EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants

Transaction Further Builds and Strengthens Retail Broker’s Wine Industry Specialty Practice

(SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.) — NEWS: EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants, a retail property, casualty insurance brokerage and employee benefits consultant, announced today the purchase of a retail wine industry book of business from Managing General Agency (MGA) Paragon Insurance Holdings LLC. The accounts in question came to Paragon in the fall of 2017 when they acquired wine industry specialist John Sutak Insurance Brokers, along with two winery programs from the Argo Group.

The purchase underscores EPIC’s commitment to further growing their wine industry client relationship and becoming a leading provider of risk management and insurance services to wineries across the country.

Said EPIC Wine Industry Practice Leader Michael McNulty, “Given our roots in California and the West, we have long served grape growers, wine producers and others in the business across the region. The addition of Paragon’s direct retail wine industry clients is a true ‘win, win, win’ for all involved.

“EPIC further grows and strengthens an important area of specialty, Paragon sharpens their focus on their core MGA and Programs business, and the wineries in question gain the strong representation, industry expertise, service excellence, and aggressive client advocacy that have been hallmarks of EPIC since our founding.”

Michael McNulty can be reached at or 415-356-3909.
