SHIPPING WINE DURING EXTREME WEATHER MONTHS
LESS TIME IN TRANSIT
Wine is a heavy, fragile, and federally regulated product that can be costly to ship. During extreme weather months, we will not be using ground shipping, unless you are located in the Pacific Northwest. 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.
We recommend using 3 day UPS shipping with an insulated shipping box as the best option for shipping wines at this time. If you wish to have your wine changed to overnight shipping, please reach out to have your shipping status updated.
The shipping rates we provide at J. Bookwalter during warm weather months 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 email@example.com.
We use cardboard boxes with foam inserts and ice packs to insulate the wines in transit during warm weather months.
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.
