Abstract

The Pisco is a superior quality clear brandy produced in southern Peru obtained from the fermented grape juice or must that has being exported to many countries around the world. The analysis is focused on the associated and non-associated current situation of the small Pisco Producers in the Cañete valley-which is one of the most important Pisco production place in Peru-: the farmers who join the associations are very few comparing to the ones who work individually, but their willingness to belong to an organization is very high due to the benefits that they would receive through the cooperation. However, the fact of being associated or not does not impact significantly the current Pisco production volume and there is no presence of strong relationship between the dummy dependent variable association and the explanatory variable education as part of the socio-economic characteristics of the farmer.
