shipping Information

shipping wine and charges

To offer you the best shipping rates, we ship from California and Ohio, depending on your location. Recommended order quantities are 2, 6, and 12 bottle packages. Based on the time of year, we may restrict Ground service to certain states in order to maintain the integrity of the wine.

adult signature requirement

We strongly suggest shipping your order to a business address, as State law requires an adult signature at the time of delivery for any package containing wine. It is the recipient’s responsibility to ensure an adult is available to sign for the shipment at delivery. Shipments will not be delivered under the following circumstances:

  • The recipient is not 21 years of age or older or does not have an acceptable form of ID such as a driver's license, passport or birth certificate.
  • The recipient shows signs of intoxication.

Key points to know about shipping & Schedule

  • Orders cannot be shipped the same day they are placed online.
  • Shipping wine is complex due to various state-mandated limits and requirements. We verify orders through our state compliance matrix to ensure the legality of all shipments. It takes one business day to verify and process an order, then an additional day for picking and packing.
  • If you would like to schedule an order with a shipping date in the future, please call us at (800) 588-0298 rather than using the online store. We are happy to schedule orders for future shipping dates, pending inventory availability.
  • May through September, we ship on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday in order to minimize any potential heat hazards.
Orders by 2PM PST Ship (Ground) Arrive (2-Day Air) Arrive
Monday by Tuesday Approximately 1-5 business days after the shipment date. Ground service does not have a “delivery day agreement” and is not recommended for customers who must arrange to have someone 21 or older present at the delivery address to accept their wine shipment. by Thursday
Tuesday by Wednesday by Friday
Wednesday by Monday by Wednesday
Thursday by Monday by Wednesday
