About The Show

The 25th National Cool Climate Wine Show will be held from 19th August to 23rd August 2024.

The National Cool Climate Wine Show (NCCWS) is celebrating a very cool 25 years, recieving entries from cool climate wine producing regions across Australia.

The National Cool Climate Wine Show held in Bathurst is the largest cool climate specific event of its kind in Australia. Supported by the huge entry portfolio hence sustaining this title over the event lifetime, this event has become a principal Australian cool climate wine show since its conception in 1998, one of the largest premium wine shows held inland from a capital city.

Bathurst, only two and a half hours west of Sydney, is well known for its distinct seasons. As an emerging wine area you will discover cellar doors and vineyards producing a rich diversity of cool climate wines, many of them prestigious award winners. They are located in the hills and valleys surrounding Australia’s oldest inland settlement, and even on the slopes of the iconic Mount  Panorama Racing Circuit with vineyards at elevations ranging from 700 to over 1000 metres.

With 36 classes, from noble varieties to upcoming grape varieties, incorporating and welcoming boutique and large wine making companies, with a primary focus to provide benchmarking opportunities and to gain valuable feedback from well-respected industry judges on cool climate specific wines.

We celebrate various objectives;

1) Benchmarking opportunities providing world class feedback for all cool climate wine producers – large and small, to compare their offerings in a competitive marketplace.

2) Highlighting and raising the profile of all cool climate growing regions across Australia, with the benefits of more exposure and purchasing such wines.
