Vinissima The association "Vinissima - Frauen & Wein e.V." was founded in 1991 by seven wine women at the Kaiserstuhl in Baden in southern Baden. New members are only accepted on the personal recommendation of a member. Today there are over 500 members in ten regional groups. The Vinissima Board of Directors is elected every two years during the General Meeting in accordance with the Articles of Association. Re-election is only possible once, so that all board positions are filled again after four years at the latest.

Part of the motivation was that at that time women were underrepresented in the wine industry. Sharing knowledge and experience, getting to know each other personally and showing solidarity with one another are essential parts of the Vinissima idea. Vinissima sees itself as a nationwide, professional and intergenerational network for women who work as winemakers, oenologists, scientists, wine merchants, restaurateurs, sommeliers, journalists or wine marketing specialists. Further education and exchange of members are promoted by many activities on federal and regional level.

The wein.plus encyclopaedia is a comprehensive, well-researched reference work. Available anytime and anywhere, it has become an indispensable part of teaching, used by students and myself alike. Highly recommended!
