Port & Douro: A Fascinating Journey of Discovery and Appreciation

The Port and Douro Wines Institute (IVDP) is back at Vinexpo Hong Kong inviting visitors to its stand to feast their senses, meet the producers and attend the themed seminars to be held at the stand.

A fascinating journey of discovery and appreciation of the unique wines produced in the Douro Demarcated Region is guaranteed.

The mission of IVDP, I.P. is to promote the control of the quality and quantity of Port wines, regulating the production process, and the defence and protection of the Douro and Port denominations of origin and the geographical indication of the Douro Region. At Vinexpo 2018, the IVDP is sharing with eight producers, namely Bulas, Churchill, Porto Réccua Vinhos, Ramos Pinto, Real Companhia Velha, Quinta de Santa Eufêmia, Quinta do Vallado and Vallegre.

The stands are buzzing with activities, tastings and seminars throughout the three-day event.
