Shipping Policy

Shipping Policy

Shipping:

All wines are sold in California and title passes to the buyer in California. Biondivino will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that Biondivino in its sole judgement believes that such shipment will not subject Biondivino to the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by Biondivino violates the law, we suggest that the buyer provide an alternative address in another state. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine may violate the law, we ask that the buyer reaches out to us via email at sales@biondivino.com to discuss shipping options.

Legal Disclaimer:

Title to, and ownership of, all wine passes from seller to buyer in the State of California, and buyer takes all responsibility for shipping the wine from California to his or her home state. By placing an order, buyer authorizes seller to act on buyer’s behalf in arranging for transportation of the wine at the buyer’s direction. Alternatively, buyer may choose to pick up the wine at seller’s location, or make independent shipping arrangements. Sales tax will be applied based on the seller’s location.  Seller makes no representation as to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import any wines, alcoholic beverages or other goods into any state. The buyer is solely responsible for the shipment of wine and other goods purchased and for determining the legality and the tax/duty consequences of having the wine and other goods shipped to the applicable destination.

Shipping and Handling Charges:

Prices of our wines do not include shipping/handling charges, the cost of which varies depending on destination, number of bottles ordered and choice of delivery options.

Age/Signature Requirement:

You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages from Biondivino. Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an "Adult Signature Required" sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. Someone who is at least 21 years old must be available to sign for each shipment, so please take this into account when providing us with a shipping address. Carriers will not leave packages unattended regardless of having a signature on file. If you cannot have your wine shipped to your work or home,please try your local FedEx Office that accepts packages. You can have your shipment sent to a FedEx Office and someone 21 and over will be available to sign for it; they also often have flexible hours, and can hold it for 5 business days.

Pre-sale/Future:

Some of our products are sold on a "pre-arrival" or "futures" basis. These products are explicitly indicated as "pre-arrivals" or "futures" on our Website and newsletter. Biondivino will notify you by email when your "pre-arrivals" or "futures" have arrived and are ready to be shipped. You will be given the opportunity to coordinate the proper shipping address and method (we won't automatically ship out pre-arrival wines when they arrive).
