Grower contracts are a global feature for wineries that have more than one Bonded Winery. Each Grower may have multiple contracts, with contract terms defined for unlimited grape varieties and vintage years. Grower contracts, grape receipts and payments are associated. The contract detail includes the pricing structure, which determines the price of every grape receipt.
The system captures haulage fees, broker fees, roadside freight and state inspection fees as part of the pricing calculation. User defined fees may be established and utilized on a per ton, per $1,000 or flat dollar amount.
The grower payments are calculated automatically according to receipt data and the contract year, variety and block. Revisions to grape receipts allow for re-calculation of contract payments and grape costs.
The contract payment system issues checks, remittance advice reports and statements. Advance payments and manual checks are also supported. An inquiry of grower payables in detail or summary is available as are aging reports and cash flow views of liabilities. An interface to the Vintners Advantage Financial Management module is provided.
