The International Cool Climate Wine Show was established in 2000 on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, by a group of like minded people, from different local groups and backgrounds.
This region is one of Australia’s foremost cool climate regions, and the ICCWS committee wanted to advance the bench-marking of cool climate wines by inviting entries from other leading regions internationally.
On 1st October 2018, the International Cool Climate Wine Show became an independent, not-for-profit entity - ICCWS Inc. This was a very exciting step in the shows history and a wonderful step forward for its future.
The ICCWS is a leading event on the Peninsula, which brings an international and domestic focus on the region as a destination for cool climate wines. We welcome entrants from all over the world and we love the fact that we get to promote the Mornington Peninsula and our cool climate wine region to them.
