Q: If the bottle of wine you purchase has an import sticker on it or a barcode sticker, does that devalue the bottle of wine for future sales?--Adam Pearsall

A: No. However, if you are offering a complete case that is composed of identical wines from different shippers, it may not necessarily command as much as one composed of identical wines from the same shipper, as the provenance will not be uniform.
