HOW TO PACK
For businesses shipping wine using the pallet delivery service, we suggest following the packaging steps below:
Depending on the countries of collection and delivery, different rules may apply. Generally, freight shipments of wine bottles delivered by licensed transport companies are perfectly legal and are even covered by CMR insurance. Authorised businesses can also send single wine bottles via courier services when selling to their customers, which is usually done under special agreements with the transporter.
Sending and receiving wine by mail or courier from e-commerce sites is legal. However, when it comes to shipping wine in Europe, the UK or internationally as an individual, it is worth noting that most courier companies include alcoholic drinks on their list of restricted and prohibited items. Despite this restriction, many people still send wine internationally as a gift in the post or by courier at their own risk. We recommend checking the courier rules and the regulations of the pick-up and delivery countries in advance.
