Shipping Policy

Please review our shipping policy carefully, including time expectations for ground shipments. We strongly recommend shipping to a business address whenever possible as a signature is required for alcohol deliveries. 

Standard Shipping Policy: You must be at least 21 years of age to order or receive wine.  Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an "Adult Signature Required" sticker. All carriers who deliver alcoholic beverages are required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that you or someone over the age of 21 will need to be present at the time of delivery to sign for your shipment. We highly recommend having your wine shipped to a business to avoid any potential delays.  Ground orders ship ever Friday via a temperature controlled truck. This is our standard shipping policy, we offer other expedited shipping options that are faster for an additional charge. All shipping costs are listed separately in your total at checkout. It is a federal mandate that an adult over the age of 21 years of age must sign and be there to accept any wine shipments. No wine shipment will be left without the required adult signature.

Ground shipping: Please allow between 14 to 21 business days depending on the destination distance from Napa. We ship via temperature controlled trucks to ensure the quality of your wine. You will receive a shipment notification upon your order being processed, for ground shipments, the tracking number will not be active until it hits your local UPS hub, at that time it will go out for delivery the next day. Ground shipments have no commitment date guarantee. For guaranteed arrival by a specific date, please choose expedited shipping such as 3-day, 2-day or overnight.

Specialty States*: We do not ship to the following states:  Alabama, Delaware, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Utah.

How weather affects your shipment: Weather conditions can affect your shipment in two ways: during transit between our winery and the destination address, as well as during local delivery in the destination area. Please consider national and local weather conditions prior to making a shipping selection. We cannot make your shipping decision for you, however, the following recommendations have proved useful. When in doubt, it is best to select a faster option rather than Ground, as Ground transit times are not guaranteed. Also note that delivery companies give business addresses priority over residences by delivering earlier in the day, which means less time exposed to heat or cold in the back of a delivery truck. During hot weather and severe cold, we strongly recommend sending packages by 2-Day service or faster and to a business address.
