The event was organized by the School of Sciences of the University of Minho (ECUM), took place last Friday, October 8, and included the presentation of several scientific projects currently in progress at UMinho, Sogrape and ADVID/CoLAB WINES&WINES, with the objective of helping the sector to become more resilient and sustainable.

The SustainWine project aims to develop a training and environmental education program adapted to different audiences. Its purpose is to promote and publicize the best that is already being done in viticultural ecosystems, regarding the conservation and protection of biodiversity.
For the next few weeks, different informative and didactic contents will be published, focused on the dissemination of good practices that have already been adopted by many wine producers, as well as their importance as an identity value of our territory.
Are you sure that the wine you have bought is authentic? This is probably one of the questions that today’s consumers are concerned about when they buy a bottle of expensive and high-quality wine. Blockchain technology has the potential to overcome important barriers faced in implementing wine provenance and traceability schemes.
