The company (now extinct) that created this brand was founded in 1928 with the purpose of exporting fortified Madeira wine to Sweden, which it did for 16 years.
In 1944, the company began to diversify its markets. This expansion quickly encompassed the remaining Scandinavian countries and other international markets. For many years Carmo Vinhos, LDA. produced and bottled Madeira wines for the well known house Harveys of Bristol, for the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Denmark..
