VINISSIMA – Women & Wine is the first and the only German association of women in the wine business.
In our association women with different professions in the wine industry i.e. wine producers, wine growers, oenologists, restaurant owners, merchants, sommeliers, journalists and marketing experts come together. All these backgrounds reflect a wide knowledge from various points of view, which makes it exciting to exchange ideas and to network.
In 2016 VINISSIMA celebrated its 25th birthday. There are 560 members all over Germany but with priority in the wine growing regions. 11 regional groups exist today, each with an own speaker. They contribute to our programme with their own regional events.
We present a wide programm of continuing education for our members: that means trainings, seminars or workshops on different subjects and an excursion abroad.
Every year special »Vinissima Awards« and scholarships are given to women who i.e. finished the best »Diploma of wines and spirits« in the german division of the Wines and Spirits Education Trust (WSET).
Our targets are:
- care of wine and culture of wine
- encouraging knowledge education about wine for women
- encouraging equal rights of women promote cultural aspects of wine
- care of environment
- Network for our members within Germany and abroad
