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!

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.

Returned Shipments 
It is the recipient's responsibility to receive the shipment in a timely matter. If for whatever reason the shipment is returned back to sender, the outbound shipping fee is non-refundable. Additionally, customers may incur additional charges for cost of return of shipment.

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. 

**PROCESSING TIME:
Please note that while our typical processing time is 1-2 business days, during the holiday season that can be extended to 2-4 business days due to increased volume. If you are having a package sent via overnight, or have a tight deadline, please give us a call or send an email to ensure that we can work with your timeline.
Please also note that in addition to our increased volume, our carriers have an increased volume as well. Note that GROUND SHIPPING times are APPROXIMATE, and if you are looking for specific delivery dates, EXPRESS SHIPPING is the more certain option.Thank you.)
