AboutChief Wine Officer

Connecting the C-suite since 2005

Chief Wine Officer was established to do one thing exceptionally well: bring executive-level leaders together. We accomplish this in a relaxed and engaging environment that encourages the free sharing of knowledge and ideas.

After attending one too many bland meet-and-greets, we set out to make events more entertaining and inspiring. Networking should be an opportunity to connect with great minds in your industry, enjoy yourself and learn. We offer a space where you can meet your peers, hear cutting-edge insights and enjoy fine dining and wine tasting led by a world-renowned wine expert.

From humble beginnings, we have become the premier networking and members society in Europe, the UK, and the US, hosting over 150+ events a year and partnering with 50+ industry-leading enterprises.


Chief Wine Officer is founded, and our first event is hosted in London.
