Shipping & The Weather
Fall weather has arrived in much of the country.
Most of the hot weather is out of the way and we are shipping normally to everywhere except the southwest. Our apologies to customers in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Louisiana.
In the summer, warm weather makes shipping to many parts of the United States very difficult. We have been saying this for years, but wine gets very, very angry when it is shipped in the heat, sometimes leaping out of the bottle.
Very cold weather is a bit easier to deal with, but is still challenging. We know that wine will freeze at around 20ºF (-9ºC). Exposure to cold temperatures won't hurt the wine, but will probably promote the formation of calcium tartrate.
If delivery of your order is time sensitive, please call us at 323.269.9463 or e-mail us. We can discuss arrangements to get your wine to its destination.
