Wine has many faces. It’s sometimes difficult to compare wines of most diverse grapes, terroirs or climates. Is it fair to taste – say – northernmost European Merlots next to their bombastic counterparts from Australia? We think it isn't. We are cool climate wine geeks that appreciate elegance, zestiness and fresh fruit aromas in our glasses. We think it's time to bring together all the best wines made of varieties able to reach perfection in unfavourable conditions of Northern Europe and America as well as southernmost parts of New World. Are you with us? Why don't you send us your best samples?
The contest is aimed specifically at producers of cool climate wines. This exclusivity will allow the jury to concentrate on the unique qualities of the wines, which may have been overlooked at those wine competitions that do not specialize in this category.
