How We Ship
Standard Delivery
Most purchases are shipped from our New Jersey warehouse and scheduled to arrive within 5-7 business days of shipment of the order. Items sent directly from our suppliers may take longer, and items ordered together may not arrive in the same box. Standard Delivery option is available for all orders in the continental U.S. See below for orders going to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico or islands off the US (i.e. Martha's Vineyard, Kiawah Island, etc.) and international addresses.

Express Delivery
Wine Enthusiast offers two express delivery methods - UPS 2nd Day Air and UPS Next Day Air. All express delivery orders for in-stock items placed on the web site before 3:00pm EST will be processed and shipped the same day. Any orders placed after 3:00pm EST will ship the following business day. If any order is placed after 3:00pm EST on a Friday, the order will be processed the following Monday or the next business day.

Door to Door Delivery
With Door-to-Door Delivery, delivery persons leave your item at the first enclosure (front door, porch, basement, garage). You will be notified by phone of the delivery date and time. Delivery past the first enclosure and/or up or down stairs inside your home are not included, that would be considered White Glove Delivery.

White Glove Delivery
Wine cellars and other heavy items receive our White Glove Delivery service. With this service, we bring the item into your home, unpack it, inspect it and dispose of the packaging. Delivery is by appointment, and you will be called to arrange a day. The charge for this service is separate from standard delivery charges and stair charges may apply for locations with 5 or more steps.

Wine Refrigerators, Furniture And Other Heavy Items
Items with a noted separate shipping charge, such as heavy items, wine cellars, nitrogen systems, and oversized items cannot be shipped using express delivery methods. Any orders that combine items with a separate shipping charge and items that use the shipping chart will be charged the shipping chart fee for only those items and for the selected shipping method (Standard, 2 Day Air, or Next Day) and the separate shipping fee. The item with the extra shipping fee will not be delivered using the express delivery methods .

Standard & Express Delivery Surcharge Calculations
Standard & Express Shipping charges are determined by the total value of your order and the shipping method selected. Certain oversized and heavy items that have separate shipping charges, as indicated on the product page, are excluded from these shipping calculations. All shipping is subject to verification. Call 800.356.8466 for Saturday delivery which is subject to an additional charge. Items ordered together are not necessarily shipped the same day. We will notify you of any delay beyond 20 days.

Wine Enthusiast is dedicated to ensure that the thousands of products we store in our warehouse are in-stock and ready-to-ship. However, sometimesdemand outpaces supply and we fall short. Backordered items are still available for purchase online, and will ship as soon as they become available.

If an item is backordered, we try be as clear and accurate as we can on the item´s product page to give you estimated delivery dates. Items that are currently backordered are listed on the product page with an “Expected to ship on (Date)” near the item price. You will also find the “Expected to ship on (Date)” when you add the item to your basket, as well as on your order´s email confirmation. Please be aware that delivery dates on backordered items are approximate and subject to change.

There are times when a shipment of backordered products is unexpectedly delayed from our vendors and your promised delivery date may change. If this happens, we will send you an email indicating which item has been delayed and its new estimated shipping date. If the new shipping date is unacceptable to you, you can contact our Customer Care Department at 800.648.6058.

Please Note: Your credit card will not be charged until your order has shipped. If any item in your order is backordered, you will only be charged for the items that ship. For Gift Cards and eGift Cards, funds to pay for backordered merchandise will be immediately deducted from your balance when you place your order. Any remaining balance will be charged to your credit card once your merchandise has been shipped.
