Wine companies usually ship wine orders within 24 hours, excluding weekends and holidays. Some will not ship on holidays, weekends or during inclement weather. If your order is halted for any reason, that means your wine must be kept in storage until it is brought to you. If inclement weather arises or if the shipping method you select is not able to arrive to the destination during the same week of the order, companies reserve the right to hold your shipment. Check to make sure the company you are dealing with has a temperature controlled warehouse if your wine will be sitting there for a few days. Some companies say they do and others say they are not responsible for the condition of their warehouses used for shipping wine lags. So buyer beware.
