Frequently asked questions

En Primeur refers to the process of buying wines before they are bottled and released onto the market. Wines are purchased exclusive of Duty and VAT and then usually shipped 2-3 years after the vintage.  They can only be purchased by the unmixed case.

The biggest advantage of buying wine futures is price. The En-Primeur price of a wine is almost always lower than the release price on the market. Buying wine futures also allows you to buy the most highly demanded wines that may be virtually impossible to find when they are released on the market in a variety of different formats such as half bottles, magnums and larger-sized bottles.
At Vintage we can assist you according to your tastes, requirements and budget to choose your En-Primeurs wines, then store your wines in the best storage conditions and deliver them when and where you wish.

Each year the En primeur campaign takes place end of May, early June until end of June.

When the vintage is bottled and delivered to the Vintage Collector warehouse in Europe, the cases are held initially in a bonded warehouse. This means that no duty or VAT has been paid on the wine. If you request the wine to be delivered to you then duty and VAT will be payable by you in addition to the price depending on your country of delivery. If you wish to keep the wine in bond, please discuss your requirements with our team.

We will remain responsible for insuring the wine at the original invoice value until your delivery has been completed. Ownership of the wines will pass on settlement of all outstanding charges.

En primeur bottles are delivered 2 to 3 year after the release, i.e. the vintage 2018 will be available from mid 2021.

The payment takes place during the En primeur campaign to secure your order.

The delivery costs are not included in your order.
