The Wine Media Guild is an association of wine communicators dedicated to providing wine information and education. Established in the early 1970s, the Guild is open to qualified professionals regardless of residency. Most, but not all, members live and work in the metropolitan New York City area. The membership includes authors, freelance writers, journalists at major newspapers, magazines or broadcast media, internet writers and wine educators. The Guild holds monthly themed educational tastings, events and luncheons, with leading wine industry figures as speakers (see the calendar).
To become a member, a candidate must be a professional wine writer/communicator/educator, be sponsored by two (2) current members of the Guild, submit copies of three articles or broadcasts, or one book published within 12 months of your application date. Upon acceptance the annual dues are $75.00.
Our mission is to foster and promote future wine writers as they enter the world of wine. Each year, The Guild provides scholarships in the name of The Wine Media Guild to wine studies program enrollees at select colleges.
