Advice for importing wine

I've lived in Switzerland (C permit) for 6 years now. Next week I am driving to the UK and I plan to bring back approx 60 bottles of old (good!) wine that I've been storing at my parent's place for many years.

Anyone have any advice how to bring this accross the border? Of course I'll pay the duty if I have to but it would be nice to be prepared.

Cheers (literally)

Re: Advice for importing wine

options
1) drive up to the border and get waved-through
2) drive up to the border and declare them

Read this; it has links to the limits and charges, I believe:

Re: Advice for importing wine

Hi,
I want to start off this importing wine discussion from the start as I didn't find any satisfying answer regarding this issue.

My husband has a very precious collection of wines (about 150 bottles). This is a private collection that he wants to bring in to Switzerland when we move there in August. I wouldn't call this to "import" as it is not a company importing wines as we are not bringing this wine to sell or make money on. We just want to bring the wine for our own pleasure. Anyone who knows anything about the laws of bringing in alcohol from other parts of Europe?
Annette
