About The IWFS

In a few words, how would one describe the International Wine & Food Society?

We have been a presence in the world of wine and food since 1933, when the great André Simon hosted a London dinner for some of his friends.  He proposed they organize a society dedicated to food, wine and the marriage of the two. 


Simon's idea took root and grew.  Today, thousands of members in 135 branches around the world regularly gather to relish the pleasures of the table.

Branches are located in over 25 countries.  Each one has a Branch Contact that helps traveling members find the best of wine and food wherever they go.


Branches are the cornerstone of our Society.  Local events range from black-tie formal banquets to shirtsleeve walkaround tastings.
