Evoking the famous "Judgement of Paris" (1976) that saw American wines compete successfully against those of France, an event that turned the wine world upside down (see the film Bottle Shock), this blind tasting competition will witness some of the best wines of Prince Edward County go up against some greats from California. In our first-ever "Judgement of Kingston" we are featuring four Prince Edward County versus three California Chardonnays.
Only a limited number of tickets are available at $85 each. They are on sale now by email above or at the Visitor Information Centre, across from City Hall, in Kingston, Ontario.
We start the event with a briefing on what to look for in a great Chardonnay by Kingston's own Dr. Kim Meathrel, owner of Decantress Wine and Spirits Education.
All participants will be served a 75 mL (2.5 oz) sample of each of the seven wines being poured in this competition, with water and crackers to cleanse the palate between tastings. Participants will have a score card, allowing you to record observations and compare your rank ordering with those of the judges. At the end of the event, tasting notes and additional information about each of the seven wines will be made available.
Any profit from the event will be donated to local charities.
