The annual meetings of the Forum determine basic directions for its other activities in wine business sector as an international standing body: they are country business missions, country and regional press tours, wine companies and wine brands promotions, specialized exhibitions, tasting workshops, conferences, wine and spirits competitions.

Black Sea Winemaking Forum can also organize other types of activity to reach its goals.

Black Sea Winemaking Forum has its own brand logo, which may be used by the participants in their documentation and product labeling.

The Forum also develops among its participants an international expert evaluation network, which helps to enhance the quality of wine and spirituous beverages of vitivinicultural origin.

Forum participants consider the Black Sea Region as an area united not only by similar moderate resort style climate and geographical peculiarities, but also as a region unified by the traditional culture of winemaking and relevant cuisine.

The peoples of the Black Sea Region countries traditionally have friendly attitude towards each other, they respect the traditions of the production and consumption of wine and culture of the feasts, they have very good mutual knowledge of the regional ethnic cuisines. The Black Sea region is the most affordable and a favorite destination for the tourists from the neighboring countries, including the countries which do not have a direct access to the Black Sea.

Winemaking requires protection of geographical and cultural uniqueness, because it is closely tied to the place of origin of vine and wine production. The preservation of the traditions and the support of the authentic winemaking production are the basic aims of the Black Sea Winemaking Forum participants.
