Shipping Information

Important Shipping Info

Wine is a perishable commodity. Wine does not like extreme temperatures: hot humid summer and cold winter weather may adversely affect the condition of your wine during shipment. Winetasting.com is not responsible for, and will not replace wine that is damaged by extreme weather conditions during shipment. When your wine order is picked up by the common carrier for delivery, responsibility for the wine becomes the responsibility of the purchaser. No insurance for heat or cold damage is provided by the shipper. We can hold your shipment until weather patterns change.

All shipments will ship standard ground unless you request otherwise.

#1 Choose "Overnight" shipping and a business address for fast delivery and ensured signature.
Overnight shipping will reduce the time in transit.  Business addresses are also a good option in these cases since there is someone there to sign for deliveries.  Overnight shipping does have an increased cost, but this is the best way to get it there quickly and on a pre-planned date. 

#2 Choose a future delivery date for a time if desired.  
Upon checkout, in the Comments section, type the date up to six months from now that you would like to ship your wine. We will store your wine in our temperature controlled warehouse and will ship it to arrive on the future date you select. If you aren't in a hurry to receive your wine and don't want to upgrade to Next Day Air, choosing a good future date may be the best option for you. Please note that if you choose this option, credit card funds will be captured at the time the order is placed.

#3 If you choose not to upgrade to Overnight or give us a future date, we will ship standard ground (if weather conditions are suitable)  
We watch the weather closely and will hold the order and notify you if it is unsafe to ship. We will ship your order as soon as conditions permit. The release dates will vary, and because there is no specified date for delivery, the warehouses will ship it as weather permits. If your order is shipped, you will receive a shipping notice with the tracking number link. You can then sign into UPS My Choice to manage your delivery.  


Where We Can Ship

Due to the ever-changing nature of wine shipping laws, Winetasting.com cannot currently ship wine to the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and West Virginia. In most states, please allow 5-7 business days for processing and delivery.

Because individual state legal compliance is maintained on a per-product level, not all wines may be available in all states. We can only ship our house brands to Colorado, Illinois, New York, South Dakota and Texas. Any applicable state taxes will be added. In some states, we are prohibited from offering any inducements or offers.


Three Attempts Will Be Made To Deliver Wine

By law, all wine deliveries must be signed for by an adult over the legal drinking age (21+). Therefore, we cannot leave packages on your doorstep, and we cannot ship to PO boxes.

Standard delivery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If it's difficult for you to be home during this time, we recommend shipping your order to your local UPS Store (contact store for details as additional charges may apply). You may also consider having your order shipped to your business address or to a neighbor's home.

The courier will make 3 attempts to deliver your order (once per day). After 3 attempts, the order will be returned to us. Return fees will be incurred. Additional shipping fees will be charged to have orders reshipped.


Shipping Rates

Shipping charges are calculated separately for each delivery address. Standard shipping charges (UPS Ground) apply to all states where we can legally ship wine.

Wine Orders

Quantity      Rate
Each qty of 1-6 bottles          $19.95




EXPEDITED TO SEND OVERNIGHT

OVERNIGHT ORDERS: For orders of 1-6 bottles, add $40.00 plus standard delivery charge ($19.95 + $40.00 = $59.95 per six-pack shipped). 


Non-Wine Orders

Non-wine products are shipped separately from wine orders.


Shipping Times

New orders are typically processed within 1-2 business days. Once processed, standard ground shipping to most states takes about 5-7 business days.

Except as noted below, we ship directly to the consumer via our Ohio and California warehouses, using UPS. The carrier typically delivers during normal business hours (Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

Two-Day Express and Overnight delivery may be available for additional fees; call for details. Items with stated longer delivery times cannot be expedited.

Certain fine wines, including aged Cabernet and Bordeaux, are available in limited quantities and stored in our temperature-controlled Napa warehouse. To ensure that this wine reaches your doorstep in top condition, we may ship other wines in your order separately, over multiple days, from multiple warehouses. We appreciate your understanding of the time and care we take in assuring the provenance of your fine wine order.


Substitutions

Due to the nature of the fine wine business and the high quality of our wine selections, there is sometimes a finite amount of each wine produced. If your selected wine is sold out, we will contact you to assist in finding a comparable substitute of similar type and price.

In the event you order a collection or promotional kit and an item is sold out, we reserve the right to substitute with a comparable wine in terms of taste and price. We will also make every effort to indicate this policy at the product level and indicate which items have been substituted.
