Abstract

In this chapter we present some of the main figures of the governance process in the wine industry. We define the governance as the voluntarily actions for a private or/and public regulation of the markets. Both parts of local and national entities involved in the governance, public and private, are interconnected in embedded social and economic networks, with multiple enforcement mechanisms to form the base of the concrete transaction framework. This presentation illustrates part of these complexities in the agrofood sector. For our demonstration we firstly remind the mainspring of the collective governance process in the agricultural sector. The contract analysis of the bilateral relations is able to represent a limited part of the governance and unable to represent the complexity of the monetary and non monetary exchange between the different agents involved in the development of the multiple regional, national and international commodity chains. Based on a New Institutional Economics approach, we develop a framework of the governance of these spatially and socially root based industry.
