Subhash Arora Says:

Too complex to answer just like that. In prinicple, anyone can import. You need to have a bonded warehouse or an arrangement, For selling you need a license or appoint a distributor who has one. Most important-you need to have marketing strength to sell the product.

Posted @ August 02, 2016 12:30

 

Subhash Arora Says:

In theory, its possible, but in practice, not advisable. You can import as samples maybe 12 bottles at a time. But you may have to pay customs duty most, if not at all, times. Courier charges are extra. So it becomes expensive. You can import larger number by sea but the taxes and registration are again very high. It is best to check out the Retail and get some discounts for buying a case at a time. In most places discounts are possible, except Delhi. Subhash Arora

I will be relocating to Delhi from my home, Brisbane for a couple of years. I prefer to buy and consume the drink that I like - mostly Australian and New Zealand wines.

Subhash Arora Says:

Two bottles are actually allowed. I think I will file an RTI to find the information. They are not supposed to ask for the bill. I guess next time you should tell him quietly to confiscate it and give you a receipt. I know by air if you travel you can carry 5 liters.When you travel by road you are allowed 1 liter out-of-state.

Subhash Arora Says:

Although red wine is decidedly better from health standpoint but the difference between red and white has not been found to be so vast that I recommend it is best to drink what you like-men or women. 30 mL is like taking a medicine and is neither here nor there-unless you are tasting wine. I won't recommend it. I would suggest 125 mL (6 glasses to a standard botlle) to 150 mL (5 glasses to a normal bottle) of wine of choice for the ladies-preferably red and preferably with food. It should enhance the food experience and if it helps remaining healthy, why not! BTW, wine is no substitute for daily exercise. Subhash Arora

Subhash Arora Says:

Thanks for the compliments Harpreet. But why do you want to set up in Rajasthan? Although if you do the proper analysis of soil and climate, you might have a goldmine in hand. License is issued by State Excise Department. I suggest you contact them in Jaipur. Even if you don't get approval initially, you will eventually get it for wine. But first go and visit several wineries, taste their wines and see what you are getting into. Check out the market in Rajasthan. Try to get excise free as in Maharashtra and Karnataka. Only then proceed. Good luck. Subhash Arora

Subhash Arora Says:

Sending samples of wine is quite feasible. One may or may not have to pay duty on them. I have received samples of 12 bottles in my house and at times I have had to pay duty on 2!! Depends on the whims of the customs guys. But I have found that for genuine samples they are pretty decent. Selling is of course, another ball game altogether. I hope you get some positive answers from some of our readers though I won't be too optimistic. Subhash Arora

Hello Wine guru aka Mr.Subash, Greetings!! I am planning to bring a new brand of wine in India. While I have already have the brochures and literature of the company mailed to me in parcel, how could I go about having them send me sample bottles. They are ready to send but I just want to check if there are any laws pertaining the same. I assume, I simply can't just have them send me the samples as it is alcohol. Also, besides the plans that are in my mind, what ideas would you suggest to go about marketing this brand across India? I can be reached at daysachin@gmail.com If anyone can contribute to this topic, feel free to do so. If you need my phone number, please email me and i'll send it on there. Thank you! -sachinn

Subhash Arora Says:

Your friends are right. What is important is the volume of alcohol going into your system. For instance if there is 42% alcohol in a 150-mL glass filled with whisky that has 1 part whisky and 2 parts water/ice, it will have the same alcohol as 150mLglass of wine with 14% alcohol. Although wine has natural alcohol and has many benefits, the negative effects would be same-especially when you drink more than 2 glasses. Wine has additionally anti oxidants though. Arora

There is no study done on hair growth that I know of but yes-red wine is definitely good for the skin. You may use wine instead of water to make any kind of face pack or use it by itself. If you have access to the must after fermentation-that is grapes left after crushing-that is even better. Today, cosmetic companies are doing it already in Italy and France at least. Subhash Arora

Subhash Arora Says:

Fruit wines like peach are meant to be drunk young. They don't age and get better like many grape wines. They should be consumed within a year. I think your wine would still be ok-if you stored it properly. I suggest you drink it up. Once it is opened, the bottles should best be finished the same night but if you quickly seal it back and put in the fridge, it would be ok for the next couple of nights. Cheers. Subhash Arora

Anant Mishra Says:

Hello I am Anant contacting you from New Zealand. Well i am a Indian citizen and over here in NZ i am in a contact with 2-3 wine makers who have their own vineyards and they operate domestically. I encouraged them and they are interested to export the wine to India and china . I believe that NZ wine is good in taste and is competitive and can make a good place in Indian market in next 5-10 years. Can you guys suggest me that how I can enter the market representing these NZ made wines or any business strategy that can help in making a good place in Indian wine market in future. Thank you Regards Anant Mishra

Subhash Arora Says:

Hi Hari, Canada makes perhaps the best ice wine- real amrit, as I like to say. Unfortunately, in India, dessert wines have not caught on. I don’t see good future in the short term but with perseverance, a good niche market is possible. High cost due to taxes is another inhibitor. In a perfect world, a glass of icewine at the end of a meal in a hotel/ restaurant would be divine. Unfortunately, it costs an arm and a leg with their present pricing policies. Subhash Arora

Hari Says:

Hello Subhash, Your articles on the Indian Wine Academy are very insightful and I love reading them. I am in Ontario, Canada in a region well know for wine production, especially Ice Wines. Can you throw some light over prospects of Ice Wine in India. Do you see a scope for it to pick up in the near future?

