Here we go again. From our headquarters in Paris, new lockdown restrictions have come into force. Wine enthusiasts in France and all around the world, we are here for you – fully operational and ready to ride this rollercoaster with you!
Dear readers, customers, wine enthusiasts,
As many of you know, iDealwine is a proudly French-owned and operated business, with headquarters in Paris. On 28th of October 2020, the French government announced increased restrictions to combat Covid-19.
iDealwine will continue to play its part in combatting this virus – our team is staying safe at home. This is a special message to say that although our movement may be limited, the words we type flow freely – all to ensure your wine can too!
Like in March when we were first confronted with these challenging circumstances, iDealwine will be here every step of the way – ensuring your wine arrives safe and sound of course, but also offering additional safety measures regarding contactless cellar evaluations and sales, pickup and drop off. As more details emerge about the restrictions, we will keep you updated.
The good news is, iDealwine is 100% open for business and is adapting to our “new normal”.
Life (and delivery) goes on
Once again, our team is fully mobilised to help quench your thirst and satisfy your wine enthusiasm. We are infinitely grateful to our wonderful shipping partner Gamba & Rota, who are working round the clock to get your wine into your cellar. We really appreciate your patience and loyalty during this time where delivery may take slightly longer than usual.
Covid-19 has completely changed the way we work – instead of being in the midst of wine fairs, masterclasses, and exclusive tastings – we will adapt and bring the vineyard (virtually) to you. Expect lots of Instagram Lives, virtual tastings, recipes, cellar advice and more! Our team is full of wine lovers brimming with enthusiasm to distract you from Covid restrictions and bring a little, Burgundy-coloured joy into your lockdown life. If you are not affected by restrictions, good for you! Join us on this vinous journey anyway!
Some changes and deadlines to keep in mind
With the Christmas and Holiday season approaching, we would like to remind those wishing to sell their wines with us that November 15th is the last day to do so. There is always a big push for our end of year auctions, so make sure to get in touch before this date to ensure your wine collection will go under the hammer in 2020. iDealwine’s Expertise Team are rolling up their sleeves, they are ready to inspect beautiful bottles – from a safe social distance!
For those wishing to bid on wine – hold your horses! There is still plenty of time! We will let you know all about our Christmas delivery dates in due course.
For customers local to the Paris metropolitan area, our on-site services are still available.
By appointment only and in strict compliance with current health and safety advice, the following is still available:
- Click and collect in Colombes (additional bottle verification by prior request only)
- Click and collect in Paris at 228 Litres
- Cellar drop off in Colombes
- All certificates confirming your appointed slot will be emailed by our Customer Service team
Once your appointment is confirmed, please follow public health guidelines: wear a mask, keep a safe distance, and use hand gel provided.
Wishing you a nice weekend, whatever your local restrictions may be.
