We strongly recommend delivery of wine shipments to a business, as opposed to a home address, 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.
January 2020 Giuseppe & Luisa Pre-Release Shipping
We will begin shipping Ground (UPS, FedEx and GSO) and Temperature Controlled orders on January 24th. If you would like us to send your shipment at a different time, please contact us directly or add a future ship date along with any special shipping requests to the notes section of the order at the time of submission. Please submit any changes to your order by January 22nd.
*Temp-controlled orders will only ship on a Friday
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 email@example.com for assistance.
