Age Disclaimer

By using this site you swear and affirm that you are over the age of 21. Without exception, every person using the site or receiving a shipment of alcoholic beverages must be over the age of 21

Shipping and Returns

We aim to ship to mainland United States addresses in 5-10 business days. Wine will be shipped via ground or air. We utilize FedEx, GSO and UPS. Our available delivery states are always being updated. Carriers make three delivery attempts before returning orders to Seavey. It is your obligation to notify Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard of any billing or shipping changes prior to the first delivery attempt. Extra shipping charges incurred due to an incorrect address, delivery interception, and shipments returned to the winery will be charged to your account. Club members must notify Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard of any billing or shipping changes prior to the first of the next shipping month.

Wine is perishable and can be damaged by heat in transit. We do our best to make sure shipments arrive quickly and in good condition. For that reason, if the weather is too hot or too cold, at our discretion we may delay shipment until conditions are more favorable. We will keep you notified if this happens.

During June through October, we offer a temperature-controlled delivery option utilizing FedEx Cold Chain, a refrigerated ground shipping option that protects your wine, but which requires a longer shipping period than second-day or overnight shipping options.

With all of our shipping options, you will receive a tracking number via email notifying you when your wine has shipped.

State alcohol regulations require all wine shipments to be signed for by an adult over 21 years of age upon delivery.

Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard stands behind its wine. In the event that your shipment is damaged, Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyardwill replace it as soon as possible. As a general rule, we will require return of the bottles you haven’t drunk yet.
