International Cool Climate Wine Symposium 2022

July 17 to 21, 2022


Update: December 11, 2020
International Cool Climate Wine Symposium postponed to 2022


The International Cool Climate Wine Symposium (ICCWS) has been postponed to July 17 to 21, 2022.

The symposium, which will now be referred to as ICCWS 2022, will be hosted at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. It is being organized by Brock’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture (CCOVI) alongside its research and industry partners across Canada.

In light of continued uncertainty and travel restrictions, the symposium’s advisory committee has opted to further postpone to the summer of 2022, ensuring that all delegates can safely enjoy the symposium to its full potential.

Although many conferences have moved to digital formats in the wake of the pandemic, ICCWS 2022 organizers stressed that the spirit of the symposium relies on the opportunity to come together in-person, and looks forward to welcomiung the world to Canada in 2022.

Brock has developed a five-stage response to and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic to guide occupancy and delivery of services (including the ICCWS) on campus. This plan is informed by public health and government recommendations and guidelines with the health and safety of students, faculty, staff and the community as the highest priority. ICCWS organizers are using this response to guide decision-making in regard to all symposium activities. The university is currently in Brock Stage 3 and will need to be in Brock Stage 5 to hold the ICCWS in-person.

Please contact with any questions regarding this postponement and how it pertains to sponsorship, registration, speaking commitments and accommodations. If you have previously registered for ICCWS and currently hold a credit, there is no need to re-register for the conference should you wish to carry over your registration.

Please continue to monitor this website and Brock’s Coronavirus information webpages, subscribe to the ICCWS mailing list and follow ICCWS 2022 on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for more updates as they become available.
