    As your from a non EU country you need to find out the duty from the EU country which your are importing to, Its best to contact the tax office from that particular country as the duty will vary from 1 case to1 shipping container

    The import duty, if any, will be the same in all EU countires.

    What will differ is excise duty.

    You will also have to pay import sales tax.

    Without being too pushy, you are not responsible for these import costs and your client is. If they do ot know these answers, I would be worried that they are not the right client!

    I think you need to register for a 'red registration number' before being allowed to export wine. Once in possession of that registration number you will be given the required duty charges
