It’s official, Seattle is officially the WORST place to ship wine to from Europe in the lower 48! Steamship Line consolidations and other ‘market forces’ have made even Portland better than here. As an example, my last container from France took 3 weeks to get to Portland, then another week to Seattle, then – and this is truly appalling – it took a week to get the can out of NW Container and deliver it to my door! A week, for three lousy miles! While 'they' don't make it easy for me, I continue to make it easy for you, providing unique, authentic and acclaimed wines at unbeatable prices. So in a sense, my suffering becomes your satisfaction when you enjoy a bottle from MILLESIME - it's what all the hair-pulling and frustration are about! Thanks for your support!
