Why is ADA Important to Wineries

ADA compliance

At vinSUITE, we believe the internet should be accessible to everyone, that is why we are committed to being your partner in compliance. With the recent demand letters sent to California wineries and lawsuits filed against New York wineries, all wineries should review their websites and apps to ensure compliance.

What is ADA?


The ADA is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. Under Title III of the ADA, any place of “public accommodation,” such as businesses generally open to the public, must provide individuals with disabilities full and equal enjoyment of goods, services, facilities, and accommodations. Places of public accommodation include shops and facilities serving food or drink.

ADA & Wineries


The ADA lawsuits against NY wineries are not unique to the wine industry. ADA guidelines are to be adhered by everyone so that their website is accessible to people with disabilities. Wineries that have tasting rooms, or that allow for tours, tastings, and on-site purchases, need to ensure compliance by using Web Content Accessibility Guidelines WCAG 2.1 AA. Not being ADA compliant can leave you open to potential lawsuits.
