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.
Can you believe this? The Australian Wine Society has joined with SAWS to bring you a Greek dinner at AVLI on Danforth near Chester. Opa!!
We are always looking for ways to tantalize the taste buds. This time, a mix of Australian and South African wines has been selected to match the unique flavors of the Greek cuisine.
AVLI Restaurant has been delighting the neighborhood with authentic Greek cuisine for decades. Chef Lambros learned his culinary skills back home in Greece. Expect a comfortable dining experience with some culinary surprises on our menu.
As they say on the Food Channel TV show, “You Gotta Eat Here”. Try it. We hope that you like it. This event WILL sell out quickly. You must book promptly in order to get a seat.
Greek appetizers served with grilled pita
Taramosalata (Fish roe mixed with either bread crumbs or mashed potato, and lemon juice, vinegar and olive oil.)

Lamb Kleftiko (slow cooked lamb that remains totally succulent and literally falls off the bone)
