SHIPPING WINE DURING EXTREME WEATHER MONTHS
Wine is a heavy, fragile, and federally regulated product that can be costly to ship. During extreme weather months, we will not ship wines. We want to protect the wine from heat or cold damage to ensure you receive a pristine product. Once temperatures regulate, we will resume regular ground shipping.
In rare cases, expidited shipping may get your wine to you before the weather has a negative effect on your wine. Upon request and weather permitting we may use 3 day UPS shipping with an insulated shipping box . If you wish to have your wine changed to expedited shipping, please reach out to us at email@example.com and we can review your request.
The shipping rates we provide at J. Bookwalter are heavily subsidized by us to provide you with the best rate. We charge less than the rate UPS is charging us. We do this to make sure you are still able to receive your wines at an affordable rate all year long. If you have questions about shipping please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use cardboard boxes with foam inserts and ice packs to insulate the wines in transit during warm weather months. We utilize recycled pulp inserts during regular shipping times
WHY WE CHOOSE TO COLD PACK
Simply put, when wine becomes warm it effects its flavor and can be less enjoyable. In extreme cases, corks may pop or damage the wine bottle and the wine inside. With most of our wines we have spent years crafting it, making sure it is as tasty as it can be. We would hate for you to receive a less than optimal product from us.
DAYS WE SEND OUT SHIPMENTS
At J. Bookwalter we choose to ship out parcels on Mondays and Tuesdays. This prevents wine from sitting in transit over the weekend and potentially spoiling the wines. If you need your wines sooner, please let us know.
