We are on a mission to lead a sector wide commitment to improve diversity in the wine industry — from board members to wine makers.

wine for progress

In 2023 we launched Wine for Progress which is a free and voluntary code that allows wine companies to prove their commitment to improving diversity within the wine sector. 

What do we mean by diversity? Diversity in all forms - gender, race, sexual orientation, socio-economic background and physical ability. 

For companies to join Wine for Progress, they must: (i) commit to 25% of their board to be diverse (increasing to 50% by 2025); (ii) financially support and mentor diverse wine enthusiasts through their formal WSET wine education; (iii) commit to a clear D&I policy. In return, companies enjoy the use of our Wine for Progress logo and will be included (where possible) in future media opportunities.
