Special Issue "Wine: Consumers’ Perceptions, Preferences and Behaviour"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2021).
Interests: grape composition, wine quality and style; wine terroir and authenticity; inter-individual variation in taste and texture perception; wine astringency and body; vegetable fining agents; oral microbiome; consumption context; virtual and augmented reality; consumer emotions; wine and food pairing; new wine product development; wine tourism
Interests: all aspects associated with food choice; effects of consumption context; sensory method development and validation; rapid sensory methods; emotions; visual attention; cross-cultural consumer research
Currently, the global wine industry is transitioning from being producer-driven to becoming more consumer-centric. This Special Issue aims to present high-quality original research contributions, short communications and reviews on wine consumers’ wine perception, preference and behaviour, including innovations in research methodologies.
It will cover all aspects of wine consumer research and potentially encompass topics such as sensory and molecular drivers of preference; contextual influences; wine consumer segmentation; and cross-cultural and inter-individual differences.
Research examining consumer acceptance of new wine products/styles plus topical issues, e.g., consumer attitudes toward wine provenance, authenticity, sustainability, ethical wine production and healthy lifestyles, are of interest.
Papers investigating digital technologies to collect and analyse wine consumer data will also be encouraged.
