"A meticulously crafted analysis of luxury wine marketing. This
book needs to be on every wine executive's desk." -- Glyn Atwal
"A thorough and enjoyable examination of the past, present and future of the global luxury wine business - a somewhat elusive, yet highly sought-after sector, particularly in Asia. With extensive focus on practical approaches and real-life case studies, it is a must-read for those focused on developing successful strategies to compete in the luxury wine space." -- Debra Meiburg MW
"The wine market has usually been divided into beverage/commercial wine and premium. Although luxury wine exists, there has never been a reference to analyse and understand the luxury wine market, from history to management to marketing, and even to manage imitations and counterfeits. Peter Yeung and Liz Thach have now provided an outstanding book that covers all the issues and guidelines in developing and managing a luxury wine brand. Highly recommended for wine industry professionals, wineries, and students of wine business." -- Dr Larry Lockshin

"To be successful in any luxury business, it is important to understand the specialized type of marketing that is necessary to engage with luxury consumers. This book provides an excellent overview of how to accomplish this successfully in the world of global luxury wine." -- Tom Bonomi
