Winemaker: Ken Forrester

The winemaker and owner Ken Forrester started making wine a little over a decade ago. In ten years, production has increased from an initial 400 boxes to around 85,000. He is now known worldwide as... Mr. Chenin Blanc known. One of his skills is obviously his fine sense of timing. Eleven years ago he bought an abandoned wine farm that had not been used for about six years. This was at a time when the wine industry was in the doldrums, and like a skilled surfer, he almost perfectly caught the wave of expansion in the South African wine industry.

Switzerland - Shipping to the German border area

A cheaper and not much more complex alternative is to have the wine delivered to the German border area and do the customs clearance yourself. You will then receive the German VAT back, have an allowance of 5 liters per person and pay 2 CHF duty for each additional liter.
We also deliver free of charge within Germany for orders over €120. Furthermore, you don't have to coordinate with the courier and make sure someone is there once the delivery arrives.

If you don't have the opportunity to have the goods delivered to friends in the border area, then we can have the wine delivered to a UPS access point near the border near your home. You don't need to register, there are no additional costs and you just have to pick up your wines there within a certain time frame.

There are also various providers of parcel shops from which you can have your parcel picked up for a small fee, e.g. SWISS-PAKET - with branches in Waldshut-Tiengen, Laufenburg, Weil am Rhein, Jestetten & Rheinfelden or EURORETOUR - with branches in Waldshut- Tiengen, Laufenburg, Weil am Rhein & Konstanz.

Upon request, we will send an export receipt, which you can have stamped at customs and sent back to us. We will then refund you the German VAT minus a processing fee of €12.00.

Please note the opening hours of the customs offices! The customs offices usually close on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. and are closed on Sunday! For more information about opening times and customs clearance see
To declare customs, you just drive to the right at the border. You can also easily skip the customs queue and pay with an EC card.
The officials are friendly and you can also get competent information over the phone.

Please note that this form of reimbursement involves costs and effort. Therefore, we generally deduct €12.00 from the VAT amount to be reimbursed for this expense.

Under certain conditions, postal items transported within the EU may also be checked. To this end, the customs authorities are allowed to have postal items opened and check whether they contain goods that are subject to excise duty or whose import, transit or export violate legal prohibitions and restrictions. The secrecy of letters and mail is restricted in this respect. If you receive goods subject to excise duty, you are generally obliged to report this to the responsible customs office and pay duties if necessary.
