Winery, Distillery & Craft Brewing

One of our insurance experts will pair nicely with your business operations.

The Industry

Each winery, brewery and distillery is as distinct as the people and ingredients it takes to craft that perfect pour. Canada, and British Columbia in particular, is home to some of the world’s finest wineries, an established craft beer industry, and a burgeoning distilling sector.

With exposures ranging from agriculture processes, wine tours, to on-premises restaurants, tasting rooms, and accommodations, this industry demands coverage uniquely customized to your operations. The insurance needs of craft brewers vary greatly from larger, full-scale breweries. It is important to match up with an advisor who can help you manage this risk to ensure you remain focused on perfecting the finest beverages, and not worrying about your insurance program.
