International Union of Oenologists
(Union International des Œnologues or International Union of Oenologists)
The International Union of Oenologists (UIŒ or UIOE) is a civil association based in Paris, founded in Milan (Italy) on 24 April 1965.
Today, the UIŒ brings together more than 20,000 oenologists from all over the world, including the majority in Europe. Each country has its own training system that meets the definition of the profession dictated by the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV).
To date, sixteen national unions of oenologists fall under the International Union of Oenologists from the following countries: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Uruguay.
The International Union of Oenologists has several main objectives:
- Create unity among winemakers across the world;
- Protect the title of winemaker (oenologist) and to ensure the good name of the profession;
- Promote the common professional and economic interests of oenologists;
- Contribute to the development of vineyards and wine in general;
- Promote further education of its members;
- Cooperate, in particular, with relevant bodies and organisations sharing similar objectives.
