In the last decade, the number of wineries in Washington boomed from 650 to just under 1,000. And the amount of grapes crushed rose from 156,000 tons in 2009 to 229,000 tons in 2017.
All that’s to say, vineyards are expanding and the amount of complexity in their day-to-day operations isn’t getting any easier. Every vineyard, winery and custom crush operation is unique with its own set of unique risks. Our approach is to look at each one holistically, from insuring the crop to offering contract review to providing workers’ comp all the way down.
