Wine industrial districts in glocal value chains

Why are some districts well on the road to decline, while others have succeeded in evolving and reproducing the district form? In this paper, we seek an answer to this question by studying Italian wine clusters, supporting that the global value analysis perspective is useful in order to see where Italian industrial districts are heading and suggesting the powerful role of “communications machines” played by non-manufacturing intermediaries within what could be named glocal value chains.
