The first National Conference in 2017 was held in Porto, Portugal on September 7, 2017 and addressed some of the most important topics related to vine and wine: terroir, viticulture, winemaking, sensory evaluation, marketing and health.

The conference “Science & Wine – from terroir to glass” was the perfect occasion for cross-fertilization between scientists and students from different fields (enology, viticulture, chemistry, marketing and health) together with winemakers, winemakers and sectoral institutions.
