The Ontario Wine Society (OWS) is a not-for-profit group of wine enthusiasts operated largely through volunteer time. The Society was formed in 1991 and has continued to provide its members with engaging and varied ways to discover, appreciate and support local wines. The events and trips are considered outstanding value for money by its members. The Society’s efforts are supported by the wineries of Ontario and Wine Country Ontario. The OWS caters to any Ontario wine lover 19+.


Tastings are held nearly every month, where an Ontario winery presents their portfolio to the group and each wine is paired with hors d'oeuvres. Afterwards, there is an opportunity to purchase wines directly from the winery. The Chapter’s home is Michael's on the Thames while smaller, more intimate events are hosted at a handful of small restaurants around the city.
