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?


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.


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.
