The book, “La Economía del Vino en España y el Mundo” (“The Economy of Wine in Spain and the World”), won the International Wine Organization (OIV) 2015 Book Award.
Villanueva’s chapter (#19, in Spanish) is titled “Innovation in the World’s Wine Business: The Influence of the United States and Australia.”

The OIV gives its OIV Book Award to the best books published in the world of wine in the previous two years. “I am thrilled with the news,” said Villanueva. “In 2013, I participated on a Spanish publication sponsored by the Ministry of Agriculture that was finally published in December 2014. This was a joint effort led by Spanish Professors J.S. Castillo and R. Compés that had the participation of more than 15 co-authors from universities in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Chile, Argentina, and myself from the United States.”

The book won the “OIV Award” for the year 2015 after competing with 55 other publications coming from 17 different countries Judges selected the book because of “its original and relevant contribution, and international scope.”
