The International Food Wine & Travel Writers Association (IFWTWA) is a global network of journalists who cover the hospitality and lifestyle fields, and the people who promote them.
It was formed in 1981 in California. It was conceptualized, based on a Paris group who reviewed restaurants starting in the 50s.
IFWTWA's members cover a broad spectrum of travel destination attractions such as active and passive adventure activities, ecology, historical features, culture, fairs, festivals and special events. Many of its members’ writing niches include food and wine or the drink of the region as well as the culture and history.
