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.
Mark Carmichael-Green is now in his 12th vintage at The High Road Winery. Originally, a nature conservation student at Stellenbosch, he migrated to Elsenburg. "I did horses for a few days, but the wine guys seemed to be having much more fun, so winemaking was for me." Mark graciously uses his experienced approach to making fine quality wines. To coin the apt phrase from his vocabulary, which says it all, "Don't plant vines for grapes, but for the brilliance that can be achieved with wine."
Christopher Boland has many years of experience in the art of combining wine and food in many creative forms and has prepared a menu combined with excellent South African wines, taking your senses on a fascinating adventure of flavours and combinations
