An announcement about the Judgement of Kingston 2020

We are pleased to announce the Judgement of Kingston 2020 will take place although, mindful of the present public health situation, this year’s event will not be open to the public.

However, a professional blind-tasting of six chardonnays from The County and the Niagara will take place and the results will be posted on-line at

On behalf of the JoK team, Lubomyr Luciuk said:

“We remain committed to showcasing great wines from The County, comparing them with fine wines from other wine-producing areas and promoting regional tourism. We also want to continue using the JoK event to raise funds for charities while supporting a wine-making community that has experienced serious economic losses as a result of the pandemic. Hopefully, we’ll return to the way JoK was, in 2021. In the meantime please stay safe and always be of good cheer.”

Celebrating the County’s World-Class Wines

Join us for the annual Judgement of Kingston as we compare some of the finest wines made in "The County" with great wines from other Canadian and international winemaking regions, with all proceeds from the JoK silent auction going to support local and regional charities.


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