A message from the owner about European tariffs
Dear valued customer;
As you may know, the United States Government has issued tariffs on French, Spanish, and German still wines under 14% alcohol . At this point, Champagne, Italian wines, wines over 14% alcohol, and wines 2 liters or more are exempt. We have been following these proposed changes in the imposition of tariffs closely in the hopes the imposition of these new tariffs would not occur, and/or would be further delayed. In preparation for this change, we used our best efforts to bring in as many containers as we could before the upcoming governmental change. Also, we were able ship via air, at our cost, a container that arrived earlier this week. Unfortunately, our sea shipment that is arriving later in the month could not be expedited and will get hit by the new tariffs. In an effort to minimize the impact of the tariffs on our customers wines, we prioritized bringing in still wines from France, Germany, and Spain. Unfortunately, the majority of our Champagne and Italian wines will be delayed until after the new year. Rest assured, all of the champagne and wines in Europe are being stored in a temperature-controlled environment and have been paid for by us. We will continue to selectively sell French, German, and Spanish wines whether it be wines we own, are bringing in ourselves, or from local suppliers.
With the amount of wine we currently have in our warehouse, the shipping department will be very busy. We would appreciate if you would accommodate us if we reach out to you regarding shipping wines due to the volume in our back room. If you are unable to receive a shipment at this time, we would appreciate it if you could provide us with a future shipping date. Due to the high volume of shipments, we may not have time to send an exact list of your wines before your order is packed. We would appreciate it if we could ship all of your wines that are currently in stock, and we will send you a list once the shipment has left the building. Thank you all for your patience and your continued support during this period.
Naturally, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
