'One of the most extraordinary wine publications of last year... an unexpected post-Christmas gift for grape geeks.'

Max Allen, The Australian, 04 January 2014

 

‘In an increasingly interconnected world wine market, evolving consumer demands, technologies, and climate have all contributed to large shifts in global patterns of production and consumption of wine. These shifting patterns of wine production and consumption have entailed changes in the vineyard in terms of total area planted, production practices, and the mix of grape varieties grown. In this book, for the first time, we have a detailed empirical picture, country by country and region by region within countries, of which varieties of grapes have been grown where, and how those varietal choices have changed over time. This statistical compendium will be directly useful for anyone interested in knowing about and understanding the changing patterns of production of wine and wine grapes around the world. It also will serve as an invaluable resource for economists and others who seek to analyze those patterns and their causes.’

Professor Julian Alston, Director of the Robert Mondavi Institute’s Center for Wine Economics, University of California, Davis

 

‘This new database charts exactly what varieties are grown in which regions around the world. Since the data sets are based on two broad census periods, in 2000 and 2010, readers can also follow major planting trends around the world during the first decade of this new century. This colossal trawl makes it the perfect complement to last year’s [2012] publication of Wine Grapes by the doughty [Jancis] Robinson, [Julia] Harding and [José] Vouillamoz.’

(Jefford on Monday: The Great Grape Census, 09 Dec 2013)

‘Kym Anderson is a pioneer in the study of the economics of wine, and this book contains the raw materials for others to do the same kind of extraordinary research.’

Professor Orley Ashenfelter, Princeton University, former President of the American Economic Association and former Editor of the Ameri­can Economic Review, and founder/author/publisher of the newsletter Liquid Assets
