Special Issue on: "Wine Business and Globalisation"

Guest Editors:

Wine production and consumption has traditionally been associated with Euro-Mediterranean countries. In the last decades, the global wine scenario has been undergoing a radical change due to the entrance of non-traditional producing and consuming countries. These changes have given rise to a renewed structure of the global wine business and new competition rules that challenges both Old and New producing countries.

This special issue is devoted to the wine business and globalisation and in particular focusing on issues that are arising in terms of strengths and weaknesses, threats and opportunities for new and existing companies. It seeks papers that will contribute to the understanding of developments in this area.
