I import Yarden wine into SA. Its a hobby. Are there any issues that I need to consider about selling non mevushal wine? If the bottles remain sealed (unopened) is there any problem with a non-Jew handling the bottle or looking at the bottle?

Answer:

There is no problem in this and you don’t have to be concerned about the distribution of and handling of sealed wine.

Best wishes.

Sources:

There is no prohibition of selling wine, mevushal or not, to anybody — unless he is a non-Jew that we know is going to use it for idolatrous practices. This is of course not the standard buyer.

A non-Jew’s handling of a sealed bottle is also not a problem; the seal is a certain indication that the wine has not been touched.
