Welcome Reception

The welcome reception for the participants of CSNDSP2020 is to be held on 20 July, at the elegant Casa dos Arcos da Boavista. Situated at the Avenida da Boavista, next to the City Park, Casa dos Arcos keeps alive the refinement and sophistication of other times, recreating the charm of older traditions. A tranquil location to relax with a bite and a drink after the trip and socialise in an informal atmosphere with the other participants.

The event is included in the registration.

Gala Dinner

CSNDSP2020 ends on a high note with a gala dinner on the 21 July, held at Restaurante Barão Fladgate. The restaurant enjoys a spectacular location and an atmospheric setting in the grounds of Taylor’s Port cellars with magnificent views across the Douro River to the old historic centre of Porto. It offers a contemporary interpretation of traditional cuisine where the focus is on fresh local ingredients and showcasing the authentic flavours of Portugal.  The wine list features a wide variety of labels from the main Portuguese vineyard areas and, as would be expected, a comprehensive choice of both wood-aged and Vintage Ports. 

The event is included in the registration.
