Successful entrepreneurs shape and move the wine business – as producers, merchants, publishers, communicators, organizers, or consultants. They are initiators, opinion leaders, and creators. They are shaped by spirit, creativity and assertiveness. “Wine Entrepreneurs” is a book about the recipes and stories of success of these strong and dedicated people. How did their career go? Which characteristics differentiate and connect them? How do they approach new challenges?

“Wine Entrepreneurs” is about entrepreneurial thinking and acting, about innovations and values, decisions, leadership, and motivation – not only on an academic level but a very pragmatic one as well.
