Shipping and Return Policy
What can be shipped & where (see Terms of Sale below)
Beer and Spirits may only be shipped or delivered from our premises within the state of California. Wine may be shipped to a variety of states, but note that in this particular respect the United States is 50 countries, each with its own regulatory framework controlling the sale of alcohol beverages. You can thank the 21st Amendment of the US Constitution for this; the legal battle over interstate shipping of wine is more than 30 years old and by no means over. For more information see Free The Grapes.
Rates and charges
The shipping rate for all products is based on shipping destination, weight and dimension. Oversized or overweight packages might have additional charges.
How orders are processed
Orders will be shipped and your credit card will be processed within 2 business days of receiving your order. We make every effort to ship orders received on the same business day (excluding holidays/weekends).
State tax will be added to all orders shipped to California.
Notification of order
We will send a confirmation e-mail shipment notification to inform you when your order has shipped, but point-to-point or in-transit information may not be available.
Pickup is an Option
If you live in or near our location and wish to pickup your order, please specify details on the form at checkout and we will notify you when your order is available for pickup.
Except in those cases where a shipment was received in damaged condition, all sales are final. Customers may report damaged shipments by contacting us directly.
