then they participate in a Madeira party. During the experience, patrons will sample two types of Madeira and see the historic house at dusk, including spaces usually off-limits to tour patrons.

The performance requires that guests be able to walk up and down stairs and maneuver in the candlelit rooms.
