The Wine Business School of Sonoma State University has researched a topic regarding effect of environment changes to enterprises.  It shows the longer history and bigger enterprises have more effective methods to take.

There’re 11784 samples of wine enterprises worldwide, among which there’re 338 samples deeply interviewed. 58% of samples are small wine companies and 56% of samples have no more than 20 years histories.

When natural and economic environment changes take place, wine enterprises would often adopt three strategies, updating training methods and contents, innovating management and control system and steps, and changing management style.

However, smaller wine companies would tend to make new sales and marketing strategies and compete with peers to adapt to indeterminacy of development.

Overall those larger wine enterprises have longer advantages of sustainable development.

Why Bordeaux Wines Overseas Sales Go Down, While Burgundy Wines Up?

Posted on August 16, 2019 by Abbelio Wines | 0 comments

Bordeaux grapes are about to be picked, but the cellars are full of wines.

This year and last year many economists and eCommerce big data indicate the consumption trend is changing all the time. 

One very apparent trend: French people prefer rose, white and sparklings, compared with red wine “ripe and steady” and rose is younger, more energetic and easier to drink. Rose’s pink color and best matches with transparent glass and beautiful sights are very popular to be shared on social media by young people.

This trend is not only in France, but also in many other countries.

And Bordeaux produces 80% red wines, others only 20%.

However, Burgundy oversea sales are over 3 billion Euros and are increased by 12.3% compared with last year. The biggest oversea markets are USA and UK. Even though, President Trump would increase French wine taxes, which haven’t been taken place due to many reasons. US market is still steady and optimistic.
