The mission of Volcanic Wines International is to take the leading role in defining and establishing a Volcanic Wine Movement, and to provide educational and promotional opportunities for volcanic wine producers internationally. The 1st International Volcanic Wine Conference (IVWC), scheduled for March 2018 and organized by Volcanic Wines International, will act as the catalyst and facilitator in bringing together the world’s volcanic regions to create a “Volcanic Wine Brand,” defined as a unique category of wines produced under some of the most extreme viticultural conditions on the planet. Volcanic Wines International also plans to establish the volcanic wine brand as a premium category of high quality wines with a true sense of place.
