Abstract: This work presents a research proposal on consumers of wine in Mexico. The research will focus on the impact of brand attributes on the buying behaviour of consumers in Mexico. There is a paucity of studies on wine branding and generally on place of origin branding typically associated with wine marketing with reference to Mexico. The extension of the advances of wine research to this country will contribute to identifying key marketing drivers in symbolic markets and the effectiveness of destination branding amid product and brand stimuli interference.
Keywords: place of origin branding; wine attributes; Mexican consumers; critical brand elements; purchasing behaviour; Mexico; wine branding; wine marketing; destination branding.
