Receiving your Shipping Supplies

We send shipping supplies to you, free of charge, once you place your order.

Please make sure to send us your samples in a tightly sealed container per the “Wine and Beer Sample Shipping Preparation” instructions. Be sure to mark each sample, marking such as “Merlot A” or “Merlot B” are sufficient as long as you know which sample is which. The more detail the better.

*If you are sending an entire bottle, please let us know in the Customer Notes section during checkout.*

The Shipping Supplies includes everything below, with the number of tubes and size of the box based on how many tests you purchase:

• Cardboard box for returning the shipment
• 50mL or 15mL conical tubes (one for each analysis or two if the analysis requires a 100 mL sample)
• Vinmetrica Labs Conical tube labels
• Gel pack and Styrofoam container (for certain sample analyses, if sample requires being kept cold)

Once you have prepared your sample from the ‘Wine & Beer Sample Shipping Preparation’ instructions, make sure to attach a shipping label to the top of the cardboard box and ship to the address below. Please write on the box “For Laboratory Analysis Only”.
