Wine Cover

Like a work of art or a piece of precious jewellery, a fine bottle of wine can also be insured, as part of your home and contents insurance.


We understand that your collection is more than just bottles; it's an expression of your taste, a celebration of the arts, and an investment that deserves the highest level of insurance. Whether you're an enthusiast, a connoisseur or an avid collector or investor, we offer coverage for your precious wine collection as part of our Masterpiece policy.

Individualised coverage*

We offer flexible, worldwide coverage options to meet your unique needs. Cover an entire collection with blanket coverage, itemise your individual bottles, or do both. It’s up to you.

Optional cash settlement*

In the unfortunate event that your wine is irreparably damaged, lost or stolen, you can choose to take cash up to the sum insured rather than replacing if it suits you better.

Paying market value*

In certain cases, we’ll pay more than the amount itemised on your policy to account for increases in market value.

Coverage for mechanical breakdown*

We provide coverage for wine which has been damaged due to loss of power supply or mechanical breakdown of climate control equipment.

*These benefits are not included in all Chubb home insurance policies. Speak to your insurance broker to find out which product is right for you.

You should consider purchasing a home insurance policy that includes wine coverage if you own a collection of wine that would be costly to replace, or if you're in possession of rare or valuable bottles. Wine insurance can provide an additional layer of protection for your investment against unforeseen risks.

Determining your insurance requirements involves evaluating the value of your collection, the risks it's exposed to, and what you would be willing and able to pay out-of-pocket in the event of a loss. An insurance broker can assist you in this process to ensure you have the right level of coverage for your needs.

Properly caring for your wine collection involves maintaining optimal storage conditions, such as temperature and humidity control, keeping bottles stored horizontally, and avoiding exposure to light and vibration. Additionally, proper inventory management and regular valuation are key to ensure your collection is adequately insured by your policy.
