As of June 19th, we are not shipping. Most of the US is enduring a bona-fide heat wave. Even if it is cool in your neighborhood, the wine would travel along some roads we think are too hot. Our cold shipping program is in place and we are shipping most orders within 2 weeks of placement. Thanks for you patience!
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.
