Celebrating the County’s World-Class Wines

By Sarah Smith, VisitKingston.ca

"Last year, a competitive event saw internationally-renowned champions go head-to-head against Canadian up-and-comers in a bid for supremacy. But the first-ever Judgement of Kingston was no sporting match; it was a celebration of our region’s achievements in the world of wine. The event is based on the famous “Judgment of Paris” blind tasting that took place in 1976, which compared acclaimed French wines against the products of up-and-coming California wineries. The Paris tasting became the subject of the 2008 comedy/drama film Bottle Shock, which in turn inspired some Kingston residents to recreate their own version of the event."


A big thanks to all of our sponsors for supporting Kingston’s premiere wine tasting event!
