The International Cool Climate Wine Show was established in 2000 by the Red Hill Agricultural and Horticultural Society on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. The region is one of Australia’s foremost cool climate regions, and the show committee wanted to advance the benchmarking of cool climate wines by inviting entries from other leading regions internationally. It is now the leading event on the Peninsula, bringing an international and domestic spotlight on the region as a destination for cool climate wines. The show welcomes entrants from all over the world.
The International Cool Climate Wine Show Committee defines ‘Cool Climate’ to being wines made from grapes grown either: South of latitude 37.5 degrees South, or North of latitude 37.5 degrees North, or from a property in the Southern or Northern Hemisphere which has an average January/July (as applicable) temperature below 19.5 degrees Celcius, as confirmed by the nearest Bureau of Meteorology site, or a vineyard site above 400m in altitude.
