Creating Wine

James Simpson

Princeton University Press

This chapter examines how Australians learned to grow grapes and make wine, and the advances in wine-making technologies linked to dry table wine production. The Australian wine industry dates from the end of the eighteenth century, but as in California and Argentina, it was only in the two or three decades prior to the First World War that it became commercially important. The chapter then considers the problems of vertical coordination, or “cooperation” as contemporaries called it, between grape growing and wine making. Finally, the chapter shows that the Australian commodity chain differed from California in that it was market driven from Britain and explains why attempts to create an alternative Australian distribution network failed.

Keywords:   Australia, Australian wine industry, grape growing, Australian commodity chain, Britain, distribution network, dry table wine, wine making
