Washington Winery Cayuse's Insurer Sues Cork Producer for $3.5 Million

Jan 28, 2020

(Winespectator) - In fall 2017, leading Washington winery Cayuse informed its customers that faulty corks had ruined the majority of its wines from the 2015 vintage. The winery did not release the affected bottles and worked with its insurance company to reimburse its customers. Now its insurer is suing the cork producer, Lafitte Cork & Capsule, for the more than $3.5 million for damages it paid out.

The contamination affected nearly 3,000 cases of 750ml bottles, as well as 2,678 magnums of Cayuse's wines.
