Abstract

top
In the wine AOC system, the regulation of quantities performed by the professional organizations is aimed to smooth the variations of the quality of the wine due to the variations in the climate that affect the quality of the grapes. Nevertheless, this regulation could be damaging to the consumers due to the price increase resulting from the reduction of the quantities sold on the market. We propose a stochastic control model and a simulation tool able to measure the effects of this mechanism on the producer's profit and the consumer's surplus.
