Scientometric studies provide a good way of understanding why and how international research collaboration occurs. Our study investigates patterns of international scientific collaboration in wine related research. We test a gravity model that accounts for geographical, cultural, commercial, technological, structural and institutional differences among a group of Old World (OW) and New World (NW) producers and consumers. Our findings confirm the problems imposed by geographical and technological distance on international research collaboration.
