Wine distribution around the globe is in a state of flux. The traditional producer/wholesaler/retailer model is under severe pressure. We have seen a number of distributors fail, both in Australia and overseas.

Giant retailers want the distributor’s margin and more and more often they go direct to producers. Some even become wine producers themselves.

Producers sometimes feel they have no choice but to deal direct with the retailer and they are doing everything they can to grow their “direct to consumer” business.

Where is all of this going and what does it mean for small and medium sized wine producers?

Attend Wine Roadshow XXI and learn how you need to respond to the changing nature of wine distribution.
