Shipping and Returns
Due to the perishable nature of wine, we ship according to the following policies to ensure your order reaches you in the best possible condition.
• Not all orders are shipped the same day they are placed. Most orders shipped within 24-48 hours.
• Shipping on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays only. Orders placed on Wednesday, or thereafter, will be shipped the following Monday (unless requested otherwise).
• All orders are subject to weather hold due to extreme hot or cold:
Sean Minor Wines will release orders when temperature is acceptable and customers will receive email notification when shipments are released. If you would like your order released regardless, email us
and it can be arranged, although we advise against it (see below). Please be advised Sean Minor Wines will not replace any damaged wine as a result of overriding the weather hold.
IMPORTANT HEAT HOLD INFORMATION
: Any orders placed with UPS Ground shipping for delivery outside of California during warm months will be placed on heat hold and released when temperature is acceptable. Customers will receive email notification when shipments are released. All orders are subject to heat hold due to warm weather. To avoid your order being placed on heat hold and guarantee delivery date outside of CA you must select appropriate shipping method, 2nd Day Air, during warm months. Please be advised during warm months orders placed with UPS Ground Shipping can be held until weather cools in the Fall months. If you are ordering a case or more, we only ask you to pay the upgrade amount, we still cover the Ground portion of your shipping cost.
If you have questions or to learn more please visit our Shipping Policies page, if you need further assistance contact us.
ALL WINES ARE SOLD IN CALIFORNIA AND TITLE PASSES TO THE BUYER IN CALIFORNIA. We make no representation to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import wines into any state outside California. The buyer is solely responsible for shipment of wines. By placing an order, you authorize us to act on your behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver your order to you. WINES MAY BE SOLD ONLY TO PERSONS WHO ARE AT LEAST 21 YEARS OLD. IN PLACING YOUR ORDER, YOU REPRESENT TO US THAT YOU ARE AT LEAST 21 YEARS OLD. It is very important that there will be an adult (21 years or older) at the shipping address you provided to sign for the shipment as required by law. No shipments will be left without that signature so please consider shipping to a business address to minimize the possibility of missing the shipment.
Customers are responsible for additional shipping costs on missed deliveries. Also, we cannot ship to a US Postal Service Box.
RETURNS: Under California law, it is illegal to return wines once sold, except for defective wines, which may be returned for replacement within 30 days of purchase. ***10% RESTOCKING FEE AND NON-REFUND OF SHIPPING CHARGES FOR CANCELLED ORDERS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN CHARGED AND/OR SHIPPED.
