Do you offer a case discount online?
Yes! When you purchase 12 or more eligible items, you will receive a 10% case discount in the shopping cart. An eligible item typically is a product that does not already have a discount. Sampler packs that already have discounts applied to them them do not count towards the minimum of 12 eligible items. The vast majority of the products on this site are eligible for the case discount.How will I know when I can pick up my wine from your store?

Can I get the same wines online as you have in your store?
If a wine is on our website, you’ll also find it in our store. But if a wine is in our store, you might not find it on our website. We recently launched our online store so we are in still “beta” mode. As we learn and develop during this period, we plan to expand what we offer online. At this time we do not offer "pre-arrival" sales on our website. If you don’t see a wine on our website that you believe we have available, email us at email@example.com
or call at 510-524-1524.
How do you ship wine when temperatures are very hot or very cold?
We take the shipping of your wine very seriously and recommend postponing shipments during periods of very hot (highs of 80° or more) or very cold (highs of 25° or below) weather. If we find that the weather in your area is either too hot or too cold to ship, we will contact you. We then hold the wine at our retail store and we will contact you when weather improves in your area. If you feel that our prediction for weather in your area is not accurate and would like your wine shipped anyway, just let us know and we’ll send it along.There’s an issue with my order.
