What is cool climate wine?

The term is still indefinite.
For the sake of CCWA competition we accept all the wines produced in EU climate zones A and B plus Switzerland, and will be happy to welcome wines from all other wine regions, subregions or districts that may prove to fulfill at least one of the following demands: 
- less than 2650 GDD in ⁰F units (15 April-15 October NH)

 

If you're there,

don't check your GDD
