AIDV Conference 2022
Funchal – Madeira – Portugal
7 – 9 October 2022

IINVITATION TO ATTEND THE 2022 AIDV ANNUAL CONFERENCE

This year the place chosen for our Conference is the beautiful Madeira Island. A place with history, vineyards and a wine bearing the name of the island. The island of Madeira was discovered in 1419 by Portuguese navigators, and lands were soon cleared and used for the cultivation of wheat, vines and sugarcane. The history of Madeira wine begins here and accompanies the development of the island itself over the centuries. Historical records show that 25 years after the beginning of colonization, Madeira wine exports were already a reality!
 
With around six hundred years of existence, Madeira wine allow us to tell a story of internationalization that passes through the most diversified export routes, depending on the international circumstances, in which, along with exports to Europe, great emphasis was placed on routes to the Indies and the Americas, between the 16th and 18th centuries, which, in the latter case, continue to be used today. The fame and prestige of Madeira wines can be attested to by numerous episodes, including the celebration of the independence of the United States of America in 1776, which was celebrated with a toast of Madeira wine!
 
There were many personalities and statesmen who were dazzled by this Wine, of which, emblematic examples, were George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, who were profound connoisseurs of Madeira Wine or Winston Churchill who, on his visits to the island, had the opportunity to know and appreciate these wines. Indeed, references to Madeira Wine can also be found in such famous literary works as those by Shakespeare.
 
So please come and enjoy this wonderful place!
