Abstract: Although the importance of local/regional factors in firms' international competitiveness has been increasingly recognised, few studies have investigated the relationship between clusters and the internationalisation process of clustered firms. This theme assumes special relevance for industries that are predominantly organised in territorial agglomerations, or clusters, as is the case of the wine industry. The objective of this paper is to identify the resources generated by the cluster and analyse their influence in the companies' internationalisation process. A case study was carried out on two wine clusters: Provence, in Southern France, and Serra Ga├║cha, in Southern Brazil. The resource-based theory provides the underlying analytical framework. Both theoretical and practical implications of the results are discussed.
