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 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 Information
We will begin shipping orders in mid-October and into early November as the weather cools. If you would like to receive your wines earlier, please choose a requested ship date when placing your order, or contact us with your preferred date. If you decide to send the wines early, we will upgrade the shipping method at no additional cost
Wines shipped before the scheduled date will travel via temperature controlled truck and/or with ice packs as needed based on the weather in your state at the time of shipping. Orders shipping via temperature-controlled truck will typically ship on a Friday. Please note that UPS will be the default common carrier for Temp Control unless FedEx services are requested. Please add FedEx to the order notes if they are your preferred carrier

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 delivered 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 send when 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 you need your order to arrive by a specific date, please call (800) 346-1627 or email for assistance.
