Fireman's Fund Insurance Company has announced that it is offering insurance for wineries, which will provide coverage to businesses involved in growing, making and selling wine.
Wine is produced in all 50 states of the US with more than 3,700 wineries across the nation. Insurance for wineries provides coverage for businesses engaged in all aspects of winery operations, including vineyards, equipment, employees, winemaking and production, retail stores and tasting rooms as well as on-site tours and events. In addition, clients can add an endorsement to value their in-process wines as well as their limited edition library and heritage wines at their ultimate selling price.
Boutique wineries, with production between 750 and 2,500 cases per year can take advantage of farm and ranch insurance that combines coverage for the primary residence and the working vineyard to protect agricultural structures, equipment and commercial vehicles, home and auto in one policy.
Sue Miller, vice president of commercial insurance, said: Fireman’s Fund has been insuring wineries for more than 50 years. We’re combining that experience with our farm and ranch and hospitality industry experience to develop more extensive coverage for wineries. This new product meets winemakers’ key business concerns.
