Live Oak Bank is not your ordinary banking partner. We firmly believe that the best way to determine which winery & vineyard financing solutions will fit your business best is by actually visiting your winery or vineyard. Our winery financing experts invest their time in understanding what your business needs, whether that means meeting in a field of grape vines or touring your crush facility.

Owning a winery or vineyard requires a tremendous amount of passion, persistence and expertise. We appreciate the work you’ve done to get to this point. For any winery or vineyard to be successful, you must acquire or grow quality grapes and produce innovative wines that satisfy the diverse palates of today’s wine consumers. Focusing on these essentials requires experience and time, which is why you need to work with partners who are willing to meet you right where you are and invest in your future.
