2009 - Cluster of Douro Region Wines

The clustering of Regional Douro Wines (Vinhos da Região do Douro) was recognised on July 15th of 2009 as a Collective Efficiency Strategy (Estratégia de Eficiência Coletiva) by the Ministry of Environment, Spatial Planning and Regional Development (Ministério do Ambiente, do Ordenamento do Território e do Desenvolvimento Regional), the Ministry of Economy and Innovation (Ministério da Economia e Inovação) and the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries (Ministério da Agricultura, Desenvolvimento Rural e Pescas), following the application submitted by ADVID. In this context, ADVID was recognised as the managing body of the Cluster.

The activities developed by ADVID since its inception, enabling the submission of an application with a coherent set of initiatives integrated into a plan of action, were in large part responsible for this recognition:

- Strategic Lines of Development;
- Complementary Projects;
- Cultural and promotional initiatives - communication and dissemination of knowledge;
- Management of good agricultural practices in the DDR (Demarcated Douro Region);
- Development of partnerships and institutional relationships.

The Cluster’s mission is to “promote and consolidate the wine production sector in the Douro Region through a sustainable technological strategy applied to all of its stakeholders"; the sights of the Cluster are directed at "an environmentally, economically and socially sustainable sector driven by a culture of network cooperation towards the reduction of threats and the optimisation of opportunities".
