The International Riesling Foundation is a private, not-for-profit organization created in November 2007 to increase the awareness, understanding and consumption of Riesling wines, and to stimulate cooperation among Riesling producers and others to that end. Its
purpose is not to produce or market Riesling, but rather to enhance the effort of Riesling producers and trade associations. The IRF’s vision, mission, and objectives are as follows:
Riesling wines will be recognized and demanded internationally as the world’s most noble wines due to their diversity of styles, regional character, consistent quality, and compatibility with food.
Increase awareness, understanding, trial and sales of Riesling wines through a comprehensive, integrated system of industry cooperation, research, trade education, and consumer communication.
