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.
For further information about our chapter or to be placed on our email list, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
