1. Liability Release.
I choose to participate voluntarily in the Vineyard Tour. I understand that touring vineyards involves being in remote areas for extended periods of time, far from communication, transportation, and medical facilities; that these areas have many natural and man-made hazards which cannot be anticipated, identified, modified or eliminated. I further understand that vineyard touring involves such things as walking across uneven or steep terrain, potential exposure to chemicals and fertilizers employed in vineyard management and care, walking along unpaved roads, encountering vehicles transporting workers in the vineyards, all of which makes vineyard touring a hazardous activity that could result in injury to me or in my death. I understand these risks and voluntarily assume them and the concomitant dangers.
I am fully aware and acknowledge that participating in a vineyard tour involves inherently dangerous risks of accident or serious bodily injury, including tripping, falling, broken bones, head injuries, pain, suffering or even death (hereinafter referred to collectively as “Harm”) to me.
I hereby assume the risk of Harm relating to my participation in the Vineyard Tour and I release Sutro and Warnecke, their Managers, Members, General Partners, Limited Partners, shareholders, directors, officers, contractors, agents and employees from all claims for money damages or otherwise for any Harm arising from or related to my participation in the Vineyard Tour.
I understand that I am responsible for any medical expenses or other expense incurred as a result of bodily injury or property damage I may suffer on the Vineyard Tour.
