Welcome to the Marin Brach of the International Wine and Food Society.



We are delighted that you have visited one of the largest and most active Branches in the IWFS world. The Marin Branch is in its third decade and proudly moves forward carrying on the ideals of IWFS founder André Simon, and our branch founders Haskell and Rachel Norman.


We conduct one to two events per month featuring outstanding vintages of wines from around the world. Our objectives are primarily educational, with an intellectual pursuit to a better understanding of fine wines and extraordinary cuisine enjoyed in the traditional grand dining experience.


In order to insure high standards our events are typically limited to 24 persons. We hope you will join us at an upcoming event, and consider becoming a member of the oldest and most renowned gourmet society in the world!
