Turning Competitors Into Collaborators
If you are seriously contemplating launching a wineries equipment and supplies business, be sure to speak with somebody who is already in the business. If you think owners of nearby wineries equipment and supplies businesses will give you advice, think again. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?
On the other hand, an individual who has a wineries equipment and supplies business in a location that is not competitive to you can be a great learning resource for you, given that you don't compete with them in their area. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

There are a lot of reasons why it may be preferable to acquire a wineries equipment and supplies business instead of starting a new business venture.
An acquisition isn't necessarily a bed of roses. You'll need to thoroughly evaluate the factors involved with buying a business. First and foremost, it's important to make sure the business is the right fit for your personal and professional goals.
If the business appears to meet your requirements, you'll need to verify your impressions through broker-assisted due diligence and legal research.
