A salutary Christmas tale

Two weeks before Christmas, heavy snow collapsed the roof of the bonded warehouse where our client’s wine was stored before distribution. Because of the building’s unsafe condition, the wine couldn’t be reached for a fortnight. Meanwhile, despite the bottles being unbroken, rain ruined the labels and made the product unsaleable. Under ‘normal’ policies, the notorious ‘label clause’ would have meant the product wasn’t technically damaged – so no claim would be upheld. Merry Christmas everyone!

Wine insurance that actually works

Fortunately, we’d used our knowledge and close contacts with specialist underwriters to arrange suitable cover – so the insurers paid for the wine and the consequential business disruption. Another reason why savvy importers and wholesalers trust us for their wine and spirits insurance and their peace of mind.

Once again, our forethought and industry connections got the claim paid. While other wine merchant insurance might not have paid, we settled up and went some way to saving Christmas for one very grateful wine importer.
