The ICCWS is recognised as one of Australia’s foremost show for inspirational cool climate wines. Many of them are from smaller vineyards where grapes are handpicked and wines handcrafted by winemakers with a passion for exploring terroir and the true expression of the grape.Each year the ICCWS attracts more than 600 wines from around the world, in 25 competition classes, including sparkling wines, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. The wines are judged by highly credentialed and experienced judges.For winemakers, this is an opportunity to benchmark in a show where "like is judged against like"; where elegant wines with restrained fruit are seen at their best; and where diversity is encouraged and rewarded. For fine wine retailers, restaurateurs, sommeliers, wine writers, wine media, wine educators, wine students and wine enthusiasts, here is an opportunity to taste an extraordinary breadth and depth of cool climate wines, which gives great exposure and opportunities for marketing and promotion, of the wines entered.The ICCWS organisers and the Red Hill Agricultural and Horticultural Society, look forward to welcoming you to the 2018 Show.
