Do you notify me when my Club shipment is on its way or ready for pickup? +
Yes. We charge your credit card on a Monday and ship the wines the following Monday. For most of the West Coast, wine releases are delivered 1 to 2 days later. For East Coast addresses, wine selections are delivered in 5-10 business days. When your Club is shipped, you will receive an email with tracking information. After we charge your credit card, we will email you and notify you when your wines will be ready for pickup in our tasting room. A deadline for pickup will be noted in the email as well. If your wine is not picked during the timeframe stated, the wines will be shipped to you and the credit card on file will be charged for shipping.
Do I have to be home to receive my wine? +
Yes, the federal government requires that someone 21 or older, with a government-issued identification, be present to sign for any package containing alcohol. You may ship to a home address but we strongly recommend shipping to a business address where someone will be available to sign for the package.
