9th International Cool Climate Wine Symposium

18th January 2016

What do Champagne, Riesling and Pinot Noir have in common? They are all produced in cooler climate winemaking regions.

Established in 1984, the International Cool Climate Wine Symposia focus on wine production in the cooler climate winemaking regions of the world and with England’s growing wine reputation, they will be hosting this years conference.

Over three days in May 2016, the globe’s leading winemakers and viticulturalists will meet with marketeers and others involved with producing and selling some of the world’s finest wines.

The viticultural, oenological and wine business aspects of these themes will be explored through keynote speakers, presentations, seminars, workshops, posters and tastings. Delegates will be updated on the latest developments, have the opportunity to discuss the key issues in their fields with their peers, and to meet with the leading suppliers to their industry.

So what does “cool climate” mean in relation to wine?

Cool and cold climate are often defined as where the weather both limits grape ripening and offers the threat of serious damage to the vine in the winter. What this means is that the vine grower and winemaker have to be even more savvy to produce the wonderfully elegant wines that are increasingly popular with consumers the world over.
