At Hirsch Vineyards, our first and foremost goal in shipping is to get you your wine in the safest, fastest and most cost-effective way possible. If you have any questions about shipping or need assistance in choosing a shipping method, please contact us.
Below please find information that may help you in planning for your wine shipment:
We will notify you via email if your order is on weather hold. We’re happy to hold your order until the weather allows safe shipping, or you may choose to upgrade to an expedited ship method if you need the wine sooner. As wine can be damaged by exposure to extreme heat and cold, we ship via Ground service only when the forecasted temperature along the shipping route is between 40 and 79 degrees.
Choosing to ship via one of the expedited options may allow safe shipping when the forecasted temperature is between 35 degrees and 83 degrees (with ice packs). While we discourage shipping when temperatures are forecasted to be 80+ degrees, Next Day delivery by 10:30am with ice packs, if available to your area, is an option.
You must be 21+ years of age to order or receive alcohol. Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an "Adult Signature Required" sticker, and common carriers are required to ask and check for identification upon delivery.
This means an adult must be present at the time of delivery.
Shipping to a business rather than a home address can help ensure a successful first delivery attempt. Many UPS and FedEx Stores will also receive wine shipments on your behalf and hold for you to pick at a convenient time.
If your order needs to arrive by a specific date, such as for a gift or prior to travel, please contact us.
