 G'day and Kia Ora!

ANZWS Ottawa is a not-for-profit organization devoted to the enjoyment of the wines of Australia and New Zealand. Through exposure to, and education about the wines and wine regions of these great countries, the Society seeks to encourage, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, a greater awareness of the wine varietals, the diversity and the styles of Aussie and Kiwi wines.

 The Great New Zealand Wine Tiki Tour - May 9 2016


Kia Ora!

Kiwis love setting off on a Tiki Tour. It's a trip where you take the scenic route, sidetrack a little, linger and experience new things. This year, we invite you to join us on the Great New Zealand Wine Tiki Tour which will be held in Vancouver, Ottawa and Toronto. Look for an evening of meandering, digressing, indulging and awakening the senses.

Whatever your preferences, chances are there is a New Zealand wine to suit your palate.

All wines presented at this event are certified by Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand. All evening portions of these wine events will have a silent auction benefiting charity.

Be part of this year's 7th annual Sauvignon Blanc Day on May 6 2016 as New Zealand will be leading the charge and holding events across the world to celebrate the variety that awoke the world- an online global social media wine tasting.

Restaurants, retailers and consumers - along with global wine brands - will be celebrating Sauvignon Blanc for the day and participating in the Twitter conversation by using the “hashtag” #SauvBlanc. If you live in Ontario or British Columbia- join in the celebration on Instagram for a chance to win a gift certificate to your local wine store. (Please see the website for more details.)

Buy tickets (at $5 off!) and get more details here.
