Why should you buy Pre-Arrival from Saratogawine.com?

We've been there… you try and order a specific or unique bottle of Bordeaux or Burgundy online, and you either can't find it, the price is outrageous, or the store cannot provide the provenance to ensure you're getting what you paid for. That's why we went through the trouble of establishing the Pre-arrival sales tool to ensure that you can purchase great wines, at incredible prices, from France, Italy, and other fine wine regions around the world. The Pre-Arrival wines that we list on our site are priced and selected to provide you with the best deal, provenance, and options on the market. No one beats our selection and prices on items you can order directly from Europe.

We are here to help you select the best wine possible regardless of price.
We offer unlimited and unfiltered access to the finest wine in the world – at the best price possible.

Pre-Arrival Investment

Fine wine is one of the most sought after investments in todays market.
Year after year, blue-chip wine investments outperform the most notable financial investment funds*.

However, provenance is of the utmost importance, and just like stocks, buying low maximizes returns. We've taken all the work out of hunting down deals and offer elite blue-chip Bordeaux, most often at the lowest pricing in the market. Since we procure directly from the source and control all aspects of the supply chain, we can ensure that your investment is of impeccable provenance and authenticity.

 

We are not financial investment portfolio specialists. Please use a professional financial advisor when needed. Wine investing is a personal decision.  

How it Works

Pre-arrival selections are notated by a red   Pre-Arrival   banner on each product listing. At this time,   case purchases are required. However, we often offer multiple options of case sizes, of the same exact wine, which may be identified by duplicate buying options on our website. So whether you're looking for 3, 6, or 12 bottles we can accommodate, as long as the wineries packed them in the requested size and case pack.

If you decide to purchase both a pre-arrival selection and a selection of  locally available products, your order will be split between two separate checkouts. To adjust either, click on the gray "switch to this order" button to toggle between the two.

Once you place your order, our buying team immediately places the order with the overseas supplier. A hard confirmation can take upwards of 72 hours due to time zone differences. A hold is placed on your card but not fully charged till we receive a hard confirmation.

Once the order is confirmed, sit back and relax. We've got it from here. You'll receive a notification when the wine is ready to ship. Upon receiving the notification, you'll have seven days to select a shipping option and date.

Difference between Pre-Arrival and sourcing

These terms are often used interchangeably, yet they all have different meanings. Items that Saratogawine.com lists as pre -arrival  are  confirmed   available by our suppliers before we list them online and offer them to you. 


Sourcing, on the other hand, can be a speculative term. Often, retailers will offer customers selections and try to  SOURCE   them but   availability is NOT confirmed . They will take an order, then go about finding it, and that is NOT what we do at Saratogawine.com . We allow you, the consumer, to buy fine wine directly from Europe.
