The International Federation of Wine and Spirits Journalists and Writers was created in 1987 (officially registered in 1989). Its goal is to promote contacts between wine journalists and writers all over the world and to defend our profession.

Beyond providing an international press card, we have more ambitious objectives:

  • help our members to establish contacts to editors, newspapers and magazines in other countries

  • assure the recognition of our members by the producers, publishers,
    public relations' organisations and all members of the trade

  • create contacts between organisations of the wine and spirit business organising press presentation (events, tours) and our journalist members

  • defend our journalist members and the freedom of the press

  • respect of a common code of ethic

Our members are from about 60 countries
