The Unique Risks of Operating A Winery or Vineyard

From grapes to retail, there are a lot of risks that wineries and vineyards face. Thankfully, XINSURANCE is here to provide insurance coverage solutions and true peace of mind every step of the way.

Here are some risks that are unique to wineries and vineyards:

  • damage to property and inventory due to weather-related risks
  • wine leakage
  • pest-related risks
  • wine stock contamination
  • damaged products in transit
  • winemaking equipment breakdown
  • a guest slips and falls on your property
  • and much more!

You can only do so much in a given day to mitigate these risks. It is wise to carry winery insurance that can protect you and your business in the event of an incident, accident, or lawsuit.

Winery Insurance vs Vineyard Insurance

It is important to understand the difference between a winery and vineyard and if there are differences in insurance coverage.

The difference between a winery and a vineyard is that a vineyard is where grapes are grown and a winery is a property that makes wine. To expand on this, vineyards can have a winery that produces wine from the grapes it grows but it can also sell its grapes to outside wineries. Whereas wineries might not have their own vineyard and if that’s the case, then they just buy and bring in grapes from an outside vineyard.

Now then, the difference between winery insurance and vineyard insurance doesn’t differ that much, of course, the deciding factor is whether or not the winery has a vineyard on the premises and vice versa. XINSURANCE can provide insurance solutions to both wineries and vineyards.

Examples of Winery Lawsuits

We live in a frivolous society and whether they’re justified or not, lawsuits can occur at any time. In April of 2022, 50 Bay Area wineries were hit with disability lawsuits. Many complaints said that these wineries in California failed to meet accessibility standards according to the Americans with Disabilities Act. ADA compliance is very important and every business needs to make sure they are up to date with standards.

Another lawsuit example, back in 2015, a list of California wineries were named in a complaint that alleged that these wineries sold wine that they knew to be contaminated with unacceptable levels of inorganic arsenic. Inorganic arsenic can cause a variety of symptoms including nausea and diarrhea.

These are just two examples of potential lawsuits that wineries can face. What’s most important is that you have an insurance partner who fights claims and stands by your side when a lawsuit occurs. XINSURANCE has an in-house staff of skilled litigators to provide extraordinary claims results.
