SHIPPING POLICY

For residents outside of California, you have the choice of two shipping companies: FedEx nationwide and UPS. All California resident shipments utilize GSO (Golden State Overnight). The best value shipping carrier will automatically be selected for you at checkout based on your shipping state.

All shipments containing alcohol must be signed for. It is illegal to ship to a P.O. box.

Taxes are applied at checkout based on your shipping address.

Unfortunately, it is not feasible for us to have licenses in all states. We are currently unable to ship to the following: AR, DE, IN, ME, MS, NE, NJ, RI, SC, UT, VT or WV.

However, we are in the process of acquiring licenses for the state of IN. While many states are very behind due to COVID, we have now opened up IN in our order system. Please be aware that there may still be delays as we have not yet received this license. As soon as we acquire the license, we will ship out the wine. If you would prefer to wait until the license is acquired, please check this page for updates and be sure to read our newsletters.

 
Special Notes

ALABAMA residents: All orders must be shipped to an ABC liquor retail store where you will pay state taxes and a form must be filled out and submitted to us prior to shipping. Please download the forms below and email the completed Direct Import Authorization to Caston (caston@palomavineyard.com) if you are interested in shipping to Alabama. Once submitted, you can proceed with placing your order on our website.

KENTUCKY residents: Kentucky has created an additional tax associated for out of State alcohol purchases of 10% applied to 70% of the retail cost of the purchase. Unfortunately, this is a cost that we will have to pass on to the customer. You will see an additional tax applied to your bill at checkout. Additionally, Kentucky still has “dry zones”, therefore we are required to have our Kentucky customers sign an affidavit confirming that they do not reside in a “dry zone” prior to shipping any wine. Thank you kindly for your understanding.

TENNESSEE residents: (As of June 2022) Tennesse has recently made changes to their licensing process that increases the cost over 10 fold. Unfortunately, this is too expensive for a small producer like us. Therefore, regretfully, we will no longer be able to ship to Tennessee after August 20th, 2022. The good news is that some lawmakers in Tennessee are pushing back on this and we could see this reversed in the near future. If you are wanting to make a purchase before our license expires, please be sure to select 2-day air at checkout, as we do not ground ship in the summer months because of the risk this poses to your wine.

For the well-being of your wine, we recommend 2-day air whenever possible; it is available year-round.
