Annual Database of Global Wine Markets, 1835 to 2018
by Kym Anderson and Vicente Pinilla (with the assistance of A.J. Holmes), November 2017, revised and updated January 2020
The motivation to assemble these historical data was to learn more about wine’s globalization. Some of the world’s leading wine economists and historians have contributed to and drawn on this database to examine national wine market developments before, during and in between the 19th century and current waves of globalization. Their initial analyses cover all key wine-producing and wine-consuming countries using a common methodology to explain long-term trends and cycles in national wine production, consumption, and trade. Those analytical narratives are available in Wine Globalization: A New Comparative History, edited by Kym Anderson and Vicente Pinilla (Cambridge University Press, January 2018), available at online bookstores and here.
The contributors to that volume and this underlying database are Julian M. Alston, Willem Boshoff, Jean-Michel Chevet, Alessandro Corsi, Giovanni Federico, Eva Fernández, William Foster, Johan Fourie, Eric Giraud-Héraud, Pedro Lains, James T. Lapsley, Charles C. Ludington, Ana Maria Mateu, Lewis S. McLean, Pablo Martinelli, Oscar Melo, Giulia Meloni, Eugenio Pomarici, Olena Sambucci, Roberta Sardone, Steve Stein, Karl Storchmann, Daniel A. Sumner, Johan Swinnen, Nick Vink and Gavin Williams.
