Vineyards, Wineries, Breweries, and Cideries

As Virginia’s wine, beer, and cider industry continues to expand, we enjoy serving many clients in this exciting business. A mix of agriculture and manufacturing, wineries and similar entities have immense opportunities and face huge challenges. We take pride in operating as Virginia’s premier accounting practice in this industry. In fact, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services gave us a grant to perform a cost and profitability analysis for Virginia wineries.

We understand the economics of this industry and offer clients insights and counsel they cannot find elsewhere. We know which questions to ask and where to look for efficiencies. 

Our Vineyard, Winery, Brewery, and Cidery Services Include:

Accounting and Tax Treatment Consulting
Your business may involve agribusiness, alcohol manufacturing, or both. We have the accounting and tax experience to assist you with the varied and often complicated business matters associated with both types of operations.

Cost and Profitability Studies
We help you determine important factors such as the true cost of your product and how to price it, whether to use a distributor or sell at retail, the best strategies to attract customers, and more.

Start-Up Consulting
The choices you make early in the life of your company have a major impact moving forward. We can help you navigate your options, including which form of business to choose.

Tax Credit Consulting
The Virginia Farm Winery and Vineyard tax credit provides a significant income tax credit for qualified capital expenditures. We can help you determine if you qualify for this credit.
