What should be included on a Vineyard Insurance policy?

As a winery, there are some very specific risks that you will need to consider which relate to the growth and production of your grapes.
Business Interruption Insurance. Sometimes referred to as Business Disruption cover, this can be invaluable to wineries or vineyard owners. It protects you in circumstances where your vineyard is damaged due to a flood, fire or other insured incident.

Rather than insuring you for the loss itself, it protects you against loss of income following the event. You will need to replace stock, re-establish production and you will have fixed overheads to cover while you aren’t generating full income. You can choose the right indemnity period – the period of time it covers following the insured incident. Obviously, this should reflect your businesses particular circumstances and you should assess how long it might take to get fully operational again.

What else should be considered when buying insurance for a Vineyard?

There are a range of other covers that you will need to consider depending on your business activity. Where you have anyone working for you, you are required by law to have a minimum of £5m Employers Liability Insurance in place. If you have members of the public visiting your premises – be that clients arranging commercial purchases or private individuals attending a wine tasting – you will need Public Liability Insurance.

As a winery you will have a significant amount of plant and machinery that will need to be insured alongside your premises and contents including stock. Where you use vehicles in the business – to deliver stock, for example, they will need to be insured on a commercial policy.
