The Journal is dedicated to enhancing case research and publishing exceptional teaching cases in an electronic format. A unique feature of this journal is to provide an industry digest of each issue's cases for dissemination, thereby informing global wine researchers and industry practitioners about cutting-edge challenges and possible exemplary solutions. Instructor's manuals, teaching notes, and other case supplements will be available solely to pre-qualified instructors. Published volumes and cases will be distributed in an open-access format.
