Corked by Customs

Posted by The Wine Whore |

Ever want wine shipped to you from another country, like Spain?

Here's how it will go...

  • Shipper in Spain will package a few bottles to be sent to your home
  • Shipper sends package through USPS and marks box as wine samples
  • Customs agents receive your wine, realize what it is, and drink it
  • Three months later, you'll get a letter in the mail informing you that your wine was "destroyed" in transit
  • You'll be really pissed off!

If you're shipping wine internationally, mark the package as something customs won't want to touch such as "vaginal creme", "toenail clippings", or "used jockstraps"

... otherwise, you're just asking for it!

It would have been classic if the letter had some Rioja stains on it!

No fun at all. THREE (3) months? Maybe DHL/UPS/FedEx is a better option?
