Definizione

A venture owned jointly by a number of different
members for wine production and marketing.

Nota

[…] Collectively, they usually have access to a broad range of
financial advantages, including subsidies in the European Union,
over individual producers. In most countries they also enjoy the
commercial advantage of being able to describe their wines as mis
en bouteille à la propriété and erzeugerabfüllung more usually
associated with much smaller, individually managed wine
enterprises. The better co-operatives are becoming increasingly
skilled not just at wine-making but also at marketing specific
bottlings designed to look and taste every bit as distinctive as the
individually produced competition.[…]
The majority of wine co-operatives were formed in the early
1930s in the immediate aftermath of the Depression.

Contesto

Cooperative wineries (or co-ops) are almost always owned by the
growers, who have a stake in the management and products made.
