2020 International Cool Climate Wine Show cancelled.
An announcement from our President - Paul White
It is with great disappointment, that I have to inform you that the 20th International Cool Climate Wine Show, will not run in 2020. As you would be aware, the impact of the Corona Virus has meant no public events can take place. We reviewed all options open to us, including postponing the event until the latter half of the year. However, we, like many events, are left feeling very unsure about the possible need to postpone more than once. Therefore, cancellation was our best option.
We felt it was important to let our current entrants know about this decision prior to announcing it publicly. This has now been done.
The Executive team for the ICCWS Inc is still working extremely hard to assess the overall impact this will have on the International Cool Climate Wine Show overall. 2020 should have been our 20th show. Our reputation within the industry is strong and has been earnt through making sure we do things the right way. Once everything has been assessed, we will inform all past and present entrants, as well as the general public, of what the future holds heading towards 2021.
Thank you for your ongoing support and for your entries this year and for the ticket sales to our public events, that were doing so well. We are very disappointed not to have been able to allow your wines to compete or for our public events to go ahead.
The Executive and Committee of Management for the ICCWS Inc wish you all a safe, healthy and successful 2020. Please remember - wash your hands for 20 seconds, if you have to go out, uphold social distancing, and unless you really need to go out, please stay at home. Hopefully you have some lovely cool climate wines at home, to help you get through the weeks ahead.
Paul White - President
