We contribute to the literature on the relationship between product quality and market prices in two dimensions. First, we empirically account for endoge- nous reputation effects. An increase in quality has an immediate positive impact on product prices but also improves the reputation of a firm, which contributes to higher prices in the future. Secondly, we investigate selection effects in expert evaluations. Experts typically evaluate a selection of products only. In the wine market, we find that sample selection effects are important and conclude that reputation effects are highly relevant particularly for the top wines of a winery (’umbrella branding‘). Keywords: experts evaluations, hedonic pricing, wine quality, reputation-effects, sample selection, umbrella branding
