Judy Kingston

Owner


The story of Serendipity is, in many ways, the story of Judy Kingston. Judy grew up in Toronto, completed her undergrad in Math and Computers at Western University in London, Ontario, and her law degree at the University of Ottawa. She was also in the first graduating class to receive a degree in computer science at Western University.

Katie O'Kell

Second-in-Command, and Chief Grape Stomper

Katie was born and raised in Toronto and received her BSc in Biology at Hamilton’s McMaster University. After ruling out medical school, Katie was accepted into law school but had time off between her undergrad and the start of the next session, so she traveled to Naramata to assist her mom in the interim. She had already spent a few summers helping at the winery, so knew what she was getting into… almost. Katie ended up loving the work at the winery so much that she deferred her law school acceptance and has stayed on at Serendipity full time. Katie has recently completed a three-month stage at New Zealand’s ultra-modern Delegat Wine Estate, where she worked harvest for the 2016 vintage. Katie has completed her winemaking degree with UC Davis in California, and got 100% on her final exam. As a part owner with her mom at Serendipity, Katie spends most of her time in the cellar making wine, but also spends part of her day doing marketing and administration, helping Judy run the winery behind the scenes
