What is Pre-arrival Wine?

Long Term Pre-arrival Definition: Ordering wine directly through us from our supplier partners in Europe in advance of the item’s physical arrival in the US. Long Term Pre-arrival sales ensure you’re getting the best possible price and that you have also secured the product before it hits the normal retail supply chain. The lead time for Pre-arrival goods is generally 4–8 months, sometimes longer based on supply chain and the logistics of transporting goods overseas. Before and after arrival the logistics company that handles the importing of the product will satisfy all customs needs and ensure that we are fully compliant with all federal and state regulations. The expectation, from our team, is to communicate to the customer the location of their purchase every step of the way.

Why should I buy Long Term Pre-arrival?

Since the product is being sourced directly from producers or suppliers, the prices can be significantly less expensive than traditional sourcing methods. Additionally, the selection available from Pre-arrivals is much broader, and since they are coming directly from the wineries and Chateau’s the provenance is without comparison.
