Parque de Ciência e Tecnologia de Vila Real 5000-033 Vila Real


ADVID is a non-profit association, established in 1982 with the aim of driving the modernization of viticulture and, thus, to increasing the profitability of the vineyards of the Douro Demarcated Region. The association now has a national reach and currently has 175 wine companies in its membership, along with a number of academic, public and business entities.

In 2009, following the published application, the Douro Region Wine Cluster and ADVID, as its Managing Entity, were recognized. In 2017, in a public ceremony chaired by the Prime Minister of Portugal, the Cluster status changed to National Cluster of Vine and Wine being ADVID its Managing Entity. The Cluster promotes the internationalization, innovation, competitiveness and sustainability of the Portuguese wine sector.  ADVID has the capacity to carry out studies, technical and scientific research, its credibility having been demonstrated over more than 32 years, and in 2019 was recognized by National Innovation Association (ANI) as an institution apt to perform I&D in the agri-food and environmental techno-scientific domains. Presently, ADVID possesses a dedicated R&D department, CoLAB Vines&Wines, which possesses its own human resources, constituted by experts in multidisciplinary areas, thus representing an important asset for the project proposed. This collaborative laboratory constitutes a new project approach in Portugal and interacts with companies or associations and universities.
