Wickramasekera, Rumintha G. & Bamberry, Geoff (2003) An Overview of a Successful Export Industry from Regional Australia. International Journal of Wine Marketing. International Journal of Wine Marketing, 15(3), pp. 15-30.


This article uses data from a survey sample of 292 Australian wineries, as well as a number of case studies, to provide an overview of the export behaviour of wineries based on their stage of internationalization. The overview describes winery characteristics including age, number of employees, extent of domestic market penetration, extent of planning for exporting, reasons for entering the export market and attitudes towards factors perceived to enhance or inhibit exporting. The characteristics of senior managers involved in the decision to export including country of birth, level of education, amount of overseas work experience, work experience in a firm engaged in exporting and fluency in a foreign language are also described.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
