Abstract

In an era of the growing importance of sustainability within the context of ESG, how are consumers in key global wine markets relating to sustainability in wine?

Based on new consumer insight from 15 wine markets globally, Lulie Halstead will explore how motivated wine drinkers are by sustainability credentials for wine and what motivates them to choose – or not choose – wine based on these factors. She will share insights around how consumers perceive organic wine, what biodynamic means to them and what barriers could be preventing further consumer engagement with sustainable wine.
