Reviews

“I am pleased to recommend this book as a useful guide for understanding the latest issues in the wine industry regarding sustainability and social action. This is the first text to focus on both sustainability and social action, which have been inherent in the wine sector but rarely available for students to study and learn them from a range of internationally known authors.” (Professor Larry Lockshin, University of South Australia, Australia)

“This is a very useful book for anyone who does research and/or teaches in wine business, especially around the topic of sustainability. Filled with many interesting examples, stories, and tips.” (Dr. Liz Thach, MW, Distinguished Professor of Wine & Management, Wine Business Institute, Sonoma State University, USA)

“A useful guide with great international examples from different fields of the wine business which underlines the importance of social responsibility.” (Professor Dr. Gergely Szolnoki, Geisenheim University, Germany)
