The morning of the 18th will be spent in the town hall's Salão Nobre with talks by Elizabeth Gabay and Rui Soares and tastings of sparkling wines from the Távora-Varosa region. In the afternoon, still in the Salão Nobre, Paulo-Russell Pinto from the IVDP will ask the question “Do Rosés Age?” and there will be commented Rosé Wine Tastings.
