Due to the ever-changing nature of wine shipping laws, we may not be able to ship wines, directly or indirectly, to certain states.

Wine is a perishable commodity. Wine does not like extremes of temperature: hot humid summer and cold winter weather may adversely affect the condition of your wine during shipment. Accordingly, we are not responsible for, and will not replace wine that is damaged by, weather conditions during shipment. When your wine order is picked up by the common carrier for delivery, responsibility for the wine becomes your responsibility.
