The Forum pays a special attention to the establishment of a special international system of independent ratings for wine products of companies-participants.

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, the support of the authentic winemaking production is the basic aim of the Black Sea Winemaking Forum participants.
