Shipping and Delivery

Sterling Vineyards offers four choices of shipping for your orders:

  • Ground

  • Overnight
  • Priority Overnight (only available in California)

Orders placed by 12pm Pacific Time will usually ship the next day, provided there are no compliance items to resolve about your order. Upon leaving our warehouse, you will receive a shipping confirmation email with tracking numbers, if applicable. Our carriers are UPS and Fedex.

Delayed Shipping

At this time we do not offer delayed shipping except when we institute a weather hold for wine delivery quality.

Expedited Shipping

If you prefer your shipment to be sent in a different manner than you originally requested, please call (866) 363-1634 or email and a customer service representative will be pleased to assist you.

Shipping Destinations

All shipment destinations are checked against state and local regulations to ensure that we may ship to that location. A signature of someone who is at least 21 years old is required to receive any wine shipments, but this may be someone other than the person whose name is on the shipment. We recommend shipping your wine to a business or an address where a person at least 21 years old may sign for the shipment during normal business hours.

Shipment Tracking

After a shipment has left the warehouse, an email with the tracking numbers will be sent to the email address provided on the order. These tracking numbers may be used with each carrier to track your shipment. Please refer to each carrier’s web site or customer service center for tracking the shipments.

Packaging Options

Our wine is packaged in shipping containers that vary in size depending on the quantity or weight of a shipment. These packages are designed to withstand normal transit conditions. Should you require special packaging requirements, please call (866) 363-1634 or email and a customer service representative will be pleased to assist you.

Weather Related Issues that Affect Shipping

Occasionally, exceptionally warm or cold weather will prompt our shipping team to delay a shipment to an affected area to ensure that the wine shipments are not subjected to adverse travel conditions. Should a weather hold occur, we will contact you in advance with an estimated ship date from our warehouse.

Delivery Signatures

All wine shipments require a signature upon delivery by someone who is of legal purchase age. We encourage all customers to ship their wine to a location where a person who is of legal purchase age is available to sign for the wine during normal business hours. If several shipment attempts are made and no one is available to receive the shipment, it will be returned to our warehouse and may be rescheduled for delivery by calling the customer service center. Shipping charges will apply to the rescheduled shipment.

Winery Pickups

At this time, we do not offer shipment pickups at the winery. We do encourage you to visit Sterling Vineyards and to see and shop our amazing selection of wines for any occasion.

LEGAL PURCHASE AGE POLICY

Legal Purchase Age

Sterling Vineyards is committed to responsibly selling our products to only those individuals who are above legal purchase age. All wine is being sold by Sterling Vineyards, and may be sold and delivered only to a person who is of legal purchase age (21 years old). Each order from Sterling Vineyards requires you to represent to us that you are at least 21 years old and the recipient of any wine shipments is also 21 years old. At the time of delivery, any shipment containing an alcohol beverage product will require the signature of an adult with valid picture identification issued by a government agency to prove he or she is at least 21 years old.

Legal Purchase Age Verification Process

Sterling Vineyards is committed to responsibly selling our products to only those individuals who are above legal purchase age. Upon entering the Sterling Vineyards Wine Shop for the first time, we ask that all visitors verify that they are of legal purchase age for their country. In addition, every order placed through the Sterling Vineyards Wine Shop online or via our Customer Service Center is age verified. In some cases, we are not able to verify the age of the purchaser, and may suggest additional information to include in the order that will enhance our ability to verify legal purchase age. In some cases, we will ask a purchaser to call a Customer Service Representative to provide additional information before completing an order.

Unable to Verify Legal Purchase Age

In some cases, we will be unable to verify the legal purchase age of the purchaser. The best way to assist us in the age verification process is to ensure that the name and address of the purchaser is the same as a government issued identification (such as a driver’s license or passport).

If we are unable to verify that the purchaser is of legal purchase age, we will be unable to complete the order online, and suggest that you call (866) 363-1634 and speak with a Customer Service Representative.
