This survey is made up of two sections. The first contains analysis of 140 Italian companies operating in the wine industry, which in 2015 turned over more than €25m, whose financial statements have been aggregated for the 2011-2015 period. These companies are wine industry specialists, often operating across several regions. Companies which generate their turnover chiefly through the sale of other products, despite also managing wine-making activities of significant size nationally, have been excluded from the analysis. Where available, preference has been given to consolidated data. The aggregate consists of 43 co-operatives (including six limited companies controlled by one or more co-operatives), 90 Italian-owned and seven non-Italian-owned limited companies. In 2015 the aggregate generated turnover of €6.6bn, with a degree of representativeness estimated at 51% of the total production (which in 2015 was estimated at around €12.9bn) and 63.6% of the total exports (€5.4bn). The earnings/financial data have been supplemented with interviews of the companies covered to obtain preliminary indications regarding the 2016 pre-closing figures, estimated sales for 2017 and certain aspects of their commercial structure. The second section in turn contains two parts. The first analyses the 2006-2015 aggregate of the 14 largest international listed companies with turnover in excess of €150m, which in 2015 generated €10.8bn in revenues. The second part illustrates the performance of the Mediobanca global share price index of listed wine-makers between 2001 and mid-March 2017. The index features 42 companies whose shares are traded on 20 stock markets, and whose market capitalization at the reference date totalled €49.9bn.
