Digital Imaging:

We strive to earn the faith of our customers and aspire to be the most reliable source for rare wine on the Internet. If you are concerned about the condition of your purchase, EWR can provide digital photos upon request to ensure customer satisfaction prior to the sale.

Maintaining the Authenticity of Your Wine

The principals of EWR are also collectors, so we understand that provenance and the integrity of your collection is important to you. Many collectors enjoy storing their wine in original containers. When possible, we are happy to send them to you. We can provide original wood cases and containers for items that are indicated as OWC and OC, under the notes column in the inventory section of our website. Original wood cases and containers are available for purchases by the case only. We will not provide original containers for partial orders and original cases are not available for sale separately.

Original wood cases and containers are unsuitable to safely transport wine by common carrier and must be shipped separately. If you would like to request that the original container be shipped with your order, please indicate this in the “special instructions” section at the bottom of your order form at checkout, or simply contact us by telephone or email.
