Developed for wine professionals by wine professionals, Global Wine & Spirits is the world's leading wine e-business network for buyers and sellers in the wine and spirits industry

Since 2000, Global Wine & Spirits has helped thousands of wine professionals to significantly increase their international business opportunities.

Global Wine & Spirits, the world's leading e-business network for wine professionals, was created in 2000 with the view of bringing together those in the international wine market and creating business contacts and opportunities for our members. GWS connects wine and spirits buyers with wine and spirits producers (B2B) over the Internet.

The GWS Business Model: A Subscription Based Wine E-Business Network for Industry Professionals

Membership on GWS is reserved strictly for professionals in the wine and spirits trade. Our members include wine producers and importers, wine and spirits wholesalers, distributors, agents, retailers and more.

Our business model is subscription based rather than transactional, meaning that our members can develop contacts and business opportunities via GWS without having to worry about any commissions or transaction fees.

GWS enables professional buyers to source for wines and contacts around the world from a critical mass of producers. Our site allows them to consolidate information, compare offers and access wine and spirits market information quickly and easily. Our services are free of charge for buyers.

Our Aim: To Facilitate Connectivity Between Wine Professionals on the International Wine & Spirits Market

The aim of Global Wine & Spirits has always been to facilitate interaction and connectivity between wine professionals by helping wine producers to develop their export markets, and wine buyers to source efficiently and effectively. We provide cutting-edge technology and tools that enable our members worldwide to post offers and requests and to communicate in real time, 24/7.
