We are currently experiencing service impacts due to extreme weather as well as the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. If you are sheltered in place, please make sure to update the shipping address on on your order to ensure delivery on the first attempt. A signature by an adult over the age of 21 is required upon delivery.
We are committed to getting your wine to you in the best condition possible. For this reason, orders traveling during the warm summer or freezing winter months will ship via a temperature-controlled truck and/or have ice packs included to ensure the wine stays at the optimal temperature during delivery.
Fall Release Shipping
We will begin shipping orders placed during the Fall Release starting in late October and continue into early November when the weather cools to ensure your wines arrive safely. If you want to receive your order earlier than the scheduled dates below, we recommend choosing 2nd Day Air or faster. We highly discourage early shipping using Ground services due to delays we have been experiencing as a result of the pandemic. If you have already placed your order, please contact us directly with your preferred shipping date and we will work with you to ship the wine during an optimal weather window.

Frequently Asked Questions
When shipping to a UPS store or FedEx location, please make sure that you have picked the correct shipping type to match the ship-to location. (UPS will not deliver to FedEx and vice versa)
We ship orders using the following carriers and services:
2nd Day Air
Next Day Air
• The Default common carrier option is UPS Ground for final delivery. (FedEx available upon request)
In the warm summer and fall months, ground services may not be available.
Ice packs can be added to shipments as needed; additional charges apply.
Ice packs are not necessary for GSO, or AZ and TX Temp Control orders, as they travel via air-conditioned vehicles.
Temperature Controlled Shipping is available year-round to most states (except AK, CA, HI, ID, ND, NV, OR, WA, and WY). The wine travels on a temperature-controlled truck to the area hub and from there is released to a common carrier that delivers the wine to your location.
Temperature controlled trucks only leave on Fridays (and Wednesdays during busier months). Orders placed after 10:00 AM the day before the temp control truck is scheduled to leave will ship the following week. AZ and TX temp control trucks only leave on Fridays and generally deliver the following week.
To better anticipate the actual delivery date, common carrier tracking will be sent to the email address listed on the order once your order leaves our fulfillment house. For temperature control orders, the tracking information will be sent after it is processed at the regional shipping hub.
We care about your wines; the weather will be monitored and we will communicate any changes via email.
If you have questions regarding the shipping of your order or if you need your order to arrive by a specific date, please call (800) 346-1627 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
