Ep. 1002 Marta Mendonça & Cristina Crava | Uncorked

Welcome to episode 1002 in which host Polly Hammond interviews Marta Mendonça & Cristina Crava of the Porto Protocol Foundation, this week on Uncorked. In this episode, we are joined by the leadership team of the Porto Protocol, Marta Mendonca and Cristina Crava. As one of the oldest organizations combatting climate issues affecting wine, The Porto Protocol has taken a radical approach to collaboration, competition and certification. Today, we’ll talk about optimism in the face of crisis, sharing solutions for the greater good, and how The Porto Protocol convinced over a dozen wine producers and providers to share their story on video. Let’s get into it!

The Porto Protocol Foundation is an international non-profit institution, founded by Taylor Fladgate Port, with hundreds of other members commitTed to make a greater contribution to mitigate climate change.
