Shipping Policy

We try to keep our shipping prices as low as possible! But bottles are heavy, and require special packing material. Keep in mind that some bottles or gift sets weigh more than others!

All orders are shipped in styrofoam-lined cardboard boxes.

Shipments are processed within 24 hours, and then shipped out according to selected shipping method/time. Please be sure to add a buffer of one day to your shipping needs. If you require delivery within 24 hours, please call the store at 415.386.9463 to make specific arrangements. Additionally, please make sure that you will be available at time of delivery, as adult signature (21years or older with identification) is required.

Legal Age Requirement
Any shipment of alcohol must be signed for by an adult that is 21 years or older. No exceptions. 
Alcohol shipments are sent with an "Adult Signature Required" stipulation, and the common carrier used for delivery is required to ask for and verify ID before delivering merchandise. Many of our customers select to have shipments sent to a business address in lieu of a residential address to avoid missed delivery attempts.

Interstate Shipping
All merchandise from Blackwell's Wines & Spirits is sold in California and title passes to buyer in California. By placing your order, you authorize Blackwell's Wines & Spirits to engage a common carrier on your behalf to deliver the merchandise to your specified address. We make no representation as to the legal right of anyone to ship or import wines into any state or country outside of California. When selecting to ship to another state, you assume all responsibility for determining whether you may lawfully import alcoholic beverages into that state. As interstate shipping laws are continually changing, please check with an appropriate agency before placing your order.

Please note that interstate and international shipments may incur additional taxes and tariffs from the final destination location. These additional fees are  the responsibility of the customer.
