Executive Summary
The international trade of wine is witnessing growth in Australia. Excluding the unexpected and temporary impact of the global pandemic COVID-19, Jacob’s Creek is expected to show similar growth and progression. The major markets in countries like The United Kingdom, The United States of America and China has shown an increased inclination in the demand for bulk wine products and other countries in South Asia and South American, where the markets of bottled wine are expected on the rise. Jacob’s Creek can utilise the advantages of policies of liberalisation and bilateral ties for the effectively promoting its product having a competitive edge. Similarly, the policies of pricing can be looked at strategically for positive outcomes. Jacob’s Creek is recommended to utilise the advantages of the international export opportunities and closely monitor the global market among other recommendation in the paper.
Introduction
Australia has been successfully exporting wine. As indicated by Shane, Murad and Freeman (2018), Jacob’s Creek, Consequently, has been reporting growth. The major markets of Australian wins have been in countries such as The United Kingdom, The United States of America and China. It still has scope for growth in the unexplored wine export areas. The ideal goals for the organisation would be focused at creating revitalised strategies for priority countries and exploring fresh markets.
This makes the next steps for the international market expansion. An objective of a growth of five per cent in the international export can be targeted for the time span of one year. With an effective marketing program in the targeted market, this can be executed with the most suitable media mix including video streaming advertising and visual
anding for the upliftment in the global category.
Along with this optimisation of the public relations and enhancing, the efforts in the direction of social media of the country on the global and local levels would be complimentary to achieve the goal of increasing awareness to ten per cent annually. The related risk for the international expansion may be forecasted in the areas of costs related to the costs of the supply chain and as mentioned by Varsei, Christ and Bu
itt (2017), in the risk-weighted water usage.

Possible Outcomes Observed in International Trade Environment
As reported by Loose and Pabst (2018), there are basic changes recently in the profile of wine trade on international platform. The structure if the wine trade has various aspects including differentiated wine based on the demographical and geographical dynamism, higher segmentation and differentiation in the wine market, strategic pricing along the with the factors of regulations and guidelines at the local levels that usually differs with countries.
The international trade structure of the wine market has recently demonstrated a larger geographic diversification and an apparent consolidation specifically in the continents of Europe and North America. As indicated by Hu and Baldin (2018), the extent of this is rather smaller for the countries Russia and China on the front of international trade of bottled wine category. Contrastingly, as mentioned by Rainer, Putz and Steiner (2019), the export of bulk wine with its higher demand has been gaining market share over the preference to the bottled wine due to the elasticity of the higher price, which is driven by the trade across the borders of the countries in the same continents with similar monetary units.
This can particularly be used by Jacob’s Creek to benefit the international trade in the countries with friendly borders having ease of business with each other. The trade ba
iers and border restrictions are key factors for international wide trade process. Varsei et al. (2017) have revealed the complex relationship between environmental and economic indicators. The outcomes indicate the prospect of the future international trade of wine is complemented with a high segmentation in the origin.
It also enjoys dynamism of the transaction costs, the diversification of the export destinations, the larger intra-industry specialisation of the trade and the dissimilar regulations along with the languages and cultural differences among different countries. The strategies of Jacob’s Creek are set to
ing positive outcomes in the category of bulk wine export to the mentioned countries where the demand exceeds the experiences (Bargain, Cardebat, Chiappini &...
