The Business of Vineyards – Part II - Protecting Your Business Through Corporate Structure, Indemnity Agreements, and Insurance


Meadowood - 900 Meadowood Ln, St Helena, CA 94574


12:00am - 2:00am


As the business of grapegrowing has evolved, both vineyard owners and vineyard management companies' interests and concerns have become more similar. To reflect this, we have combined the Grower Series and Round Table Discussion into one exciting new four-part series, The Business of Vineyards. This series will focus on all aspects of running a vineyard business and address important topics relevant to operating a healthy and successful company.

As vineyard owners and vineyard management companies work more closely together, they increasingly face liabilities together as well.  We will discuss how to draft agreements to prioritize, allocate and address these shared liabilities through a variety of mechanisms, including indemnity provisions and the purchase of insurance.  In a well-drafted contract, indemnity and insurance provisions work together seamlessly to ensure that the appropriate party is bearing each business risk – and is purchasing sufficient insurance to comply with its contractual obligations.
