Chiarello Vineyards Ground Wine Shipping "Heat-Hold" goes into effect across much of the United States from Memorial Day through Labor Day, where wines are automatically held back at our fulfillment center, to be shipped upon the return of more moderate weather. Should you require wine shipments during these summer months, CFV strongly recommends shipping 2-Day Air, or better yet, Priority Overnight, so as to avoid potential wine spoilage due to heat damage (for which CFV may not be held liable).
States Authorized for Direct Shipment
CFV ships wine directly from the winery to consumers ("Winery-Direct") in AK, AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, IL, LA, MI, MN, MO, NV, NM, NY, NC, OH, OR, TX, VA, WA & WI [Never to UT, PA, NH, WV]. CFV has limited abilities to facilitate customer wine orders to most other US States as well as many Countries, via third-party shipping centers, such as ILS or Buffalo Shipping of Napa.
To initiate wine order shipments to non-Winery-Direct States or other Countries, select "PICKUP AT WINERY" option at checkout and process the order as if planning to pickup the wines from the winery tasting room. Be sure to enter into the Notes Section your desired Recipient Shipping Information.
- CA sales taxes apply as the sale is considered a "PICKUP AT WINERY" or onsite order at the winery.
- ILS Wine Shipping is CFV's preferred third-party wine shipping solution. Third-party shippers directly bill the customers for all shipments on their behalf.
- Except for ILS Shipping, CFV may assess a $20-per-case handling fee to transport wine purchases from the winery to other offsite third-party shipping centers or private wine storage facilities such as 55-Degrees of St. Helena in Napa Valley.
State and local taxes for wine, food, merchandise, and/or freight may apply on shipments. As required, additional charges may apply for 2-day or overnight shipping, multiple-address shipping, third-party shipping (billed separately), and/or large format bottles. Wine shipments must be made to legal address of person 21 years of age or older, and signature is required for delivery. It is strongly recommended to ship to a business to avoid ship delays (which could affect wine quality).

Wine is a Delicate Commodity
Wine is a perishable commodity. Wine does not like extremes of temperature: hot humid summer and cold winter weather may adversely affect the condition of your wine during shipment. Chiarello Vineyards is not responsible for, and will not replace wine that is damaged by extreme weather conditions during shipment. When your wine order is picked up by the common carrier for delivery, responsibility for the wine becomes the responsibility of the purchaser.
