Although we encourage everyone to attend the events and enjoy and
learn about the wines of Australia, some events have limited
capacity or other considerations that require that they be

Interesting Venues & Experiences
The AWS provides the opportunity to savour the wines of Australia
in a variety of social and comfortable environments. From the black-tie
dinner in January, to cruising on the Rideau Canal in the spring sun,
to participating in an "Old World Wines" vs. "New World Wines" taste-off
with delightful morsels, you can be assured of great wine and food in a
variety of settings. A great way to meet some interesting people and to
make some new friends.
