Frequently Asked Questions
Order Tracking, Shipping Info, and Other Details
On June 28, 2022, FedEx will require ID scanning for deliveries in the U.S. which require an adult signature. The ID scanning technology will electronically capture the recipient’s name and automate age verification. This new process eliminates the need for manual data entry of recipient information and improves the accuracy of recipient information.
When a recipient’s ID is scanned, the scanning technology will:
- Capture the recipient’s name associated with the ID and auto-populate the first initial and last name.
- Confirm the recipient is 21 years or older.
The software does not record any other personal data (e.g., driver's license number, phone number(s), birthdate, home address, etc.). However, capturing the recipient’s first initial and last name is part of the existing proof of delivery process for all signature deliveries and will be retained only as long as necessary.
For more information please refer to the FedEx website.
To ensure your wines are received in pristine condition, select the 2 day air + ice pack option at checkout. Our ice packs only last for 48 hours, so 2 day air is the recommended shipping strategy. It is also critical that someone 21 years of age or older is available to sign for the wines on the first delivery attempt. Multiple delivery attempts will hinder the quality of the wine.
Packaging Detail: To limit condensation damage, each bottle and ice-pack are wrapped in separate waterproof plastic sleeves. Ice packs aren’t suitable for our standard pulp packaging, so Styrofoam is used in its place.

We are currently unable to ship internationally.
We love all the states and territories - but unfortunately we’re currently unable to ship to:
Someone 21+ years old must be home to sign for your wine shipment. We highly recommend having your package sent to a business address for signing, to ensure you get your wine with the first attempted delivery.
Yes, we can ship to business addresses. In fact, it’s the most reliable way to receive your wine! We are unable to deliver to PO Box addresses. All deliveries require a signature by someone 21+ years old.
Our preferred carrier of choice is FedEx. If you won’t be home or are unable to sign for the package for some reason, FedEx’s Hold At Location services allow you to arrange for pickup at one of their nearby partner locations, such as FedEx Stores or Walgreens, on your terms.
Don’t fret! After the 3-attempts the package will be held in the area for 10-days pending action, before it is returned to our facility. Someone 21+ needs to sign for the package. If you are unavailable, you can log on to the FedEx website or call 1800GoFedEx (say 'hold package') for pickup locations near you. Please note that a valid form of ID is required upon pickup. Once held, most locations require pickup within 5 business days (one calendar week) before it is sent back to us.
If you do need to ‘redirect’ the package to another location, such as a business address, where someone 21+ will be available to sign for the package, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Packages cannot be redirected between states.
Please let us know if you need help managing your order.
While we are unable to split a single order, you can update your shipping address at any time in your Account Settings.
We put the utmost care into packaging up and shipping your wines, but accidents happen from time to time, and there’s no use in crying over spilled wine. Please contact us if your package has a damaged or missing bottle and we’ll coordinate replacing it.
We guarantee quality products and service. Your satisfaction is our first priority. We will replace or refund your cost for any bottle of wine that is damaged or flawed that was purchased through our website. Wines purchased through retailers must be returned to them. We ask that you return the unfinished portion of the original bottle for replacement. By law, we cannot accept returns of alcoholic beverages unless the products are corked or flawed. We are also unable to accept return of wine that was damaged due to adverse weather conditions during shipment, or wine that is ordered in error. Weather damage may include leakage, freezing, and/or corks pushing. Please be sure to check shipping destination weather conditions before placing your order.
To arrange for the return of corked or flawed products, please send an email to email@example.com.
If the original shipment was damaged or flawed, you will receive a full refund, including shipping and handling charges, or you will receive a full replacement order.
Billing Info: How do I pay for the wine?
Your credit card will be charged when the order has left our warehouse.
Yes. Sales tax varies by state. Your total will reflect the sales tax applied to your shipping area during checkout.
While we continually monitor inventory to ensure our website's accuracy, there are occasions when certain vintages sell out or simply are no longer available. When that occurs, our Wine Specialists will replace the wine with a comparable vintage or varietals.
We accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and Diner's Club credit and debit cards; as well as Apple Pay, Google Pay, Meta Pay, and PayPal options. We also offer ShopPay to make saving your card and shipping information fast and easy.
