Shipping Regulation

We ship wine within the U.S. according to the laws in each state for direct shipment. Please be aware that states may have different regulations on wine shipments. Many states do not allow residents to receive direct shipments, and most states restrict the amount of wine that can be shipped.  See Direct Shipping Information

We only deliver to persons age 21 and older. A signature is required upon delivery, but it does not have to be given by the person named on the package. Drivers are instructed to disregard signature releases. We recommend shipping to a business address or location where an adult is likely to be available during business hours.

Orders must be placed by Wednesday at 3 p.m. (PST) to be shipped the same week. We ship just one day a week, on Fridays. For rush orders please contact us.

Shipping and Handling fees

Our goal is to make sure your product arrives safely at your home.

Express carriers UPS and FedEx require a certified package, which we provide at no additional cost. However, you must pay shipping costs. They will appear during the check out process.

Once your order is processed you will receive an email with a routing number.

The table below illustrates time of delivery by UPS Ground. We cannot guarantee timely delivery for submission of incorrect addresses or for incidents of extreme weather that could adversely affect goods in transit.
