Preserving the integrity of your wine during shipping is a responsibility we take very seriously at SommSelect. Summer Shipping is now activated! Read on for more details:
Climate Controlled Ground Shipping:
CCG, as it's affectionately known here at SommSelect, is our first line of defense. CCG gets your wine as close to you as possible in a refrigerated vehicle, but may require an unrefrigerated local carrier for the last mile. Although CCG may extend your shipping time, it ensures that your wine stays in a safe, temperature-controlled environment for the majority of its travels to you.
With the CCG shipping, wines are packed and shipped each Friday in a climate-controlled truck headed to the local shipping gateway in your region. Tracking information is sent to customers via email once the package is labeled by our 3rd party shipping company. Once the package arrives at the local shipping gateway, your wine is handed off to your local carrier for its final transit via standard ground to your delivery address; this is when your tracking information will update. Total time for delivery from the time the package leaves our warehouse is approximately 7 to 10 days, assuming there are no delays.
*Not applicable for MO & SD. See details below.
Every Monday, our team will evaluate the 7-day forecast from the National Weather Service to determine if wine can ship safely to your state. When temperatures reach 85 degrees, Climate Controlled Ground shipping cannot guarantee to keep your wine stable in transit. If it's not safe to ship, we will hold until the following Monday, when we will re-evaluate. If your state is under an Extreme Heat Hold, you'll be notified both at checkout and via email. You will receive tracking information for your wine when it is safe to ship. Please click on the paragraph header to see what states are currently on Extreme Heat Hold.
$1 Per Bottle + Pre-Paid Shipping
Your wine will be held in our climate-controlled warehouse for shipping after October 1st. Due to the volume of Summer Holds, requests for earlier shipments cannot be granted.
Build a Case:
All Build-a-Case orders will be held through the summer, and shipped by October 1 at the latest. All fees will be waived until September. For more information on how our Build a Case program works, please click here.
*Missouri & South Dakota: Bodega is a third-party wine shipping company used for shipments to MO & SD. Orders are processed in our warehouse and picked up weekly on Tuesday. Tracking is sent directly from Bodega once orders are shipped. If you need to make adjustments to your shipment please contact Bodega Shipping Co.
Regardless of your chosen shipping method, remember to make sure that someone 21 or older is available to receive your package on the first delivery attempt. After that, we can’t guarantee the temperature protection of your wine.
