Brief: The Wine Industry
The wine industry includes red wine and white wine. Vines were first planted in the Middle East before 4,000 BC. Through vine plantation and wine production, wine trade emerged in Greece, Crete, Phoenicia and Egypt and spread widely in Mediterranean. Wine industry rapidly developed with the help of the Catholic churches in The Middle Ages. In seventeenth century, new techniques and innovations were turned up to improve the wine to satisfy the globalization and colonization. Now the geographic scope of competition ranges from Old World, which are European countries, to the New World, which are North America, South America and South Africa.
In this industry, buyers and suppliers are from all over the world and the substitute includes water, coffee and tea. As the reading material emphasized that competition should include five forces, which are profits, customers, suppliers, potential entrants and substitute products. The basis of competitive advantage is the quality of wine. And it has become a global industry.
French firms dominated this industry in the past for several reasons: * In the time of Roman Empire, the viticulture and wine production were introduced to Provence and moved further to the inland. * After The Middle Ages, the wine trade in Bordeaux region became prosperous because of the large shipments of wine exported to Great Britain. * In the 1600s, French producer applied new techniques to plant vine and he mastered art of maturing and improving wine. Also, the replacement of glass wine bottles sealed with cork made wine taste much better.
The reasons that French dominance now being threatened by new world producers:
To the France itself: * The epidemic of phylloxera in the 1860s, which was cured in the 1870s. * Overproduction and fraud among the French producers. * Regulations limited wine from…...

The Wine Industry of Chile

...Part One: The Chile Wine Industry The Chilean wine industry has experienced various transformations over the past 30 years – its quality revolution led by the complete technological renovation during the 1980s, the export boom of the 1990s, and the new terror developments during the 2000 decade. This transformation has allowed a new generation of talented viticulturists and winemakers to capitalize on Chile’s viticultural paradise and to produce World Class Wines of unique character and personality. Chile is the world’s eighth largest wine producer and the fifth largest exporter, reaching a market share of 8% by volume of the global international wine market at the close of 2010. However, and most importantly, Chile exports 70% of its wine production, making it the world’s most globalized wine industry, with great flexibility, innovation and a long-term commitment to quality and service. With 150 destination countries and 1.5 billion consumers for each year, Chilean wines are positioned as the country’s most emblematic and best known world ambassador. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Chileans adopted advanced technology and invested in new machinery for optimizing the winemaking process in the field. The winemaker offered an innovative higher-quality product that was conducive to the development of new wine varieties. Later producers also perfected their wine cellars and invested in better labels and packing, such as boxes, bottles and cartons, that were more attractive......

Vincor and the Wine Industry

...The Wine Industry and Vincor Vincor International Inc. is in the business of selling premium wine to discerning wine drinkers. The company relies on its firm resources and capabilities from which it derives its distinctive competencies. These include the ability to produce market and distribute premium New World wines to a growing market of customers around the world. The total estimated world market is worth approximately $190 billion dollars (U.S.). Vincor’s strategy is based on its distinctive competencies (such as world renowned wine making experience, vineyard development and ownership, and the ice wine product/brand) and centres on an acquisition and takeover formula (sometimes with a joint venture component). The company believes that in a highly fragmented wine industry the only companies that are going to survive, grow and maintain a competitive advantage are those that can rationalize their cost structures, achieve economies of scale and control their distribution channels effectively. Synergies in marketing, sales forces, administration and other overhead factors can drive down per unit costs and make Vincor more efficient. By lowering its cost structure, Vincor can pass lower costs to consumers and gain market share in a global market place. Vincor has surmised that the best way to do this is expand, through a combination of equity and debt financing to take over competitors, whenever there is a good “strategic fit.” The industry in which Vincor......

