About this Event

The Mediterranean diet is a model of eating based on the traditional foods and drinks of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. In the last decades, it has been promoted worldwide as one of the healthiest dietary patterns and has been reported to have benefits regarding to chronic diseases and longevity. Mediterranean Diet is characterized by a high consumption of fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes and nuts, moderately high consumption of fish, moderate-to-low consumption of dairy products, low consumption of red meat and meat products, with olive oil as the principal source of fat. Mediterranean diet encourages consumption of 1 to 2 glasses of wine a day are allowed for men and one glass a day for women. However, many consumers don’t know what to think about the health effects of drinking wine. Moderate drinking has been associated to health benefits by some researchers. Other ones, on the other hand, claim that even the occasional drink is harmful to health and suggest that governments should think to advise people to abstain completely.

The clarification of this issue was what motivated Science & Wine to promote the 1-Day Conference “Wine Consumption in the Mediterranean Diet: A clarification about health effects” be held in Porto at June 4 of 2020. The Conference will start with invited oral communications in order to introduce different opinions regarding this issue and will end with a round table.

Organizers of the conference welcome abstract submissions that are closely related to the conference area. ONLY ABSTRACTS OF PRESENTING AUTHORS REGISTERED IN CONFERENCE WILL BE EVALUATED BY THE SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE. Abstracts are evaluated and selected according to double-blind peer reviews by the scientific committee of the conference and scholars specialized in this field. Only the authors of the best 5 abstracts selected by scientific committee will present their work at the conference. Results of the abstract acceptance or rejection will be sent to the author between 15 and 30 of April. At the conference, the best 3 presentations will be chosen. Prizes for the 3 winners will be announced soon.

To answer to several requests, the organization committee decide to include in the program a workshop day to be held at June 5. The workshop is titled “The importance of science communication to clarify wine health effects”.

A research-practice gap exists across all fields of public health and medical practice, including the ones regarding nutritional practices. The main goal of this workshop is to design a communication strategy to increase literacy and education regarding wine consumption. It will be discussed how to promote effective science communication as well as strategies to improve the relationship between science, public policy, and decision-makers. Wine health effects issues lie at the boundary between science and society. Therefore, effective solutions require communication among scientific, policymaking, and public communities.

This workshop will take place at Quinta do Crasto (Gouvinhas, Sabrosa, Portugal). Workshop price include all documentation, transportation from and to Porto, lunch and a Douro river experience.

We look forward to seeing you at Science & Wine 2019 in the exciting and historical cities of Vila Nova de Gaia and Porto, which provides an unforgettable environment for the Congress.
