PRODUCTS AND SERVICES… AND AN EXCLUSIVE ENDORSEMENT
An all lines, wine business insurance program exclusively endorsed by five winery associations including the Sonoma County Vintners Association…
With this program, over 350 Northern California wineries are working together to change the way insurance is being purchased with pretty amazing results….
In our initial Beta test we met with winery owners…and reviewed all three lines of insurance (that includes workers compensation, property casualty and employee benefits) specifically for coverage adequacy and saving potential.
The results– we increased coverage ineverycase and identified up to 30% in savings potential at the same time.
We actually work with associations throughout Northern California generating savings with a similar approach. At this point, 82% of the businesses we have met with have signed up for the program.
We’re wine business specialists…and the key to the competitive advantage is in wine businesses working together to create purchasing clout in the marketplace.
