About Detroit Wine Organization
The DWO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, incorporated in 2002. Our mission is to promote the education and enjoyment of wine, and the great wines and wine experts in our local market, while benefiting other local charities. In fact, since 2002, the DWO has raised more than $1,700,000 for metro Detroit charities. We accomplish our mission by hosting events that are both educational and fun.
Our ever-growing membership base -currently 4,000 strong -is comprised of people of all ages and from all walks of life, whose wine experience ranges from those with very little experience to others with vast knowledge. What they share is a desire to explore the joys of wine while meeting others with similar interests.
Our charity partners are locally based organizations that our members believe in and support.
Our sponsors range from local wine distributors and suppliers to local businesses big and small who believe in the mission.
