The International Federation of Wine Brotherhoods (F.I.C.B.) Includes Our "Guidelines for Responsible Wine Tasting" in Latest Publication: "Guide for Blind Grape Varietal and Appellation Recognition Competitions.

The International Federation of Wine Brotherhoods (F.I.C.B.) has recently unveiled its latest publication, a comprehensive "Guide for Organizing Competitions for the Blind Recognition of Grape Varietals and Appellations." This guide empowers wine brotherhoods worldwide to tailor their own rules according to their specific circumstances. An invaluable addition to the guide is the inclusion of WiM's (Wine in Moderation) "Guidelines for Responsible Wine Tasting." This essential resource emphasizes the significance of fostering a sustainable wine culture that benefits all.

Its primary objective is to enable winegrowing fraternities to develop their own regulations for organizing blind recognition competitions, irrespective of their affiliation with a particular winegrowing region. The guide presents a unified framework and encourages an enjoyable approach to the competitions.

By endorsing this guide, the F.I.C.B. aims to enhance the consistency and professionalism of blind recognition competitions while promoting responsible wine tasting practices enabling them to demonstrate their love for wine and make meaningful contributions to a wine culture characterized by responsibility, moderation, sustainability, and inclusivity.
