Another important event on the Australian wine calendar has fallen victim to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Australian Pinot Noir Challenge 2020, scheduled for the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, has been cancelled for this year, due to the ongoing uncertainty around the coronavirus. The event was scheduled for September 28-29.
Paringa Estate’s Lindsay McCall, the event chair, said: “The committee has discussed the restrictions on travel and challenges surrounding hosting a national event at this time, and with unknowns still circling we cannot proceed with the event in 2020.
“With a fantastic result in 2019, maintaining the momentum to see representation from all pinot noir regions across the country is a priority.
"We are extremely proud of the showcase event the Pinot Noir Challenge has become and are looking forward to launching a strong campaign in 2021. Good things come to those who wait.”
