Do I need to pay duty on my wine?

Yes. All carriage, duty, tax and clearance fees MUST be paid by the Submitter. We have been advised that the tax authorities require Import taxes to be paid on Competition samples. Neither Sensible Wine Services nor the Sommelier Wine Awards will be able to settle any unpaid fees or duties. Wines cannot be accepted unless these payments have been paid.

For overseas submitters, we suggest you liaise with your courier or shipping agent for any advice on completion of paperwork and payment of relevant fees.
