Vancouver Amateur Winemaker's Association is a club of wine lovers and home winemakers who strive to create wines they can be proud of. The purpose of our club is to bring together in a friendly atmosphere people interested in the art of amateur winemaking to engage in related discussions, lectures, demonstrations and social events.


VAWA is....

a member driven organization which organizes the following events:

Our Association usually holds meetings at 8 pm on the second Thursday of each month at the Roma Hall located at 940 Ewen Ave, New Westminster, BC V3M 5C8. Click here to get directions with Google Maps. No meetings are held in the months of July and August.

Anyone interested in finding out more about us is welcome to attend a meeting as a guest. There is a door fee of approximately $10 for members and $15 for guests related to the cost of the evening's program.

Access for people with disabilities is available via an elevator from the underground parking. A member must be on hand to open the access door first. Please contact an executive member in advance of the meeting to arrange for this by emailing info@vawa.net.

Details of the formal organization of the club can be found in the VAWA Constitution.

New members are always welcome and accepted regardless of their level of winemaking experience. The VAWA annual membership fee is $35 for individuals or $50 for couples. In addition, for new members, there is a one-time charge of $10 for creating your name badge. Please print out the Membership Application, fill it in and bring it to a regular meeting together with your cheque for the appropriate amount.
