Starting from the preclassical paradigms of Cantillon and Quesnay, up to the affirmation of the classical theory of Smith and Ricardo, wine has been used by the great authors of economic thought to analyze the issue of productivity in the primary sector, in the relationship with the manufacturing sector and in international trade. While losing much of its paradigmatic role with the marginalist revolution, wine remains the object of some contemporary issues that characterize economic investigation.
