Shipping, Taxes & Terms of Sale
Extreme temperatures can ruin wine
Wine is a perishable item, and extreme heat or cold can adversely affect it during transit – either via its route or at your destination. Typically, boxes of wine sent by Ground service will travel on trucks not outfitted with temperature controls in the cargo areas, and the extended hot/cold effects can damage your wine. This is unacceptable to us (you'll probably agree), so we take measures to prevent temperature-related damage.
We may elect to hold some shipments for a few days to ensure they do not travel through extreme cold or heat. If you are concerned about temperatures in your area, please select 2-Day or Overnight shipping, or let us know to hold your wine until it's safe to ship. Note that insurance coverage is not available for damage resulting from temperatures if ground delivery is selected.
Overnight & 2-Day Shipping
Due to specific pick-up schedules at Argyle, orders that include Overnight or 2-Day shipping options will go out the same day if placed by 2:00pm PST. Overnight and 2-Day orders placed after 2pm PST will be shipped the following business morning.
