Offering Updates – June 14, 2011

Here is the first of our bi-weekly postings on upcoming Hemispheres Shipments where we will provide insight on the logistics of the offerings and updates on the timing of the offerings.

We will start with the Summer Wine Offering from Rioja, Spain. Marcus visited this storied region and selected 7 unique and premium bottles for our members. The initial steps involve a lot of paperwork and having the wines registered with the various liquor boards. This is followed by Purchase Orders being created for the suppliers, again with each individual liquor board. These steps have all been completed.

The wines are now on the second phase of their journey into our members’ cellars. This is the transport from Spain into Canada which is done via Ocean Freight. Our next update will provide some information about the final phases involved and a more precise date on when the wine is expected to land in Canada.
