Zhao, Xueyan, Anderson, Kym and Wittwer, Glyn (2003) Who gains from Australian generic wine promotion and R&D? Australian Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics, 47 (2). pp. 181-209. ISSN 1364-985X (print) 1467-8489 (online)


The present paper estimates the distributions of aggregate returns from different types of research and promotion investments by the Australian grape and wine industry among grapegrowers, winemakers, domestic and foreign consumers, and the tax office. The results show that most of the gains from cost-reducing R&D in grape and wine production go to producers and that producers get a far larger share of the benefit from export promotion than that from domestic promotion. Foreign consumers of Australian wine also enjoy a significant share of the benefits from Australian R&D. Sensitivity analysis shows that the key results hold for a wide range of parameter values.
