Mailing List Shipments
Due to legal restrictions, we are only permitted to ship wine to select states. Please note that verification of age and signature is required at the time of delivery. Carriers make three attempts to deliver, after which the wine is returned to WineSmith Wines. No wine will be delivered to a visibly intoxicated person, and any person unable to produce age verification forfeits the right to receive the shipment until identification is produced. In such circumstances, the order may be held in storage at a local depot until appropriate identification is produced, or it may be shipped back to the winery. If a wine shipment is shipped back to the winery, the customer is responsible for freight charges. Customers are responsible for all taxes, shipping or handling fees, including shipments that are refused, returned or shipped to an old address. Should your wine shipment be returned for any reason, the fee to re-ship would be the full rate charged by the common carrier to WineSmith Wines, Inc. If there has been some sort of error with delivery, we will be happy to work with you to resolve it.
We will replace any bottle of wine that is damaged, flawed, or otherwise deemed to be unsatisfactory. We may request that the customer return the unfinished portion of the original bottle for replacement along with any shipping materials and a copy of the purchase receipt. Please Contact Us for assistance.
Order and Shipping Information
Orders may take several days to ship. Order placed on weekends and holidays may take up to an additional 3 days to ship.
Customers requiring specialized delivery service are encouraged to call us directly for assistance in placing the order.
Based on state availability, shipments are handled by UPS or FedEx. Unless designated by the customer, most orders are shipped via ground service.
Wine shipments require an adult (21 years or older) signature at the time of delivery. No wine will be delivered to a visibly intoxicated person, and any person unable to produce age verification forfeits their right to receive the shipment until identification is produced. In such circumstances, the order may be held in storage at a local depot until appropriate identification is produced, or it may be shipped back to us in original condition, restocked, and the purchase price refunded.
All costs associated with the returns due to unsuccessful delivery attempts will be charged to the customer.
Shipping charges include costs for third-party transit and all product-handling costs. Orders are shipped following credit card authorization and settlement.
In the extreme hot or cold weather, shipments may be delayed until the weather is appropriate for shipping. This could mean we would keep your order in cold storage until Spring of Fall in some parts of the country. If you wish to arrange a different option, two-day air is available at an additional charge.
