We accept online orders for wine shipping to most states. However, because of the three-tier system (producer, wholesaler, retailer) through which most alcoholic products must pass in the United States, and due to evolving direct-shipping laws and regulations, distribution and shipping of alcoholic products can be complicated and the list of states and areas within those states that we ship to varies and may change at any time. We will contact you by email if your order is negatively affected by new shipping regulations. Currently we do not ship to the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Utah.
It is our goal to process and ship all orders as quickly as possible. Most orders will be processed within 24-48 hours of being placed and will arrive in approximately 7 business days.. There are several factors that contribute to when you will receive your order once it has been placed. The expediency with which your order is processed is determined by the accuracy of the order information provided by you, when the order is placed, order volume, and stock availability. The day on which your order is processed may affect when you receive it. Orders placed in the later part of the week will be held until the beginning of the following week.
It is imperative that all information included on the order be complete and accurate. Incomplete or inaccurate billing or shipping information on orders will result in a delay in processing and additional shipping charges.
If your order includes an item that is temporarily out-of-stock, but due to arrive within a few days, it will be delayed in an effort to ship the complete order. In that event we will attempt to notify you by e-mail of the delay.
Extreme weather conditions can affect your wine. High temperatures may cause your wine to leak, and extreme cold can freeze your wine during shipment. Since wine is vulnerable to extremes in temperature, and we have no control over the conditions of a carrier’s warehousing facility, we are not responsible for, and will not replace, wine that is damaged by extreme weather conditions. By placing an online order you are accepting the responsibility for that shipment through whatever weather conditions may occur during that shipment. If you live in an area where the current ambient temperature is near freezing in Winter or above 75 degrees Fahrenheit in Summer we suggest you select either 1 or 2 day shipping and be absolutely sure that an adult is available to sign for the shipment when it arrives on the scheduled day.
