Constantia is a suburb of Cape Town, South Arfica, and wines have been exported from here from the beginning of the 19th century.
Vidonia is a dry white wine of Tenerife.
Marsala is the principal dessert wine of Italy made in North West Scicily.
Until the turn of the 18th century Madeira (like port and sherry) was exported as an unfortified wine. In 1753 records exist stating that a 'bucket of brandy was added to each pipe of shipping wine', which gives Madeira its present character.
Manzanillia (correct spelling) is a dry fine wine, fortified and unfortified, of Sanlucar de Barrameda (Spain) and sold as a type of sherry.
Montilla (correct spelling) is a close relation to sherry and similar to Manzanilla.
