Join AWS

Become a Member

Join the Australian Wine Society of Toronto for only $35 per year, or $60 for two people living at the same address. For a $60.00 Membership, you can bring any guest to an event at the member price that typically has a differential of $10.00 or more. Click here to join and pay online using PayPal or a credit card. Or, if you prefer to mail it in, click here to open or download the membership form, then print and send the completed and signed form with your payment to the address on the form. Our membership year runs from July 1st to June 30th, meaning that your membership ends in the June immediately following the date that you joined, regardless of the month in which you joined.  All membership fees are non-refundable.  Why join? Here's the benefits that members enjoy:


The usual member discount per event is $10-12, so you only need to attend four events in an entire year before your membership pays for itself — just three events for a double membership. In fact, if you attended all events in a given year, you can save almost $100 as a member. Some non-AWS wine events also provide a discount for AWS members, so you will have extra savings on these events as well.

Member-Only Events

Although most of our events have open registration to non-members in order to encourage people to try out the AWS, some events can be limited to members and their guests on special occasions.

Advance Event Notice

We send out early event notices by email to members, so they are aware of events that might sell out before they are advertised on our website. We also send notices and invitations to non-AWS events.
