Shipping Policy

General Information

Packages are generally dispatched within 1 day after receipt of payment. However, due to the sensitive nature of wine, we will not ship over the weekend. Thus, if you place your order on Friday your wine will not ship until Monday. Any orders placed on Thursday for delivery outside of North Carolina, Virginia or Washington DC also will not ship until Monday.

If your order has a certain deadline arrival date, please make us aware in the comments section during checkout so we can act accordingly.

All packages are shipped via UPS and will require the signature of an adult over the age of 21 to be delivered. UPS will NOT leave your package on your porch or at your doorstep if no one is home. For this reason we highly recommend delivery to a business address. We cannot deliver to a PO Box.

Please provide an accurate shipping address to ensure prompt delivery and avoid redelivery charges. Although we try our best to remain flexible, we cannot guarantee any changes made to any order after it has been submitted.

Once your order has shipped, we will contact you by email with a link to track your package online. It is important that you provide a valid email address if you wish to track your package. Please note, these tracking numbers will not be active until they are scanned by the driver. For example, if you have an order scheduled to ship on a Monday, we may box it on a Friday and send you the tracking info. However, the tracking info will not be valid until the driver picks it up on Monday.

The total cost of shipping includes handling fees as well as shipping costs. Handling fees are fixed, whereas shipping fees vary according to total weight of the shipment and the distance traveled. We advise you to group your items in one order to reduce the cost of your shipping and handling fees.

We do everything possible on our end to protect our wine shipments from temperature-related damage. However, we are not responsible for any damage that may result due to weather conditions, so please be certain that it’s suitable to ship to your address, weather-wise.

If any package is returned to us for any reason after three delivery attempts, the customer is still responsible for delivery charges, and we will charge shipping costs again if a re-shipment is requested.

We highly recommend using a daytime office address to ensure prompt receipt of your package. Packages containing alcohol will not be left if no one is present to receive the package. Furthermore, the package must be signed for by a person over 21 years of age.

If you do choose to have your wine delivered to a residential address, we recommend that you subscribe to the free UPS My Choice service.
