Subject: Buying and shipping wine was ZINE August vacation - Italy/Salzburg
When we went to Italy,(two years ago) the producers could not ship wines, but would assist with packing so you could take it to a shipper yourself.

If you plan to buy wine, check out prices here before you go, especially for those producers who export to the U.S. such as Badia a Coltibuono and Banfi. I bought a case of the 1996 Chianti Riserva from Badia and then found it at home for two dollars less per bottle!
