The Greek Wine Federation was created in 1995, when the historic Federation of Greek Wine and Spirits Industries was divided into two distinct sections, one for the wine industry and one for the spirits industry. It operates, since, as a non – profit organization.
As an institution dealing solely with wine, it represents the interests of the wine industry in Greece and abroad.
Greek Wine Federation, among others, aims at:
– Developing the production and distribution of Greek wines and vinicultural products through research and technological innovation, in order to achieve a high quality production
– Safeguarding and promoting the interests of the wine industry, while dealing with the Greek State, the European Union and the International Institutions
– Promoting the products of the wine industry in the internal and the external market with the establishment of a coherent national policy on wine
– Cooperating with the European and International Institutions on wine production or relevant sectors, in order to promote the interests of the Greek wine production.
The companies – members of the Greek Wine Federation produce 75% of the total volume of wine produced in Greece and export 95% of bottled Greek wine.
