Book Talk and Wine Tasting - Innovation and Technological Catch-Up: The Changing Geography of Wine Production

Description:
Since the beginning of the 1990s, the supremacy of Old World countries (France and Italy) in the international wine market has been challenged by new players, such as Australia, Argentina, Chile and South Africa, which are recording stunning performances in terms both of export volume and value. This book demonstrates that such a spectacular example of catch-up goes beyond simply copying new technologies; it entails creative adaptation and innovation, and introduces a new growth trajectory in which consistent investments in research and science play a key role. An editor and contributing author will speak. A wine tasting will follow the book talk. This event is free and open to the public. {Will appear in FYI on Aug 12, 2011
