Porto Wine Brotherhood induces Wine in Moderation
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.
