About Us

CONNECTING INDUSTRY LEADERS SINCE 2007

It started with a simple idea: how can we make networking events actually fun? In 2007, we founded Chief Wine Officer on the principle of mixing business with pleasure, all with the aim of giving the C-suite a space to meet each other, learn cutting-edge business insights, and enjoy several of the world’s finest wines.

Since then, we’ve brought together thousands of C-level execs and business leaders from around the world. Over 75 cities and more than 15 countries have hosted our peer-to-peer networking experiences so far, and we’re not stopping now.

But what’s the thing that sets CWO apart? Here, you’ll taste several of the world’s finest wines in the company of a famed wine expert or Master of Wine. You’ll learn new and exciting facts about the wines and compete against your peers to see if you have what it takes to win the title of Chief Wine Officer.

Check out our upcoming events to find a CWO event near you and in your field.
