Shipping Carrier
All packages are shipped using UPS and select carriers (depending on your region) and our shipping prices include packaging materials. You will be notified by email when your wines have been handed off to the carrier. On the eastern half of the US, this will take place at our shipping partner’s gateway in your region.

Adult Signature Required
It is highly recommended that you ship to a business or office, where someone can sign when the carrier attempts delivery.

UPS My Choice
We recommend utilizing this feature if UPS is your local carrier. This gives you the power to customize your home deliveries. For your iPhone or Android mobile device, please download the UPS My Choice App.

Shipping Options

When placing an order from SommSelect, the following options will appear during these Summer months: Climate-Controlled Ground; Climate-Controlled Ground with Ice Pack; Ground; Ground with Ice Pack; Build a Case; and Summer Hold. Please choose the best option for you (availability will vary based on your shipping location).

Climate-Controlled Ground 
Your wines are packed and shipped out each Friday in a climate-controlled truck to our shipping partner’s gateway in your region. Once it arrives the following week, your wine will be handed off to your local carrier and you will receive an email with tracking information. Your package is shipped standard ground from the gateway to your delivery address. In an effort to protect the integrity of your wine, please be aware that your order may be held at the climate-controlled gateway for ideal weather and shipping conditions.

Climate-Controlled Ground with Ice Pack 
This is the safest option in the warmer months. It’s the same as Climate-Controlled Ground except an ice-pack will be inserted at the gateway before being handed off to your local carrier.

Ground 
Ground Shipping from our warehouse in Sonoma, CA. This is not advisable during summer shipping conditions.

Ground with Ice Pack
Ground Shipping from our warehouse in Sonoma, CA with an Ice Pack.

Build a Case
You can choose the “Build a Case” option at checkout. With this option, your orders will be consolidated into your own personal case here in our warehouse. We will automatically ship your wine once your case has reached 12 bottles or 60 days has passed since your first order, whichever comes first. You’ll receive a confirmation email once your wines have been processed for shipment.

Summer Hold 
We will hold your packages in our climate-controlled warehouse in Sonoma, CA over the summer. Your packages will automatically ship when temperatures have cooled in your region. Typically, weather will permit us to safely ship your wine beginning in October/November.

Local Pickup
If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area and you’d like to come by to pick up your wine here in Sonoma, you may do so at no additional cost. We are available Monday through Friday from 10am to 4pm. To ensure your orders are available before you arrive, please email info@sommselect.com to schedule your pickup.

Shipping Delays
Please note that if the weather is too extreme in your area at the time of shipping, we may hold onto your shipment to protect the quality of the wine. We will automatically ship it out to you once weather conditions are appropriate.

State Compliance Laws
Due to ever changing direct-shipping laws and regulations, the list of states that we ship to may change at any time. All wines are sold in California and title passes to the buyer in California. We will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that in our sole discretion we believe that such shipment will not subject us 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 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.
