Abstract

This exploratory study assessed the cohesiveness and discord among four separate supply-side stakeholder groups in the US Chautauqua-Lake Erie wine region. Results from 17 ANOVA tests indicated agreement on many important issues, a departure from previous studies in tourism (Byrd, Bosley, & Dronberger, 2009; Kuvan & Akan, 2012). Disagreement was shown about marketing, community appreciation for, and attention by government to wine tourism issues. The findings suggest more data are needed to source the causes of these disparities. Overall, the results signify a region ready for "the informed participation of all relevant stakeholders" (United Nations World Tourism Organization, n.d.) and stakeholder collaboration that is requisite for sustainable tourism development.
