All orders are processed at, and shipped from, our facility in Napa, CA. We ship by ground and air using FedEx, UPS and GSO (where available) and our shipping prices include packaging materials. Insurance may be available for an additional charge. Unless you live on the West Coast, we strongly discourage you from selecting “Ground” as your shipping method. During the winter and summer months, weather conditions and longer delivery times can often result in the spoilage of your order. Expedited delivery options are generally not much more expensive and then to be worth it in order to protect your investment! Please note that when your wine order is picked up by the common carrier for delivery, the wine becomes your responsibility. Hobel Wines is not responsible for, and will not replace wine that is damaged by extreme weather conditions during shipment.
All wines are sold in California and title passes to the buyer in California. Hobel Wines makes no representations as to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import wines into any state outside of California. The buyer is solely responsible for shipment of wines. By placing an order, you are authorizing Hobel Wines to act on your behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver the items in your order.
Due to changing direct-shipping laws and regulations, the list of states that we ship to may change at any time. Hobel Wines will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that Hobel Wines in its sole discretion believes that such shipment will not subject Hobel Wines to the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by Hobel Wines may violate the law, we will contact the buyer to discuss shipping options, which options may include provision of an alternative shipping address in a state where the direct shipment of wines to consumers is permitted or storage of the wines at an acceptable third-party storage facility. Please contact Hobel Wines firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns you may have regarding our shipping policies.
Hobel Wines will notify you by email when your wines are ready to be shipped. Generally, we will attempt to ship your wines shortly after your order is placed. However, please be aware that your order may be delayed until ideal weather and shipping conditions arise to protect your wines. You will be given the opportunity to coordinate the proper shipping address and method with us at that time.
