European Association of Wine Economists​

A successfull PDO workshop in Tokaj


The EuAWE workshop in Tokaj on April 28-30, 2024 was a great success. 

We were pleased to exchange views with our Hungarian colleagues on the issue of PDOs and the mention of origin in the alcohol sector. This workshop follows on from the one held in Saragoza (Spain) in March 2023. It is part of a long-term project on appellations and their necessary evolution.

On behalf of the EuAWE Board, I would like to thank all the participants for the quality of their presentations. My special thanks go to the local organizers, Daniel Homolya and Peter Gal, who gave us an exceptional welcome (and the word is not overused) and enabled us to discover a wine region that is remarkable in every way. Daniel was a wonderful guide. I’d also like to thank Peter Molnar for his highly instructive talk on the history of the region and his welcome to the vineyard he manages, the beautiful Domaine Patricius.

EUAWE natural wine survey

The European Association of Wine Economists (EuAWE) is currently carrying out a European survey to understand the extent and roots of the natural wine phenomenon in Europe.

The survey is aimed at all European winegrowers, whether natural or not and is available in French, English, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Hungarian.

If you are a wine producer, please don’t hesitate to take 10 minutes (no more !) of your time to answer this anonymous questionnaire – and thus contribute to a better understanding of natural wine production and its perception by wine producers in Europe? Here is the link : https://lnkd.in/dWmbeh5C

Feel free to pass on this link to your network of wine producers in France and Europe to help us produce results that are as representative as possible.

If you have any questions about the survey or suggestions for improvement, please contact Magalie Dubois : magalie.dubois@u-bordeaux.fr

Thank you in advance for your collaboration !

20-21 march 2023 : European protected wine designations workshop

The EuAWE and VInCI SUDOE project are happy to present the draft programme of the comparativ analysis workshop. 

The goal of this workshop is to mobilize and involve economists to brainstorm and work on different research questions : Can we compare the structure and performance of wine regulations and appellations in different EU countries (FR, ES, IT, PT, …) to better understand the functioning and efficiency of their different models? How were these different systems created? What was (and is) the industrial organization of the wine industry behind them and how is it evolving thanks to the current appellation system? What is the relationship between the individual brands and the collective one that represents the PDO? Can we compare different appellation and regulation systems? Which indicators can be used to measure their performance? How should be the different systems be analyzed? 

These are some of the questions that could be investigated. More info on the news and event pages
