Welcome to our website !
Winemaking is a fun, rewarding & sociable hobby whether you’re making wine from grapes or starting out with a kit at home or at a U-Vint or Brew on Premise facility. At the end of the day, our goal is to enjoy a glass of good wine with like-minded friends. Can it get any better?
Amateur Winemakers of Ontario is an association of winemaking clubs located in Ontario, Canada. For people who are not a member of a club we invite them to join as Members At Large so we can provide them with the benefits of membership and the ability to compete in our annual competition.
Our Annual competition is the largest amateur wine competition in Canada. It’s a great way to obtain an independent evaluation, by trained judges, of your wine which helps to improve your winemaking skills.
