Thinking about starting a new winery or a new brand? Make sure you own the domain name.
Do you have an existing winery or brand, make sure you own your domain name. (If a friend, a web developer, or someone else assisted you in purchasing the domain name, make sure the ownership of the domain is in your control)
Also, make sure that you don't let your domain name expire.
Sometimes these things might seem obvious but you would be suprised how many times they are forgotten until too late. (Even large software companies like Microsoft have let their domain names lapse a couple times).
