    Wine is hardly a new product. Already widely drunk and traded in the Middle East and around the Mediterranean several thousand years ago, it has slowly but consistently diffused itself across the five continents. Anybody who has ever taken part in a vintage will remember how easy is to produce wine: it simply requires collecting and pressing grapes and storing the juice in barrels until it ferments. But even an inexperienced drinker quickly finds that each wine tastes different. These differences in taste are so valued by consumers that a vintage bottle of wine can be a luxury or positional good, as expensive as a diamond. However the bulk of the annual production of wine is not expensive: it is a rather reasonable and affordable beverage widely diffused to the tables of restaurants and households. As with any other consumer product, its sales are affected by traditional factors: price and quality.
