Breakups are hard... but usually for the best.
Due to a change in ownership at our wine partner, we are no longer able to offer the service of adding wine to your box and shipping them together. This was an unfortunate and sudden end to an over 10-year relationship. While this will not affect the majority of our customers, as most of our boxes were ordered without wine and hand delivered, we still liked being able to provide this service.
If you find yourself in a situation where you need to ship the box to the recipient and would like to ship wine to them as well, we do have a few suggestions.
1) Find a local wine shop or winery that has the ability to ship the wine box with wine to the couple. Order a wine box from us and ship it to yourself. Once it arrives take it, along with the packaging it came in, to the establishment. They can then pack it together and reship it in the cardboard box to the recipient(s). Request that they insure the package against damage.
2) Contact a winery / wine store with delivery service in the area where the couple lives. Purchase a wine box from us and ship it directly to the recipient(s) including a note card* stating wine will be arriving separately. The recipient(s) will then be able to fill the box with wine once both packages arrive.
3) Purchase a gift card from a winery / wine store in the area where the couple lives. Have the gift card mailed or emailed to the recipient. Purchase a wine box and ship it directly to the recipient including a note card* stating a gift card for the wine will be arriving separately. The recipient(s) will then be able to fill the box with wine of their choice once both packages arrive.
4) Purchase wine from an online retailer who will ship wine directly to the recipient. Purchase a wine box and ship it directly to the recipient(s) including a note card* stating wine will be arriving separately. The recipient(s) will then be able to fill the box with wine once both packages arrive.
*During the customization process of the wine box on the product page, you have an option to add a note card.

An individual without a liquor license cannot ship wine. Laws regarding the shipment of wine / liquor vary by state and can be very complicated; which is why it is important to check with the state laws before purchasing wine for shipping. Here are a few resources with comprehensive wine shipping information: DTC by State and DTC for Wineries.
We will always do our best to continue to provide you with the best service and highest quality, handmade gifts. Please contact us with any questions.
