All ‘No Shows’ will be charged. Contact the Assistant Treasurer, Treasurer, or the President to cancel.

Moderation and Liability

The PWS advocates thoughtful moderation whenever you taste wine. The PWS expects that you will bring your good judgment along to events and will exercise intelligent restraint when deciding which and how much of the wine you will taste at a PWS event. No one under 21 years of age will be admitted to an event. Each time you attend a PWS event, you are required to sign a release prior to the event. Remember, you choose to attend a PWS event to learn more about fine wine. The PWS is run by volunteers and is a not-for-profit corporation whose aim is to help members learn more about fine wine. Neither the Wine Society nor the volunteers accept any responsibility for any of your actions before, during, or after a PWS event.
