FAQ: Buyer Special Shipping Options

What are the Special Shipping options?

There are some special processing rules for some areas.

Alabama (12 bottle minimum)
All wine orders to Alabama have to be processed manually. Read below for steps to order wine in Alabama. Please contact us with any questions.

  • Register as a buyer here. This verifies your age for us.
  • Fill out this authorization form from the Alabama ABC. Please list each product separately. Use multiple forms if needed.
  • Find a state store for your wine to be delivered to here. Enter the store on the authorization form including address, supervisor's name, and store number.
  • Send us an email with your authorization form and your order.
  • Once we receive your order information we will contact you for credit card details.

California (12 bottle minimum)
This process is only necessary for buying wine from wineries that don't have a California permit. Our shipments to California have to ship via our California warehouse. There will be a shipping fee to our warehouse and one for the final destination. Please contact us with any questions.

  • Register as a buyer here. This verifies your age for us.
  • You won’t be able to place your order online, so please call or email us the wine (with quantities) you wish to purchase.
  • Provide us with your credit card information (number, card, expiration, and billing address). For your security, this is best done over the phone.
  • Get us your shipping address in California by phone or email.
  • We bring the wine to our California warehouse and then ship it to your California address.
  • There are two charges to your credit card. One for the wine shipping to our warehouse in California and one for the shipping charge to your California address. It's approximately $25 to ship a case of wine within California.

Wines can only be shipped in Virginia if a Virginia Winery has a direct shippers permit.
