WINE SHIPPING

Love the wine you are tasting, and want to ship it home?

How often do you taste wine abroad and realise that the wine can’t be shipped back home?

Most boutique wineries do not ship wine outside of Europe, and Tannin Trail is one of the only wine tour companies in Europe that can legally ship personal wine shipments back to the USA.

Most often, even if the European cellar has an official distributor or store in the USA, the per bottle price will still be higher, even with the shipping. The other advantage is that you can mix cases between different wines from different cellars, this isn’t possible even if the cellar is able to ship wine themselves.

We are registered as wine exporters, and have a network of distributors that allow us to ship any wine back to your doorstep, not only anywhere in Europe, but to the USA, Japan & Hong Kong. For any other destinations, please enquire.

SHIPPING AFTER YOUR VISIT?

Have you already returned home after your wine tasting in Europe, and are desperate to ship the wine you tasted? No problem, contact us and we will arrange the wine shipping for you from the wine cellars you visited. We can ship from any cellar across Spain, France or Italy.

SHIPPING RATES

Tannin Trail do not add any commission on the wine prices, you pay the same rate as you would at the wine cellar.

Rates are for European cases, or 6 bottles with 750ml capacity per bottle with a total volume not exceeding 4,5L of wine. Certain destinations charge import duty and/or taxes, and these are mostly included in the shipping rate, however some countries have much higher rates and these may have to be declared seperately (especially for Norway and Japan, for example).

DESTINATION OUR TANNIN TRAIL RATE* NORMAL UPS/Fedex RATE
Europe From 35€ From 35€
USA 98€** From 140€***
OTHER POA N/A

*Our shipments also include re-packing the shipment to protect the bottles, as well as temperature controlled warehousing, these options are not available with regular or cheaper courier services.
**Our shipments to the USA include all duty & taxes.
***All shipments by other courier services to the USA exclude import taxes and duty, and also require a mandatory import permit, and will only be delivered to licensed commercial addresses. No personal shipments will be accepted by any other courier service from Europe to the USA. The old trick of declaring your wine shipment as “olive oil” does not work anymore either, and still costs significantly more to courier.
