 Later that evening, the Municipality of Anadia provided us with dinner accompanied by the famous traditional Portuguese music Fado. Fado is a musical genre that can be traced back to the 1820s in Lisbon, Portugal, but probably has much older roots. Fado historian and scholar Rui Vieira Nery states that "the only reliable information on the history of fado is transmitted orally and dates back at best to the 1820s and 1830s. But even this information was often modified in the process of transmission from generation to generation that has reached the present day.
The surprise of the evening was also announced at the event. The next Portugal Wine trophy will be held in Madeira.
