The 26 new confreres were invested during the ceremony of the III Great Chapter of the Confraternity of the Moscatel of Setúbal, which took place on November 24th in the Hall of the Town Hall of Setúbal. The new confreres are committed to defend, value and promote the generous Muscovy of Setúbal, which commemorates this year the 110 years of its productive demarcation. As part of the celebrations of the 110 years of the Demarcated Region of the Muscat of Setúbal, was also launched a commemorative and limited lot of Moscatel de Setúbal and a new official glass.
