Wine Collection Insurance Coverage
Protect your entire wine collection
You insure your cars, jewelry, even your fine art, so why not wine? Depending on what type of homeowners’ coverage you have, your wine collection may not be protected. Even a simple power outage, not an uncommon event, could lead to a wine loss which is not covered.
Ideally, a wine collection, like other valuables such as antiques, should be separately insured against power losses and mechanical breakdown, fire, breakage and theft.
With our ongoing relationship with leading wine experts, Ellis Insurance provides access to comprehensive wine protection programs, including insurance coverages, loss control services and inventory systems.
Features and benefits of working with Ellis Insurance include:
- Blanket and itemized coverage options
Choose blanket coverage or itemized coverage or a combination of the two. With blanket coverage, your entire collection is covered under one limit, with a generous single bottle limit of up to $50,000. Itemized coverage is recommended for wines valued at $10,000 or more and can be combined with blanket coverage to provide the best protection for your collection.
- Power outage and mechanical breakdown
This coverage includes loss due to power outage or mechanical breakdown of heating, cooling and humidity control equipment – critical coverages for oenophiles.
- Wide spectrum of perils
Coverage spans a wide spectrum of causes of loss including fire and theft breakage, flood, and a range of others.
- New purchase protection
Depending on the purchase amount, coverage automatically provides up to 100% of the itemized limit for wine on the policy for up to 90 days, giving you plenty of time to report your new acquisitions to us. Compare this to 25% or a maximum of $50,000 offered by leading competitors.
- Worldwide coverage
Your wine is protected worldwide and while in transit.
- No deductibles on standard policies.
Ellis Insurance also gives you access to top wine inventory management and appraisal resources at preferred rates.
