The Americas Region of International Wine & Food
Society has over 3,500 members in 75 branches who gather in the spirit of our founder, André Simon: Wine, food and friends.

Many of the reasons for joining us are discussed here, but it’s impossible to briefly describe the variety of experiences our members enjoy. Join us and savor unique, sophisticated dining and luxurious travel with friends both old and new.

Here are the ways to become part of our venerable but vital Society:

Join an existing branch. Please look here to see if a branch is near you. Membership policies vary considerably between branches and many are at or near their membership limits. However, this will give you a starting point for more information, as each branch’s website has a contact link.

If you find that you’re not close to an existing branch, there are still two ways to join.

Start your own branch. Perhaps you have friends who’d also like to be part of our Society. Open your own branch! More information on how to do so can be found here.

Become an independent member. If you are simply interested in joining the society without being affiliated to a branch, click here to contact our Administrator. You will get more information about becoming an independent member.

However you choose to join us, you will find yourself among like-minded individuals who relish the pleasures of the table. We look forward to welcoming you in the best spirit of wine, food and friends.
