Current Issue

Spring 2018 (Volume 33, Number 4)

Welcome to the first quarterly issue of the Wine & Viticulture Journal! Actually, scratch that. It’s not the first quarterly issue at all. Technically, it’s the 52nd. Confused? As long, long-time subscribers may recall, the Journal actually started out life as a quarterly. Back then, it was known as the Wine Industry Journal, which was published quarterly from 1986 to 1998 (with just three issues published in the year of 1988, for those doing the sums) until publisher Paul Clancy, after a year of planning, released the first bi-monthly issue of the Journal, expanding the magazine’s marketing and business section in the process and giving the publication its first facelift in 13 years.

Subscribers have access to an online version of each print issue.
