This Palgrave Handbook (PDF) provides the first international comparative study into the efficiency of the industrial organization of the global wine industry. Looking at numerous important vineyards of the main wine countries, the contributors evaluate differences in implementation and articulation of three main stages: grape production, winemaking, and distribution (marketing, selling, and logistics). By inspecting regulations, organization theory, vertical integration, and industry organizational efficiency, up to date strategies in the sector are given and appraised. Which models are the most efficient? What are the most related factors for optimal performance? Should different models co-exist within the wine countries for worldwide success? How do reputation and governance impact the industry?
This complete volume is essential reading for researchers, students, and professionals in the wine industry.
