What is the Tasters Guild?
The Tasters Guild is a worldwide society of wine and food enthusiasts who share a common interest through a wide variety of educational and social activities. Our quest is to educate consumers and spread the word of responsible wine and food consumption - and we have fun doing it!
Established in 1987, the Tasters Guild consists of over 55 active chapters throughout the country that bring together consumers, wine, food and the wine and food service industries. The local chapters provide activity and ongoing wine and food events for their members and guests.
In support of these local Chapters, there is an extensive network of retail wine and specialty food shops, superior restaurants, top-rated hotels, premium wineries, knowledgeable wholesalers and top international importers to provide easy access to quality wines and food often with special discounts for members. A detailed listing of all the retail/trade affiliates, and local guilds is distributed to the entire membership by way of the Guild's Network Directory.
The Tasters Guild conducts an Annual International Wine Judging in the spring when hundreds of newly released wines are judged by panels of experts. Toward the end of summer we also coordinate our Annual Convention & Consumer Wine Judging for members. The results of both events are reported in the Guild's official publication, the TASTERS GUILD JOURNAL, as well as other national periodicals.
The Tasters Guild sponsors yearly travel excursions for its members to all corners of the wine world. Trips include annual Food and Wine Cruises, exclusive tours to the finest wineries and food capitals of Europe, Australia, and of course, the United States. The best way to learn about wine and food is to experience it through responsible consumption, and the goal of the Tasters Guild Orlando is to provide every possible opportunity to encounter the best in wine and culinary delights!
The Tasters Guild Orlando is not just for the "connoisseur". It is intended to be a broad-based organization able to benefit all levels of consumers, from novice to professional, who have a genuine interest in learning more about the responsible use of wine and food.
Tasters Guild Orlando is the Central Florida local chapter of the Tasters Guild International directed by Edward Nickell, Rhonda Beck and Nicholas Olivieri.
The official publication of Tasters Guild, The Tasters Guild Journal, provides Guild news plus articles on wine, food, recipes, tasting notes, and travel. To subscribe to The Tasters Guild Journal join Tasters Guild Orlando.
