German Bulk Wine Market

Study and report by Marianne E. Steinschulte Geisenheim University, Germany (Marianne.Steinschulte@hs-gm.de).

The bulk wine trade plays a very important role for the wine business in Germany as it covers a large quantity of the market. The aim of this study is to contribute to the understanding of the German bulk wine market complexities and the long-term development.

The study is based on an exploratory analysis about the trade flow of bulk wine. A new database of the bulk wine transports in the Rhineland-Palatinate region in combination with official statistics provide a detailed insight into the structure and changes of the market.

The trade flow of the transported bulk wine volume shows different developments within the wine-growing regions. Structural changes on a long-term basis are motivated by the improvement of wine quality management requested by the customers and successful strategic management of the companies. The concomitant creation of a two-step-trade model reflects the intensive networking including a division of labor and as such represents a concentration process in the German wine business. Vintage-related short-term variability, however, doesn’t show a great impact on the trade flow organization of German bulk wine.

Practical implications: The detailed overview about the development of the bulk wine market is interesting for all managers concerned as well as politicians to assess the competitiveness of their own or the domestic wine production regarding prospective strategic decisions.

Meet Winegrapes Australia at IBWSS London 2018

About Winegrapes Australia:

Winegrapes Australia is dedicated to marketing and selling premium wine grapes and bulk wine parcels from the most recognised regions across South Australia, direct from their extensive network of growers.

In 1992, a small group of McLaren Vale growers decided to join forces. With a shared passion, they saw value in selling their grapes as a collective rather than individually. And so, Winegrapes Australia was established – a collective dedicated to marketing and selling their grapes.

Now, more than 20 years later, the business has grown to include a large number of growers from across South Australia, with an expanded offering of both grape varieties and bulk wine. Wholly owned by growers, Winegrapes is dedicated to producing some of Australia’s finest grapes, and now, exceptional wines tailor made to their requirements.

Grapes:

Since 1992, they’ve been connecting buyers with quality grapes direct from their growers in the most sought after regions of South Australia.

While a lot has changed in the industry over the years, their commitment to making the process of sourcing fruit as efficient as possible has stayed the same.

Winegrapes

Now with a network spanning 105 growers across 12 regions, 2,200 hectares of vineyard and 900 individual blocks of fruit—including certified organic and biodynamic grapes—they have all your options covered.

They can supply to your requirements from estate-grown single vineyards through to sub-regional options to provide diversity for blending. And if you’re looking for a particular variety or region, just ask and they’ll source it.

They’re constantly expanding their network and developing new offerings. Rather than waiting to hear about it on the grapevine, so-to-speak, sign up and stay up-to-date.

Wine:

Their business of marketing grapes has now grown to crafting some of the country’s finest wines using premium Australian wine grapes, available in bulk wine parcels or bottled to your requirements.

Winegrapes

They boast more 2,200 hectares of vineyard, which include popular varieties such as Shiraz, Cabernet, Chardonnay and Mataro. Choose from a wide range of single vineyard varietals, or with 105 growers producing 48 varieties, you can let regional diversity guide their creativity and they can make a blend to order.

Why London is to host landmark conference on bottled in market wine

The UK’s strategic importance as one of the most important hubs for bulk wine has been underlined this week with news that the prestigious International Bulk Wine and Spirits show is to hold its two-day 2018 conference in London in January. Sid Patel, chief executive of event organiser, Beverage Trade Network, explains why it is bringing the show to London and why bottled in market wine has such a big role to play in the on-trade.

The Buyer is pleased to link up with The International Bulk Wine and Spirits Show as one of its key strategic media partners as the event looks to put bottled in market wines high on the agenda for the on-trade.

You are bringing the IBWSS show to London, why and why now?

It is time, we made private label and bulk trade a norm. London being the most important market for private label and bulk trade, we decided to make London our host city for Europe. After getting a great response for our bulk wine show in USA which is held in San Francisco, (the latest being in July)  we see that buyers want to explore more options when they select their private label and bulk supply partners.

The UK is one of the leading store-owned and private label markets, so it was a no brainer that we provide the platform to connect these buyers to top class suppliers from all over the world who are ready to offer private label services and understand what it takes in being a private label supply partner and help the buyer build their brand.

You are looking for exhibitors and visitors. What can they both expect?

Visitors will get a chance to meet wineries and distilleries who offer private label / contract manufacturing options, bulk wine suppliers from all over the world, bulk spirits suppliers and contract bottlers. The idea of the show is that a visitor can walk in with an idea or a concept and can meet all the parties involved in developing a brand.

We will have graphic design companies who are experts in designing concept brands, we will have contract bottlers, we will have grape and spirits suppliers and we will have legal advisors.

Exhibitors will get a chance to meet buyers looking to develop private label brands from all channels. Exhibitors will also meet wineries and distilleries looking to meet their demand of bulk wine and spirits.

Who do you think the show is particularly relevant to and why?

The show is relevant to custom crush suppliers, distilleries and wineries who could branch into providing these facilities in addition to bulk wine and spirits and buyers from every tier of business who want to explore these services.

It is time we educated suppliers about the advantages of offering such services and how it helps distilleries and wineries grow their bottom line and build relationships. It is time we accepted the new norm and the future of the wine industry. It is all about taking advantage of these opportunities and hitting new channels.

Why do you think the bulk wine market is so important to deserve its own two day conference?

The timing of the show is very important. The show is the ONLY one of its kind where bulk wine, bulk spirits and private label business will happen. We wanted to create a show that encourages bulk providers to do business openly. For many of the top reasons, bulk trade has been in the grey area. We want to clarify a lot of myths, we want to share case studies of wineries that have their own brands and at the same time develop private label brands for their own customers.

If you don’t do it, someone else will, it’s as simple as that. The conference topics will help wineries and distilleries understand how they can optimise their wineries by offering such verticals, it will also show buyers what to look for in their supply partners and it will educate the trade on myths about bulk wine and spirits.
