Successful entrepreneurs shape and move the wine business – as producers, merchants, publishers, communicators, organizers, or consultants. They are initiators, opinion leaders, and creators. They are shaped by spirit, creativity and assertiveness. “Wine Entrepreneurs” is a book about the recipes and stories of success of these strong and dedicated people.

“Wine Entrepreneurs” is about entrepreneurial thinking and acting, about innovations and values, decisions, leadership, and motivation – not only on an academic level but a very pragmatic one as well.
