Greg Martellotto, owner of Big Hammer Wines, a leading DTC (direct to consumer) online wine retailer, explains.

“The most important factor when considering purchasing en primeur is trust. If you’re going to buy wine that won’t be delivered for several years, you want to know your money is safe and you’ll receive the wine. There is no shortage of stories of people not receiving the wine they paid for nor a refund. I’ve seen numerous scandals over the years. BHW has been selling online since 2009 and we pride ourselves on our excellent reputation.”
