You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages from Vines On Pine / http://www.vinesonpine.com/. Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an "Adult Signature Required" sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that you will have to be present at the time of delivery. It is highly recommended that you provide us with a business shipping address for best service. Customer comments on their order such as "Please leave on back porch" or "Please leave at front door" will be ignored! We will not be able to refund any shipping charges if your package comes back to us because there was no adult to sign for the wine!
All shipments containing alcohol require an adult (21+) signature for delivery. UPS/Fed EX will require proper ID and will make up to three delivery attempts before returning a shipment to us. All shipping charges are non-refundable. Therefore, we strongly recommend shipping to a business address.
The sale and shipping of wine is regulated by each and every individual state therefore we cannot ship to every state. Currently the states that we may NOT ship beverage alcohol to are: Alaska and Hawaii. Customers who wish to shop our site from these states or send products to these states may only order non-alcoholic products. Gourmet Baskets without beverage alcohol, Accessories, Stemware and Fancy Foods can be shipped to all 48 continental states. Vines On Pine / http://www.vinesonpine.com/ does not ship internationally.

Availability & Vintages & Pricing
Wine is finite and good vintages sell quickly. Quantities sell out and wines that are highly sought after sell the quickest. We also sell wines as 'pre-arrivals' and 'futures' meaning the wine is not yet in the country but available to sell. If you are interested in a specific wine that is not yet in we encourage you to place your order it if the quantity is still open.
We monitor our web site on a daily basis but even then there are some wines that are not immediately removed or amended due to vintage changes, out-of-stocks, etc. You will be contacted via phone or email to confirm your order within 2 business days. In some instances it may be only a question of our re-ordering the wine if we buy it from a local distributor. In other cases, we may have sold out and cannot get the requested item in stock again. Vines On Pine / http://www.vinesonpine.com/ reserve the right to make appropriate vintage substitutions when necessary. You may request that we notify you before doing so by writing "Do Not Sub" in the delivery notes box on our order page. We will then contact you if necessary.
All orders placed are usually shipped within 48 hours. Please note; we do not ship Friday through Sunday. We do however ship some orders destined for certain residential New York addresses during the weekend. There may be faster shipping options. Please email us at email@example.com or call our order department at 212-923-0584 or 212-923-0587 for more information.
