Frequently Asked Questions
Do you ship to my country?
We ship everywhere except Canada, and do our best to ship in ways that will avoid inspection by customs. We cannot guarantee that your local Customs office does not inspect your package and apply local duties or seize your package. We cannot estimate the amount of these duties.
How much does it cost to ship my wine?
We ship with DHL Germany. Please note that shipping rates are subject to change.
How do you ship my wine?
We ship your wine in DHL-Certified wine boxes made of thick recycled cardboard and padded internally with recycled paper. We do not use plastic or styrofoam packaging. We have only experienced few breakage incidents to date (like when the Czech Post decided it was OK to play football with a package).
Is it safe to ship natural wine abroad?
Yes, most of the time. Between the thick glass bottle and the cardboard packaging, the wine is well insulated enough to resist external temperatures common in the northern Hemisphere from September to May for the duration of the shipment. We reserve caution, however, when shipping outside of Europe in the summer months. We will accept your order and ask if it is OK to delay the shipment until cooler weather approaches.
