    Hi folks, new to the Forum.
    I currently live in South-West France and have built up a good relationship with local vineyards who produce fantastic wines. I am returning to the UK at the end of the year with the aim to recruit some clients.
    All being well I would like to import wine to the UK in the new year. It's the business side of things that is confusing and I'm hoping that some of you have experience/expertise in this type of enterprise. Must I have a business set up here (in France) as well as registered in the UK to import wines?
    Any help with the intricacies of this is greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks,
    Peter

    I don't think so at the moment. After Brexit who knows.

    Official government advice on importing alcohol is here.

    Hi Peter,

    We store and order process lots of alcohol from the EU and beyond. PM me your contact details and I'm happy to guide you through the processes.
