Welcome to the Rochester Chapter!  

About Our Chapter:

 The Rochester Chapter of Women for WineSense (WWS) was formed in


 We welcome women and men, from beginning wine tasters to

 professionals working in the wine industry to join us the second Tuesday

 of every month for our meetings.  We meet at various locations in the

 Rochester, NY area  including country clubs, hotels, restaurants, local

 wineries, and wine bars.

 We are one of the most active chapters within the WWS organization.  In  addition to our monthly meetings, we hold several "education" and

 "special events" throughout the year for our members.

 Presenters at our meetings have included winery owners, winemakers,

 wine educators, regional sales representatives, local liquor store

 personnel, and our enthusiastic chapter members. 

 We have enjoyed wines from areas as diverse as Austria, Argentina,

 Australia, France, Finger Lakes, Chile, Italy, South Africa and Alaska (not

 the latter, but you never know with us).  We focus our monthly meetings

 on wine and food pairing sessions.

 Our chapter has over 140 active members and is growing! 94% of our

 members are female and 6% male.
