Pre-arrival wines and wine futures

As a long-standing leader in the wine retail business, we've developed an industry leading pre-arrival program featuring many of the wine world's greatest names, as well as uncounted new discoveries, many appearing in the United States for the first time through our channels. We secure these wines directly through select agents in Europe with whom we’ve had long-term relationships. Our orders are confirmed and the wines are paid for. We are generally able to land the wines within four to six months after securing them, at which time we will contact you to arrange for pick-up or delivery. The advantage to buying on pre-arrival is to secure a wine whose availability is scarce and/or to lock in a generally lower pre-arrival price. By going directly to the source, we are able to obtain larger quantities of highly allocated wines than would otherwise be possible. For more detailed information and complete terms and conditions of our pre-arrivals program, please click [HERE].