Subhash Arora Says:

I am afraid there are no recognised wine correspondence courses that will further your wine career. At the end, it is wine tastings that are more important and that is not possible through correspondence. There is plety of material available on the Net- including tests etc. Please visit as often and to as many reputed websites as possible. In fact, even indianwineacademy.com has more useful and relevant information than a correspondence course would. Read as much or as little as you can, followed by tastings. If you want to do a course, wait till you can attend a structured course. Subhash Arora

Subhash Arora Says:

There would be many who would put you on total abstinence. Denmark has done several studies and their national diet prescribes 4 glasses (125 mL each) a week max, but no more than one ever night. I have talked to many women in iIaly. They usually take 2 glasses a week-but not on the same evening. I'd say 2- 4 glasses a week of red wine is fine, Try to drink wines with lower alcohol- up to 12.5 or 13% Subhash Arora

Dear Arun, The key is getting the permission from the excise department as the policies are very strict in Chennai. I suggest you try for Indian wines only in the first attempt. You will need some running around but at the end if you are successful, the rewards would of sweet success would be memorable. Please give it all you have- Once you have this in place I can try to tell some pf the producers to extend you as much support as possible.  DelWine will certainly support you in your endeavour. Good luck, Subhash Arora

Hi Mike,
You misspelt slightly- it is Torciano. Drinking well now. I would say it is at its peak. If stored well, it will be ok for 3-5 years more. But I doubt if it would get any better. You might have read an article on the website: http://www.delhiwineclub.com/guest_column/Tuscan_Torciano.aspx?serialwise=977
Drink up and Enjoy. Cheers,
Subhash Arora

I have a Brunello Di Montalcino 2003 Tociano(DOCG). Was wondering if I need to worry about a "peak" time for opening the bottle. What is your opinion of this as well?

Dear Anu, I cannot tell you where the wine is available in India or how much it costs, but red wine is certainly good for heart. I suggest a glass or two of red wines-daily. Prefereably with food-but NOT to be taken as medicine. he must enjoy it. Any imported or Indian wine would do. If he does not drink alcohol right now, please do not force him. Red wine is one of the things-certaily good for heart-but not the only thing. I wish him well. Cheers, WineKnightIndia

Dear Umesh and Beena,
Import duties are same throughout India and from anywhere in the world- 150%  on the assessable value which is CIF +1%. Additionally there are Special duties  of 4% which are refundable (not an easy job!). Then there is an educational cess of around 3%. Importers usually take 160% in their calculations. Then there are Octroi duty for Mumbai and Excise duties'
 which is complicated and different for each state- many of which you will find in our website. To get in tabulated form you will need to pay unncecessarily to us.

Then there is 20% VAT on the total cost, including all overheads and margins. France gets no special treatment. Do not forget the license fee and label registration charges which are additional for each state. There are no duties for export of wines. Hotels and restaurants get the benefit of no import customs duty for 5% of the foreign exchange earnings in the previous years (not cash) but excise duties are payable at par with others. Arora

Do you know what are the charges on import and export of French wines in Mumbai. All the information I am getting is old/outdated and not helpful. You are the wine expert so it is over to you. Thx Beena

Umesh Kalro

Dear Mr Subhash arora We are interested to import wines in India. Kindly advise us formalities for importing in Maharashtra and Delhi. We understand the import duties are 150 %, But we are not clear for import license and excise for each region. appreciate your help to enlighten this thank you yours sincerely Umesh

Wine is definitely a career for option. But she must be thoroughly interested in it. I suggest you take her for wine tastings like the one going on over this weekend at the Radio
Club, Bandra a couple of weeks ago and the one by Upper Crust next month. There are no standard courses right now in India so I suggest she does Hotel Management and carry on wine studies on the side. www.indianwineacademy.com is a good site to learn. There are plenty more on the Net. Cheers

Hi, My daughter is a science student (PCM) and is appearing in her XII borad coming March. I'm wondering if she can have something contemporary, exciting, challenging and rewarding career. Wine tasting is one of them, but am really clueless. May I seek your consultation on the subject. Regards, Sangeeta Mubai

This is like saying , 'I like Ramayan- please tell me more about it!' In short, Wine is the healthiest lifestyle drink that has some alcohol and it enhances the flavour of the food. It has immense health benefits, if taken in moderation regularly. Drink white wine chilled and red cool at max of 18 deg C.Check out more on our websites www.indianwineacademy.com and www.delhiwineclub.com. if you have any specific questions or doubt, you are welcome to contact me.
