The adventure that became Serendipity Winery began in the fall of 2005 when Judy Kingston embarked on a holiday wine tour of the Okanagan with a view to finding a retirement property in the south Okanagan. Instead, she found an old apple and cherry orchard in Naramata. This was the first Serendipitous moment, as she set out to convert the orchard to a vineyard with the goal of establishing a new boutique winery.
Since 2006 Judy has devoted her full time efforts to the Serendipity vineyard and winery. Her two adult children have each put in summers working in the vineyard.
The first harvest was in 2009 and of exceptional quality. The four wines were entered into four competitions, and won a total of 10 awards, including double gold at the 2011 San Francisco International Wine Competition. It was a tribute to the many hours of hard work and dedication that Judy put into the vineyard with the goal of producing quality over quantity. To add complexity and diversity to the wines, additional grapes have been purchased from local Okanagan growers who share the same commitment to quality.
The five wines that have currently been released for 2012 were all reviewed by John Schreiner, and all of them received a point score between 90-93.
Serendipity wines are now available in select wine stores and restaurants in Whistler, Vancouver, and the Okanagan Valley.
