Wine collection insurance

Owning treasured wine is as popular as ever, and many are truly passionate about their wines.

Galileo Galilei once quoted “Wine is sunlight, held together by water” and Sir Robert Scott Caywood stated “Compromises are made for relationships….not wine.” Such quotes epitomise the thoughts of a true wine collector.

However in the past 10 years, wine has become an investment, and with any investment it requires the right type of protection. A serious wine collector needs to understand their exposures to protect their liquid assets. Our high value home insurers will include specific cover to protect your wine collection from:

  • Worldwide cover
  • Accidental damage
  • Theft and breakage of wine bottles
  • Loss of labels following water damage
  • Any extreme temperature changes following fires
  • Ability to cover wine kept at third party storage locations
