Cristina Santini, Alessio Cavicchi, Isabella Crespi, Valentina Andriani Sustainable development and enterprises’ choices in the wine industry: a case-study in the italian context

An emerging interest in sustainability in the wine industry is demonstrated by at least 3 patterns: a) a growing body of academic literature on this research issue, b) the rise of new academic journals and scientific communities in social science fields, c) the birth of many university research centres and institutes for a joint evaluation of costs and benefits, especially in the so-called New World wine countries. Thus, winery owners and managers are considering the effectiveness of sustainable practices and if it is worth the time and resources to be sustainable oriented. Talking about sustainability opens up a multitude of research issues, especially in wine, where being sustainable is often misunderstood for being organic or biodynamic. From the literature, it emerges that one of the key questions research should address is: “Under what conditions does sustainability happen?” This is strongly related to the awareness and the attitudes towards environment and sustainable development by the most attentive managers in the wine chains. The wine industry is particularly suitable for research on this issue, and the stream of research about firms’ internal and external dimensions of sustainability needs to be explored in depth. In particular, this paper will focus on the intersections among structural aspects (external drivers), cultural aspects (internal drivers) and the agency (enterprise choices) involved in enterprises’ strategies of action.

The aim of this paper is to investigate managerial customs and attitudes toward sustainability in a group of Italian «green» wineries. In accordance with the Theory of Reasoned Action and the concept of «agency» a semi-structured questionnaire has been developed and in-depth interviews have been carried out with 8 wine entrepreneurs and managers. Results show the possibility of a responsive set of choices by managers, mainly determined by cultural values of the company, and of the social context as well.
