Full Services and Pricing for Italy

Important Considerations

Shipping wine to someone in Italy is not easy, but it can be done successfully if adequately prepared.

Three key requirements

  1. The Recipient (someone who lives in Italy) must pay a €50 “Sanitation Brokerage Fee” per shipment by regulations. Even if it is a gift, the Sender is not allowed to pay this fee for the Recipient.
  2. The Recipient's phone number is required. The Customs Agency will contact the Recipient by phone to pay the above fee.
  3. The destination address must be a residential address; no business address allowed.

Pricing Considerations

Gliding Eagle Full Service Fee is calculated based on the declared value of the wines, as it includes the Customs Duties & Taxes (D/T) to be pre-paid. The D/T rate is approximately 22% of the wine value.

Volume Limit per Shipment

There is a  volume limit of 4.5 liters (6x 750ml bottles) per shipment into Italy. We will make split weekly shipments to clear customs for higher volumes.
