Loans to Expand Your Winery: Low Fee Vineyard Equipment Finance Approved
An Australian vineyard and winery were at a crossroads when they approached us. They could either expand production and increase sales or keep the winery running as is and fall short of demand. The most significant driving factor was finance. Would they be able to secure appropriate equipment financing for the purchase of three 10,000L stainless steel wine vats? They needed a loan (or loans) that allowed them to make lump-sum re-payments and pay off the loan early without incurring hefty fees. As 10,000L stainless steel wine vats cost at least between $10k to $15k each plus shipping(*1), high interest or fees would have made a standard loan financially unviable.

High-Quality Vineyard and Winery Equipment Finance
Commercial Financing Solutions for All Business Types
No matter what type of business you run, quality equipment is essential to maintaining efficiency and safety. If you make or store any consumable products, using only food-safe equipment would be paramount to your business success. However, this often means equipment purchases are higher. When our client approached us for financing to purchase top of the line wine tanks, we immediately understood that the quality of the vats was important.
Does the Quality of the Equipment Impact Loan Approval Success?
Yes. When we take your loan application to a funder, we will make a case for why your chosen equipment is essential for the future success of your business. In the case of our winery client, food-safe certified stainless steel tanks were essential. Using sub-par equipment would have increased the risk of wine spoiling or becoming contaminated.
When you are replacing outdated equipment, or are looking to expand production, remember that financing approvals depend on a range of factors(*2). Chat to us about what you need to purchase and why. There is a range of different finance options available – all with varying criteria and conditions(*3). We will guide you in securing a loan that suits your budget, immediate business needs, and long-term financial goals.
