why not buy directly at the wineries in France and then use a consolidator for a single shipment? It would be cheaper.

Anyway I have used Santa Fe as a relo company and they did a good job but it didn't involve wines.

The more agitation, temperature changes and pressure changes that a bottle of wine undergoes, the more the wine degrades.

You might be able to find a shipper, but by the time you've gone through Italian Customs and opened your wine, it will have cost a small fortune and will probably not taste anything like what it did when it started out in France.
