General liability coverage
Your winery could be responsible for all related damages and expenses if a customer is injured while on your business premises.
General liability coverage protects you from unexpected events, hazards, problems, and accidents. It’s imperative if your winery offers public tours and tasting events.
Without viable grapes, you can’t make wine. Wineries need crop insurance for the costs of crop damage due to weather, vine infections, insect infestations, fires, floods, and other potential hazards.
Crop coverage will cover all your above perils. However, You may need to purchase additional earthquake coverage if you live in an area where it’s necessary.
Commercial auto coverage
You need commercial auto coverage if your winery uses personal, company, or rented vehicles for business purposes.
Maybe you deliver products, visit customers to assist their needs or travel to industry events. Commercial auto insurance can take care of the vehicle damages and related medical expenses if you or any of your employees are involved in an auto accident.
Business Interruption coverage
Business interruption insurance is essential when it may take some time before a business can get back to business. This can be a result of unexpected events like fire.
Buildings may be unsafe, employees may be unsafe, or even property or equipment may need to be repaired. In situations outside of your control, business interruption insurance is crucial for the business.
Equipment breakdown Coverage
You can face a sudden breakdown of your equipment which halts your wine production. This can reduce the supply and incur a loss.
Wineries need equipment breakdown coverage to protect against costs associated with the sudden and accidental breakdown of machinery and equipment. It pays to repair or replace the equipment, as well as any business interruption costs that accompany it.

Wineries and vineyards are complicated businesses that can come with big rewards and no shortage of risks. You wear many hats in order to run your business—from farmer, to scientist, to marketer, and many more—yet so many things are simply out of your control.
