Delivery in the neighborhood is always free. See our delivery map at the end of this page. Give us a call at 718-963-3939 to place an order, or order on-line and select "Neighborhood Delivery" at check-out. Better yet, drop by the store the next time you shop at Whole Foods, put together a case of wine, and we'll bring it over to your place for free. If you place a neighborhood order on-line and need immediate delivery, it's best to give us a call to make sure we get to your order right away. Otherwise, orders placed during the day will typically be delivered in the evening of the same day, or the next day if you place your order after 6 pm.
Shipping in New York State and Across the Country
We will ship on your behalf all orders outside of the neighobrhood delivery zone by Ground Fedex. Pricing is as follows:
-- Shipments within New York State are free for orders above $150
-- Shipments to any other state are free for orders above $250
-- Any shipment that does not meet the above free delivery thresholds will be subject to a flat shipping fee of $17.50.
If you desire over-night or expedited shipping, please leave us a note at check-out. We will email you to indicate any additional charges that will apply, subject to your approval.
Shipments are generally sent next business day, although if that would result in wine being stored in a fedex warehouse over the weekend, we will generally ship on the next Monday instead. Note that Fedex generally guarantees deliveries from New York to the West Coast in six business days. In our experience, a shipment to the West Coast sent on a Monday will generally arrive before the weekend, but there are no guarantees.
Shipments within Fedex's one-day shipping zone for ground deliveries from New York will generally be shipped in standard cardboard shippers, unless the wine is particularly valuable or sensitive to temperature fluctuations. All other shipments will be sent in foam shippers. We do not ship wine at all when weather conditions are extreme, unless you request that we do so in writing. We will hold your wine at no cost until weather permits safe shipping.
Sorry, we are not legally permitted to ship any spirits outside of the State of New York. In addition, we do not ship wine to any of the following states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Washington State. The laws governing inter-state shipments of alcohol are changing constantly and this list of no-state ships is subject to change without notice, including after you have placed an order that we have confirmed. In addition to the no-ship list, Fedex cannot deliver wines directly from us to residents in certain states. We engage a third-party service on behalf of our customers so that they can get the wine from our shop to those states, which results in delays of up to one week.
