We pay for your ground shipping for orders subtotaling $500 and more. We subsidize the costs for ground shipping smaller orders and for 2nd and Next Day Air.
If at all possible, please provide a business shipping address. It is safer for your wine and offers the best chance that there will be someone over the age of 21 available to sign for your wine when delivery is attempted. The common carriers will not leave an alcohol shipment on your doorstep.
