II International Congress on Grapevine and Wine Sciences (2ICGWS)


With the success of the first conference, The Institute of Grapevine and Wine Sciences, (Instituto de Ciencias de la Vid y el Vino, ICVV) is proud to announce the second edition. The II International Conference of Grapevine and Wine Sciences will be held in Rioja Forum (Logroño, Spain) from the 8th to the 10th of November, 2023.

This congress will provide and constitute a culmination for the most relevant grapevine and wine research currently taking place. Moreover, the conference will promote a multidisciplinary interaction space for professionals who want to keep up to date on current advances in these fields. To be inclusive to all who wish to attend, the official language of the congress will be English. However, throughout the conference simultaneous translation will be available from English to Spanish.

This international forum aims to discuss and present the latest developments in viticulture, microbiology, genetic approaches, biotechnology, enology, wine chemistry and sensory analysis. In order to demonstrate how scientific research can positively influence the production of better, safer, healthier and higher quality grapes and wines, in a context framed by sustainability, climate change and circular economy, internationally recognized scientists will be invited to share their findings.

We encourage all participants to contribute with their most recent, novel, and even unpublished results in an oral communication or a poster.

Since the conference will be held in the heart of the Rioja DOCa, the location is surrounded by magnificent vineyards and some of the most prestigious wine producers of Spain.

We´re looking forward to meeting you in La Rioja.

In this edition, the II International Congress of Vine and Wine Sciences organizes two satellite workshops for Wednesday morning, November 8. Registration to attend one of the two workshops is to be done through the registration page.
Prize: 30€

Workshop 1: What do –omics provide to the grape and wine sciences? An update

In this workshop, renowned experts in these approaches will share their experience on the possibilities that genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics can offer to the grape and wine sector. In addition, they will illustrate their experience with examples to show how these tools can be integrated to provide new scientific knowledge to contribute to the development of the grape and wine industry.

Workshop 2: Wines of the future: round table & tasting

The workshop consists of a round table that will deal with the future of viticulture and wine production in the context of climate change. Experts playing different roles within the wine industry will form the table and discuss about consumer preferences.

Different wines will be tasted in order to illustrate the different possible trends in the wine industry.


The abstract submission period begins on April 3, 2023 and ends on June 2, 2023.

Calle San Millán, 23 - 25, 26004 Logroño, La Rioja

The Palacio de Congresos y Auditorio de La Rioja, better known as Riojaforum, is located in the Parque de la Ribera del Ebro, in an easily accessible area, five minutes walking distance from the center of Logroño. This proximity and accessibility can be extrapolated to the excellent communications available in Logroño.


Go to the Riojaforum website.


Logroño is the capital of the Autonomous Community of La Rioja. It is bathed by the Ebro River, which it embraces in its growth and development.
Among the best known virtues of the city, it is worth mentioning the culture of wine, gastronomy, the Camino de Santiago, the Old Town or the character of First Commercial City of Spain.

The size of the city invites visitors to stroll around and enjoy its significant enclaves. The Paseo de El Espolón, the co-cathedral of Santa María de La Redonda; the convent of La Merced, current seat of the regional Parliament; the characteristic Portales street, the church of Santiago El Real, or the church of Santa María de Palacio, are some examples of interest that cannot be missed.

How to get to Logroño?

Logroño can be reached by plane, train, bus or private transport; the main roads are the LO-20, the A-12, the A-11 and the AP-68 highway, which connects Logroño with Vitoria, Bilbao, Pamplona, San Sebastián, Zaragoza, Soria, Madrid and Barcelona.

The nearest airports (apart from Logroño) are in Bilbao (152 kilometers away), Vitoria (86 kilometers away) and Pamplona (92 kilometers away).

For more information, please consult the Logroño City Council website.


This region, located in the western vertex of the Ebro valley, presents a privileged variety of landscapes, flora and fauna, due to the different geographical characteristics of its natural regions, giving life to the rivers that cross it to fertile plains.


Being the smallest region of Spain, it has taken part in all the historical moments of this one. Occupied by the Romans and Muslims, in the Middle Ages it was the center of disputes between Navarre, Castile and Aragon. In this same period, the Camino de Santiago was a determining phenomenon for its cultural development, becoming a center of influence of the first order, especially through its monasteries, true foci of knowledge and where the first written text in Castilian was forged. Thus, the road is marked by monumental towns of great beauty such as Calahorra, Arnedo, San Millán de la Cogolla, Santo Domingo de la Calzada, and Logroño, already founded by the Romans and nowadays