Chilean Wine Industry

...Investment Attractiveness of the Chilean Wine Industry 1. Introduction Over the past 30 years saw major transformations within the Chilean wine industry, this transformation allowed many of the talented Chilean winemakers on this unique opportunity to produce world class wine with its own unique personality and character. Chile currently is one of the leading nations in the global in the wine industry, currently ranked at 8th as the world’s largest wine producer and ranked 5th as the largest wine exporter. Chile exports a massive 70% from its own wine production making Chile the world’s most globalised wine industry. Even with the enjoyed success by the nation, Chilean wines find themselves facing huge competition globally in different markets as the wines produced in Chile sells at a relatively low average price therefor directly affecting the profit levels in return. (Emeraldinsight, 2010) 2. Factor Conditions As of 2011, Chilean vineyards have been facing shortage of filed workers as most employees are migrating to construction, agriculture director Santa Rita is quoted saying “between 15% and 20% fewer workers now than two years ago” Working in vineyards is not a preferable profession to the locals anymore as they end up working eight hours more just to get the minim wage. (MecrcoPress, 2011) This means finding field workers for the vineyards will prove difficult unless the company is prepared to pay the minimum wage. 2.1 The unemployment rates in......

Indian Wine Industry

...of Indian Wine Persian conquerors brought grape vines to India nearly 2500 years ago; wine consumption is first mentioned in a text on statecraft written about 300 b.c.  Wine was a beverage for elites, not the masses (who apparently wanted stronger stuff), and lived a shadowy existence that continues today due to concerns about alcohol consumption. The influence of British colonizers contributed to the growth of Indian wine production in the 19th century, before the scourge of phylloxera hit India’s vineyards in the 1890s with predictable results. Table grapes are a major crop in India and wine grapes are grown in several regions, generally at altitudes of 200m – 800m, although vineyards at 1000m exist in Kashmir. Growing conditions are surprisingly good using viticulture practices that take humidity and rainfall patterns into account (harvest must be complete before the monsoon). Two crops per year are common. Since independence in 1947, wine has been caught in a crossfire in India. On one hand, it is a heavily controlled substance.  Article 47 of the constitution makes it a function of the state to discourage alcohol consumption (Gandhi and some other early leaders were teetotallers), so wine imports are highly taxed and advertising is forbidden. Individual state governments within India tax and regulate wine sales much as in the United States, creating a distributional crazy quilt. At the same time, however, some state governments promote viticulture and wine making......

Tunisian Wine Industry

...The Tunisian Wine industry In 2013 the world wine consumption stood at 238.7 mhl, this was a decrease of 2.5 mhl in comparison to 2012. “The global wine industry has seen an excess of 600mn unit cases (almost ¼ of global consumption) in 2004, reduce to just 1m unit cases in 2012” (The Global Wine Industry, 2013). History of wine in Tunisia There are a lot of comparisons made between new world wines and old world wines. When discussing old world, this refers to wines made in countries that are considered the birthplaces of wine. Some of the countries that are Old World include: France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Austria, Greece, Lebanon, Israel, Croatia, Hungary and Switzerland. New world include the following countries U.S., New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, Australia and South Africa. In 1881, the French conquered Tunisia, and brought along knowledgeable and experienced wine makers. After this large scale wine production began in the country. Many years after, Tunisia gained independence and although the wine production continued, a lack of expertise caused production to decrease (Tunisia tours, 2014). The climate in Tunisia is significantly influenced by the Mediterranean. The winters are wet and the summers are dry, which creates a prosperous environment for wine making. The type of grape variety that are planted in Tunisia are also hugely influenced by the French involvement. Market Entry Modes There are certain factors that influence foreign entry modes.......

Mondavi and the Wine Industry

...The global wine industry is divided in two areas, which are the Old World Countries and the New World Countries. The Old World countries are those located in Europe, while the New World Countries are Australia, United States, Chile, and South Africa. During the past few decades, global consumption of wine had been increasing. While the demand of premium wines was increasing, the consumption of inexpensive wine was decreasing. In Europe, families owned small vineyards and most of them produced wine for their own consumption. On the other hand, in the New World, larger firms owned wineries and competition was strong. I will use Porter’s Five Forces to analyze the global wine industry. Threat of New Entrants: Low; Entry Barriers: High (-) I would say that in the global wine industry, the threat of new entrants is low and the barriers to entry are high. This is due to the fact that the acquisition of new land and labor to produce wine requires a large amount of capital. Known brands spend a large amount of money on technology, innovation, and advertising, so it would be hard for independent wineries to start their own production, especially in New World countries and be profitable. Additionally, price per acre in the United States is really high, and a new piece of land takes several years to produce revenue. Also, the wine industry is already a mature one and consumers have their preferred brands of high quality wine, therefore obtaining a large share in the market......

