Certain grape purchasing arrangements include the purchase of grape production yielded from specified blocks of a vineyard. The actual tonnage and price of grapes that we purchase will vary each year depending on certain factors, including weather, time of harvest, overall market conditions, and the agricultural practices and location of the vineyard. Amounts included herein for the estimated aggregate minimum grape purchase commitments consist of estimates for the purchase of the grapes and the implicit leases of the land. Upon adoption of the new lease guidance on March 1, 2019, certain grape purchasing arrangements classified as leases have not resulted in the recognition of right-of-use assets and lease liabilities on our balance sheet due to their variable nature.
Consists of purchase commitments entered into primarily in connection with the construction of the Mexicali Brewery, and the expansion project for the brewery located in Obregon, Sonora, Mexico (the “Obregon Brewery”).
