We do NOT ship to the following states:   AK, AL, AR, DE, HI, KY, MS, MT, NH, OK, RI, or UT.  Please accept our apologies if we are unable to ship to your area.  Various states impose limitations on the quantity of alcoholic beverages that may be purchased and brought into their jurisdiction by a purchaser from another state without requiring the purchaser, a seller or shipper to possess certain licenses or permits.  Fine Wine Cellars does not, as a condition of sale, assume any obligation nor bear any responsibility whatsoever for applying or obtaining any permits or licenses.  Therefore, we recommend that you investigate the possibility of such limitations, and determine the manner in which alcoholic beverages shall be brought into your state, so as to comply with all of your state’s requirements.

                How will my wine be shipped?

                1. Fine Wine Cellars contracts with a third party carrier (generally FedEx Ground) that will ship the product(s) that you have already purchased.  Ownership of any product that Fine Wine Cellars sells changes hands at the time of purchase.  By requesting that your purchase be shipped to you, you are authorizing us to engage a third party carrier to deliver your purchase on your behalf.  Fine Wine Cellars is not responsible for any breakage or damage of your purchase by said third party carrier. 
                2. Fine Wine Cellars uses carrier approved cardboard boxes for shipping orders and does not ship wood boxes or other non-conforming boxes or packaging.  Styrofoam shippers may be available upon request for an additional fee.  

                When will my wine be shipped?

                1. Most orders are shipped within 24-48 hours of ordering; however orders received during weekend or holiday periods are subject to added delays.  Fine Wine Cellars will make every effort to ship your internet order as soon as possible.  If you need to expedite your order, please email us in advance at or call us (toll free) at 877-999-2630. You must confirm all Overnight or Two Day Express shipments via telephone if you need them shipped in fewer than 2-3 business days.
