St. Helena, Calif. – A new wine shipping company, Out Of The Box, has opened in St. Helena, CA on Dowdell Lane. One of the few fulfillment locations in the northern end of Napa Valley, Out Of The Box offers DTC fulfillment to wineries for wine club and daily wine shipments. The company is owned by John and Nat Komes in partnership with April Damron. 

“For wineries that want to confidently grow DTC sales and capabilities, Out Of The Box provides seamless fulfillment solutions, making the complicated, easy,” says Owner Nat Komes. "The difference is our team, a group of industry veterans from both warehousing and winery sales and marketing sectors with valuable expertise in all areas of DTC and customer service." 

Specializing in club and daily shipments, Out Of The Box works creatively with winery clients and is poised to facilitate special requests such as rush orders, gift cards, custom packing and kitting, will-call preparations for convenient pick up, as well as summer solutions. For its fulfillment and warehouse software platform, Out of the Box relies on FORT Systems, an award winning, multi-tenant 3PL platform with a focus on beverage alcohol. Through multiple APIs, FORT enables seamless integration with key wine industry companies, such as ShipCompliant, Commerce 7, WineDirect, Vinespring, OrderPort, E-cellar, and several others.