Spanish Wine Industry

...Marieshka Barton Wines of Spain Prof. Newton June 15, 2015 Spanish Wine Marketing and Sales Sonoma State University’s Wines of Spain 2015 summer class introduced students to Northern Spain’s prestigious Penedès, Priorat, and Rioja wine regions. Production and marketing professionals from eight wineries hosted our student group and provided facility tours and insights on production, marketing, and exporting. This paper focuses on Northern Spain’s wine industry’s legal regulations, tourism, stewardship, communications, and exports through the lens of wine business marketing. The paper concludes with marketing recommendations relevant to new world (USA, Canada, and Australia) markets. History First, a brief introduction to Spain’s wine history is provided to differentiate Spain from its global competitors and set the context for further analysis. As an “old world” wine culture, Spain has a rich wine history beginning with Phoenician tribes and industrious Romans. Unfortunately, Spain’s nascent wine industry was disrupted due to Islamic rule followed by civil and global wars. In the late 1800’s, French winemakers revolutionized Spain’s weak wine industry. France’s Phylloxera tragedy brought an exodus of French winemakers over the Pyrenees seeking work. By the time Phylloxera reached Spain, viticulturists where already grafting native vines onto......

Wine Industry

...Me Details The American wine industry is a stable and present market in the United States with room to grow. The wine industry began with the first settlers and has persevered for centuries. There are three classifications of wine: Red, White, and Blush, and table wine (a wine containing 7% to14% alcohol traditionally consumed with food) is the most popular and fastest-growing type of wine consumed. Even though wine is produced virtually everywhere in the U.S. the wine producers in California have the largest economic impact of $30 billion. Wine sales have risen in the last ten years from 11.7 billion dollars to 19 billion dollars. The Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms division of the Internal Revenue Service, at 8%, which is around $1.07 per gallon, heavily taxes these sales. Technological impacts have allowed winemakers to help control the quality of the wine from the vine to the liquor store. The wine industry contains high barriers to entry due to high costs of land and building manufacturing facilities. Product differentiation is quite vast, being able to make several different types of wine varieties. The value of the wine varies year to year and is often set by the opinions of a few wine experts. The economies of scale in the wine industry have the greatest impact on the cost of land for grape growing. This because the type of land needed to produce quality wine is limited in the United States. This provides an advantage to existing wine producers already having......

Transformation of Us Wine Industry

...That Transformed the U.S. Wine Industry For the last ten years, Blue Ocean Strategy has challenged business leaders to explore uncontested marketplaces -- or what we call "blue oceans." But this strategy goes beyond theory: It provides a set of methodologies and tools that can help managers pursue value innovation systematically and make blue oceans attainable for all aspiring organizations and individuals. Take, for instance, the wine industry. Related: The Cloud-Based Startup Making Waves in Wine Country Historically, the industry has proudly promoted wine as a refined beverage with a long history and tradition. This has alienated a large portion of consumers who have viewed wine as intimidating and pretentious. Alternatives -- beer, spirits and ready-to-drink cocktails -- have captured three times as many U.S. consumer-alcohol sales. The Australian winery Casella Wines addressed these problems with a new strategy that transformed the market, but not by competing on traditional factors. Instead, Casella looked to beer and ready-to-drink cocktails and created Yellow Tail, a fun and easy-to-drink nontraditional wine brand. Yellow Tail was designed to embody the characteristics of Australia's culture: bold, laid back, fun and adventurous. Yellow Tail aimed to represent a leap in value that appealed to a broad cross-section of alcohol beverage consumers. Casella Wines’ success with Yellow Tail was not by luck. Finding that many Americans, too, saw wine as a turnoff, the winery......
