Nurture Your Business Like Your Wines

12-08-2014

Wineries have come under increased scrutiny recently for using volunteers. The practice often conflicts with state and federal wage and hour laws, exposing wineries to potential liability. Knowing what programs wineries may implement consistent with these wage and hour laws is therefore critical for all wineries to understand.

Also, to operate your winery you may choose from one of a number of legal business structures, whether it be a sole proprietorship, Limited Liability Company or other entity type. There are advantages and disadvantages to any structure, and as your operations expand and evolve, your business structure should adapt accordingly.

We welcome you to a roundtable discussion on the use of volunteers and choosing and changing the legal structure of your winery. Topics covered will include:

  • The risks associated with the use of volunteers
  • Types of alternative programs wineries may implement consistent with state and federal wage and hour laws
  • Choosing the best legal business structure to meet your wineries’ unique needs
  • Changing your legal business structure as your operations evolve

Newfound Lake Vineyards sits atop a hill that was once part of a large dairy farm, above the western shores of Newfound Lake in central New Hampshire.

For many generations, my ancestors produced wine in their native Germany. I specialize in wines made from home-grown grapes, as well as locally sourced fresh fruit. As a first generation American, I am excited and proud to bring you high quality New Hampshire-handcrafted wine.

Prosit! To your good health!
