He has published wine marketing research in academic journals, presented papers at leading academic conferences and published extensively in editor reviewed industry journals.
In 2006 Steve was awarded a nationally competitive grant from the Grape and Wine Research Development Corporation (GWRDC) to map the influences of consumer choice for wine selection, a research project in conjunction with the Wine Marketing Group at UniSA and collaborators in 11 other countries. In 2009 he was awarded a grant from the GWRDC to study the decision influencers along the wine supply chain in Australia, China and the USA and in 2012 awarded funding from AWGA (formerly GWRDC) to investigate the role of social media in wine brand growth.

Previously he lectured in Business and Marketing Planning and Marketing Communications at the University of South Australia, Marketing Management at Flinders University and Wine Marketing and Marketing Communications at the University of Adelaide (Waite). In 2005 Steve was nominated by UniSA for an Australian University Teaching Award.
A PhD Graduate of the University of Adelaide, Steve's PhD examined the use and impact of the internet for marketing activities within the value chain of the South Australian Wine Industry and identified a marketing planning framework for the firm and its interactions with other firms in its value system.
Dr Goodman has given keynote presentations on Wine Marketing at conferences in Europe and Australia and Wine Tourism in Chile and has extensive consulting experience as a Partner with Souter & Goodman Wine Marketing where he worked with SME Wineries in South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia to design and implement strategies for direct marketing, b2b marketing and cellar door activity. In 2000, he co-founded WINEPAGES (now Daily Wine News)a Daily email newsletter and online Suppliers Directory that reached over 70% of Australian Wineries.

- My Research
- Grants and Funding
- Professional Activities
My specialisation is in the field of wine marketing and wine business. Driven from my Honours and PhD research as well asexperience running a wine marketing consultancy I am driven to develop learning and insight from empirical research to assist the wine industry practitioner to make better business decisions, design and develop marketing activity for the brand and along the supply chain.
Whilst the wine industry is often seen as a context for research, my interest is in the wine marketing & business as a specialisation.
I am currently involved in wine marketing and business research broadly along the Marketing Communications and Servicescape fields - specifically looking at
- Wine brands and social media
- Events and effects on the wine brand and purchase intent
- Cellar door service and design - impacts on quality perceptions and purchase intent
- Wine advertising messages and impact on brand engagement and purchase intent
I have also examined the use of information and decision making in the wine business, consumer choice for wine in the on and off-premise situations and business decision making along the wine supply chain.
