Our growing membership of accredited wine judges includes men and women from the Ontario communities of Toronto, Ottawa, London, Kitchener, Prince Edward County and New York as well as certified judges in Quebec and Nova Scotia. Our accredited WJC judges are in demand across Canada and the U.S., where their skills contribute to the growing knowledge of wine and winemaking.
Our members participate in commercial wine trade events and some have gone on to start their own wineries, become wine importers or work at other levels in the wine industry. Most members are experienced winemakers, many amassing considerable awards in Canada and internationally. Some are also wine writers for newspapers or periodicals.
