Online Store Policies
Shipments of Wine
Due to legal restrictions on shipments of wine and other alcoholic beverages, we are only permitted to ship to the certain states. You may call or email us regarding your state. All wine orders must be placed by a person 21 years of age or older. To receive a shipped order, an adult 21 years or older, will be required to sign for the wine. Verification of age is required at the time of delivery. We recommend use of a business address to facilitate delivery of your purchase. Wine will not be delivered to a visibly intoxicated person. Failure to produce age verification forfeits the right to receive the shipment until identification is produced. In such circumstances, the order may be held in storage at a local depot of the shipping company until appropriate identification is produced, or it may be shipped back to the winery. All associated costs will be the responsibility of and be charged to the customer.
Shipments are made on Monday through Thursday only to prevent your wine from sitting in a storage area over the weekend. All shipments are shipped ground unless otherwise stated so, please allow 5-7 business days for normal delivery. Freight is calculated towards the end of the online ordering process. Also, at this time we do not ship online store products outside the United States.
