Delivery, Shipping and Temporary Storage
We offer the following delivery and shipping options:
- Ground Shipping Via Fedex.
- Local Next-Business Day Delivery
- In-Store Pick-Up
Details are described below. If you need faster service, like same-day delivery or over-night air shipping, please call us at (212) 477-1315 (New York) or (415-) 780-4015 (San Francisco) to discuss your options.
Please note, all orders placed on this web site are with either our San Francisco store or our New York store. You can toggle between the two stores at the top of our home page. Any orders placed with our San Francisco store will ship from San Francisco and any orders placed with our New York store will ship from our New York store. Shipping rates will be calculated accordingly. California customers, we do offer consolidated shipping from our New York shop, as described below.
Ground Shipping Via Fedex
Default shipping is through Fedex if you live outside our local delivery zones -- California, for our SF shop, and New York, New Jersey and Connecticut for our NY shop. Subject to our Terms & Conditions, we can arrange for ground shipment via FedEx on your behalf. Flat-rates for ground shipping are based on the number of bottles and the destination state, and are determined in accordance with actual Fedex rates. Shipping rates applying to your order can be reviewed before check-out and before you provide payment information.
For orders placed before noon, we generally process ground shipment for the following business day, although we may hold shipments until the following Monday to avoid the wine sitting in a FedEx warehouse over a weekend. We will also hold shipments if weather conditions do not generally permit safe shipping of wine, in which case we will contact you via email to discuss your options.
Local Next-Business Day Delivery
If you place an order by noon on any day, we will make a local delivery the next business day with our own vehicles, via Fedex, or via a local courier service. Local delivery from our New York store is to anywhere in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Local delivery from our San Francisco store is to anywhere in California.
Rates are as follows:
- Free on all orders within the neighborhood of the store, regardless of size of order.
- Free on all orders above $129, before tax, to a single address in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and California.
- $12 flat fee for any order below $129 in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and the Bay Area.
- $18 flat fee for any order from our San Francisco shop to anywhere in California outside of the Bay Area.
- Additional charges may apply for expedited delivery.
Store pick-up is convenient if you live in the New York City or San Francisco areas and would like to drop by the shop. It's fun! We are very conveniently located for public transportation, and if you feel like driving there are plenty of parking options in the immediate vicinity of both shop locations.
Please note: If you buy wine from our New York shop, you have to pick it up in New York, and if you buy wine in our San Francisco shop, you have to pick it up in San Francisco -- but see our low-cost consolidated shipping option below.
Consolidated Shipping from New York to San Francisco
If you are a California customer and would like to purchase wine available only at our New York store we offer affordable consolidated shipping. We use a third-party service for consolidated shipments via refrigerated trucks from New York to San Francisco. These truck shipments are scheduled about every six weeks with the exception of July and August. On your behalf, we can ask this third party service provider to include your orders on a future consolidated shipment. The cost is $15/case to San Francisco. For orders over $250 delivery anywhere in California is free. Just select "store pick-up" at check out and send us a note that you want to participate in this program.
***We currently cannot provide shipment to the following states*** Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah. This list is subject to change and all online orders shipping out-of-state will be reviewed for legal compliance and confirmed before finalizing payment and shipping. We are able to provide shipment for spirits only within New York State.
We are able to ship to any country worldwide where legally permitted. Please email email@example.com or give us a call at 212-477-1315 to inquire about pricing and shipping options.
At your request, we will hold any order you place with us for up to three months pending pick-up or delivery instructions at no cost. We will extend this period in the event that weather does not permit safe shipping. Beyond that period, we charge $15/case/month to hold your wine.
