To mark the celebration of its 10 years anniversary, the Confraria do Vinho do Porto (Port Wine Brotherhood) inducted Wine in Moderation into the Confraria, in the rank of Infanção.
According to the Brotherhood, Infanções “are all relevant personalities or institutions who made a significant contribution to the promotion, prestige and dignity of Port Wine or who deserve to be distinguished with this rank due to their personal prestige or top-ranking positions”. It is therefore a tribute and recognition to the important work achieved by Wine in Moderation in the last 10 years, also marking the long-standing commitment of the Porto Brotherhood to the Wine in Moderation programme.
The enthronement ceremony took place last 22 June 2018 at the Palácio da Bolsa (Stock Exchange) in the city of Porto, where 97 new Confrades had the honour of being inducted this year. Ursula Fradera, Vice President of the WiM Association, proudly represented Wine in Moderation in this occasion.
The Confraria do Vinho do Porto was officially created in 1982 and was established with the purpose of communicating, promoting and reinforcing the worldwide reputation of Port Wine. They are also members of the International Federation of Wine Brotherhoods, an Associated Partner of the Wine in Moderation Programme as well.
