Serendipity Winery

"No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess." - Isaac Newton

Serendipity Winery is owned by Judy Kingston.

Since 2006, Judy has devoted her full time efforts to the Serendipity vineyard and winery.
Her two children have each put in summers working in the vineyard.
It is a family commitment, led by Judy as point person.

The adventure began in the fall of 2005 when Judy 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 Serendipity moment, as she set out to convert the orchard to a vineyard with the goal of establishing a new boutique winery.

Beginning in the spring of 2006, the property was completely re-landscaped to provide the optimum slope and orientation for the new vineyard. Judy selected the wine varietals for planting to match the micro climate and four distinct soil types on the property. In the spring of 2007, she planted eight acres of vines with Syrah and Merlot as the main reds, and Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc as the whites. Subsequently she has added to the vineyard with the additional planting of Syrah, Cabernet Franc and a little Malbec for blending. Two additional acres of Pinot Noir will be planted in 2011.

The first harvest was in 2009 and of exceptional quality. 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.
