Biur on Wine/Grape Juice of Shemitta Year

Rabbi Elchanan LewisSivan 3, 5769
567
Question
What is the status of Otzar Beit Din wine/grape juice that has Kedushat Shviit in someone else’s home if one is unsure if they performed biur or not. Is there a certain amount of time one can wait from the biur date of erev Pesach that there is a hazaka that the products in their possession are no longer from before Pesach but are after Pesach?
Answer
Biur Shvi'it [announcing it ownerless] is an obligation on the owner of Shmita produce [like wine]. If however he fails to do so the wine is still kosher and drinkable despite the unfulfilled obligation.
