The society was founded by Anton Massel a former oenologist who decided he wanted to give wine tasting a wider audience and in 1992 formed the Costa Blanca Wine Society.
A constitution was drawn up which, after several false starts, was signed on the 24th October 2000 and registered with the authorities. That is still our constitution today. Articles 4 and 5 of the constitution set out the objectives and activities of the Society which can be summarised as: increasing knowledge and appreciation of Spanish wines through the conduct of meetings, tastings and visits to wine producing centres. The Society is organised to meet these objectives.
