Shipping Policy

Extreme Weather

VDLT recommends against shipping wine during extreme climate seasons - especially summer months. Sometimes shipment is delayed. If you need accommodations, indicate in the notes section on the shopping cart page and we can advise you of your options. 


Age Requirement

The purchase of alcohol by persons under the age of 21 is prohibited by law. You must be at least 21 years of age to purchase wine or spirits. By placing an order through our website, you are representing yourself to us as at least 21 years of age. We reserve the right to ask for proof of identity before processing an order. An adult signature with proof of age verification is required at time of delivery. Please be aware that someone over the age of 21 must be available to sign for the package. If no one is available at the time of delivery, the package will not be left. We cannot ship wine to PO Boxes or APO addresses.


Carrier and Delivery Times

We ship Ground, Next Day Air, and 2nd Day Air:
 • Ground Service - approximately 1-6 business days in transit • 2nd Day Air - 2 business days in transit • Next Day Air - 1 business day in transit All orders will be confirmed via e-mail and processed within 2 business days (Mon-Fri). We will contact you by the end of the next business day if there are any problems with your order. You will be promptly notified by email of any unexpected delays in processing and/or shipping. During times of bad weather, we recommend using 2nd Day or Next Day shipping to avoid spoilage.


Restricted States

Please note that some states/territories have laws on the shipment of alcohol that prohibit us from shipping to addresses in those states. Presently, we are unable to ship to the following states/territories: Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, South Dakota and Utah, as wells Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
