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 :

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 :

Thank you in advance for your collaboration !

20-21 March 2023 : The European protected wine designations. A comparative analysis workshop

The goal of this call is to mobilize and involve economists to brainstorm and work on the following 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.





The workshop is scheduled for March 20-21, 2023 in Zaragoza and will be organized under the umbrella of the VINCI Project (Interreg-Sudoe) with the collaboration of the EuAWE and the Instituto Agroalimentario de Aragón (Universidad de Zaragoza-CITA).

Call for paper : Sustainable Wine Industry and Wine Economics

Guest editor : Jean-Marie Cardebat

In a context of crisis in the wine market, organic, natural and biodynamic wines continue to sell more and gain market share. Is the future of the wine sector intimately linked to its sustainability? This is the question that this Special Issue aims to answer.

What are the major journals for wine economists? Which ones are the most influential?

A communication by Jean-François Outreville, Lara Agnoli and Eric Le Fur

A survey for a peer evaluation of journals by wine economists was launched on June 19 this year. The information and link to the survey was sent to 440 valid email addresses of academic researchers who participated at recent annual meetings of the American Association of Wine Economics (AAWE), the European Association of Wine Economists (EuAWE) and the Academy of Wine Business Research (AWBR). Respondents were also asked to indicate those journals they currently have an association as a reviewer or previous author.

The objective of this survey is to present different approaches to list the best journals that researchers in the field of wine economics care about or value the most for their publications. This is an attempt to offer more than yet another journal ranking. This exercise is of potential merit for the field of wine economics and those active within it, especially young scholars who are facing a competitive environment.

Press releases about the European survey during lockdown

A spring without en primeur - the foreboding of a market without buyers?

Press Release - Working Paper / Fine Wines - April 2020

Covid-19 and fine wines: the ‘perfect blend’ for a severe headache?

Jean-Marie Cardebat, Philippe Masset & Jean-Philippe Weisskopf
European Association of Wine Economists
Working paper – April 2020

Covid-19 has only been officially declared a pandemic since March 11, but its effects on the economy are already dramatic. For some industries, such as the travel & leisure industry, the current crisis is likely to become the most severe since the Great Depression. In this article, we investigate the impact of Covid-19 on the fine wine market (the upper segment of the wine market). The market for fine wine is dominated by France, with Bordeaux and Burgundy accounting for close to 50% and 20% respectively of the trading activity in 2019 (, 2019). Other major players include Italy, Spain, Germany, the U.S. (for production and consumption) and China (mostly for consumption). Buyers typically include fine-dining venues – whose revenues are currently down to zero; as well as consumers, collectors and investors – whose purchasing power suffers from the economic and financial turmoil. Given the context, it appears obvious that the fine wine market will experience negative effects due to the pandemic.

But two questions remain open: how severe will these effects be? And how long will the market take to recovers?

There are two ways to answer these questions. One is based on an economic analysis of the fundamental determinants of fine wine prices. The other is based on a comparative analysis of the economic crises that have impacted the fine wine market in the past. A synthesis of these analyses is proposed before looking at a prospective conclusion on the long-term effects of this crisis.

April 2020 - Launching of a European Survey

European Association of Wine Economists & INSEEC U. The European Association of Wine Economists is conducting research to study the impact of Covid-19 restrictive measures on the behavior of European wine consumers.

The completion of the questionnaire will take no more than 5 minutes of your time and will be done completely anonymously, in compliance with the law on privacy. The data collected will be used exclusively for scientific purposes.

The results are of great importance for both the academic and productive world.
