In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we decided to postpone the conference “Wine Consumption in the Mediterranean Diet: A clarification about health effects”. The organizers’ main concern is to guarantee the health of everyone involved and ensure a high level of attendance from stakeholders around the world.

As Science & Wine Mundial Congress is promoted every two years, we decided to join the two events. The congress “2nd Science & Wine World Congress. Wine and Olive Oil Production: the Fluid Aspect of Mediterranean Diet” is now scheduled for 2 to 4 June 2021 at the same venue.

The programme will include scientific sessions (2 and 3 June) and the Workshop “The importance of science communication to clarify wine health effects” in Quinta do Crasto (4 June). The conference organizers invite all partners to continue their engagement with this event and will work towards ensuring a better programme with an even greater level of participation in 2021.

We look forward to seeing you at Science & Wine 2021 in the exciting and historical cities of Vila Nova de Gaia and Porto, which provides an unforgettable environment for the Conference.
