Winework Solutions Brokerage can facilitate the packaging and shipping of wines and equipment procured through our service. The available options vary with the type of product and are detailed below.
For further information, please contact Colin Ford at Winework Solutions.
The prices shown on our brokerage listings are generally INCOterms EXW (Ex-Works). We can assist with providing packaging or freight costs and other INCOterms options, on request.
Bulk wine is transacted by the litre and is generally shipped by tanker or 24,000 litre flexi-tainer for packaging in the destination market. Alternatively, we can arrange for bulk wines to be bottled and packaged to your specifications and transported by GP shipping container.
Tanker or Flexi
Within New Zealand, wine can be tankered by road or rail in any practical volume from 1,000 litres. For export markets, the minimum practical volume is 24,000 litres.
The vendor will pump the wine to tanker or flexi and provide a calibrated volume report. Costs to the buyer are determined by the INCOterms agreed upon between vendor and buyer.
Cleanskins are wines that have been bottled but are unlabelled. Cleanskins can be shipped unlabelled to a New Zealand wine producer or to a New Zealand liquor licence holder. Wines must be correctly labelled before export or sale to a unlicensed entity or consumer. (See labelling guide below).
Alternatively, Winework Solutions can facilitate packaging under the buyer’s brand or one of Winework Solutions brands.
Cleanskins offer the advantage of being available in smaller lots – often as little as one pallet (56 x 12 x 750ml).
Bulk wine or cleanskins (bottled but unlabelled wines) can be packaged and shipped under the buyer’s Private Brand. Winework Solutions can facilitate packaging and provide full costs in advance, based on the agreed INCOterms.
We can arrange bottling as required, label printing, labelling and packaging, along with delivery to your warehouse, freight agent or designated port.

The minimum practical volume for a bottling run is generally 300 cases (300 x 12 x 750ml bottles).
Minimum Order = 1 x 20′ GP. FCL = 840 cases palletized or 1,000 cases free-stacked.
Minimum volume per SKU = 300 cases.
Bulk wine or cleanskins (bottled but unlabelled wines) can be packaged and shipped under any of Winework Solutions’ own appealing, well-designed brands. We can facilitate packaging and provide full costs in advance, based on the agreed INCOterms.
We offer a range of brands and label variants within those brands to suit differing product placements.
Marketing support and brand exclusivity may be available by negotiation.
Practical order volume conditions apply but with cleanskin wines we can often accept orders from one pallet (56 cases).

In general, winery equipment is sold EXW (Ex-Works). Within New Zealand, the vendor will make the equipment secure for road or rail transport but the responsibility for freight and its cost lies with the buyer.
Winework Solutions will work with overseas buyers to ensure that any equipment for export is suitably secured for overseas freight and will assist with logistics advice. Again the responsibility for freight and its cost lies with the buyer.
