Welcome to The South African Wine Society (SAWS)
The South African Wine Society, now in its 20th year, is a non-profit wine tasting club focused on promoting knowledge about and access to South African wines in Canada. This is achieved by hosting informative wine tastings, relaxed social; dinners and providing members with an opportunity to savour wines which are readily available, as well as vintage collections from our carefully stocked cellar.
Why not join the Society and embark on a journey discovering the wines and foods of remarkable South Africa and its leading wine producing regions? Learn about our Wine Cellar – a hidden member benefit.
Amici dell’Enotria and the South African Wine Society have combined forces to bring you a head to head competition of their respective wines. You alone will be the judge of which gave you the most pleasure.
To make the competition fair, all wines will be tasted “blind”. You will be asked to rank them according to your taste buds. That will give you a Personal Ranking. Then, you and your table companions will add up the results and come up with a Table Ranking. Following that, a Room Ranking will be tabulated. This is not intended to decide “right and wrong”. It simply shows whether your tastes are similar or different from that of your companions.
Oh yes, there is one more thing. The wines will be selected in three categories: ranging up to $15, $25 and $35. Remember, the wines will be served blind and in random order. Your palate, not your wallet or your heritage, will determine your ranking. Oh the horror if your preference is an inexpensive Italian wine. Will you ever live it down?
Once the scores are in, we will have a buffet dinner that is intended to tantalize taste buds. A little more wine will be available with the dinner and dessert.
