Abstract

The current problems of the California wine industry all have parallels in the industry's earlier days. Its history is a fabric of high and low profits, overplanting and underplanting, surplus and shortage, and ascending and descending preferences. The industry has become robust and exceedingly complex but has never really resolved the problem of the profitable coordination of grape production and wine sales.
