Welcome to AWS
Welcome to the official website of the American Wine Society - the largest consumer-based wine organization in the US!

Now in its 47th year, the American Wine Society is the largest consumer based wine education organization in North America. Membership is open to anyone interested in wine and over 21 years of age.
