International wine producers must have a US Importer to submit wines. The Denver International Wine Festival and its parent company are not licensed to import wines.

If you do not have a US importer, we can introduce you to a very reputable importer who can help you file for a COLA Waiver and FDA permit. This is required before you can ship your sample bottles. The process takes 10-14 days. Additional fees apply.

Since your wine submittals to the competition are not for sale, you must mark all cartons "NO CHARGE SAMPLES".

If your US importer is located outside of the state of Colorado, they can forward your wine entries via UPS or FED EX.
