Reason #3 to Enter "The Nationals" - Acclaimed UK Wine Journalist Jamie Goode Joins the Judging Team

We are delighted announce that UK-based wine journalist Jamie Goode will be a part of our 2014 panel of judges that will be heading to Penticton, British Columbia to work the WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada 2014.

"We have thought long and hard about expanding our pool of judges outside of Canada and we believe the time is right. Jamie's experience in wine very much mirrors that of our existing tasting panel members and that should make for a seamless fit inside the tasting room. Of course another view, and one from Europe, should prove useful to those wineries engaged in the competition and hoping to expand their export horizons." - Anthony Gismondi, Co-Head Judge.

Jamie visited Ontario wine regions in 2013 during The International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration and will be visiting British Columbia wineries as part of the judges’ tour during his time at the Awards.

Dr. Goode completed a PhD in plant biology and worked as a science editor before switching careers to wine writing. He's a book author (The Science of Wine and Authentic Wine - both with University of California Press), writes a weekly wine column for a national newspaper (The Sunday Express), and blogs daily at, one of the most widely visited of all wine websites. An experienced wine judge, he's a panel chair for the International Wine Challenge each year, and has judged wine in France, Australia, Bulgaria, Hungary and Serbia. He tweets as @jamiegoode.
