"Greek Women in Wine" and "International Association Women in Wine" Profiles
Our Association "The Greek Women of Wine" was established in 1997 by a group of professional women from the world of wine.
Our members (133) are women who have made their careers in the various fields of winemaking. They include vintners, oenologists, viticulturists, wine producers, wine writers, sommeliers, food and beverage managers, marketing directors, and in general all those associated with the wine profession.
Our aim is:
To improve and increase the general public’s knowledge of wines

Our activities are:
