Shipping

Welcome, we're glad you're here. Read on to learn the best way to get your wine with the greatest ease and expedience.

 

DELIVERY & SHIPPING INFO

We offer free shipping on six or more bottles, always. Occasionally, we offer free shipping on fewer than six as indicated in that particular offer. All shipments go out using common carriers, such as GSO or UPS, and shipped Ground service. Prologue Wine Co. does not sell or ship wine to anyone who is under the age of twenty-one. An adult signature is required for all deliveries. 

Shipments go out up to twice a week, typically on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Some items may take up to seven business days to ship. California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, and Arizona orders will typically arrive in 1-2 days from the time of shipment. For all others, delivery typically occurs in 3-4 business days but can occasionally take longer.  

During the summer months, we may delay shipping in order to protect your wine. During times of extreme heat, orders are shipped in climate-controlled trucks. Ice packs or expedited shipping may be added for an additional fee at checkout. You may also choose to have your order held in our warehouse for no extra charge.

If you selected "HOLD MY ORDER/BUILD A CASE" at checkout, your order will be held in our climate-controlled warehouse until the quantities reach the six-bottle threshold for free shipping. There is no charge for this service. If you'd like your order held longer, simply contact us at hello@prologuewine.com.

We highly recommend using a business address to receive your products. An adult signature is required for delivery. Instructions such as, "Leave at back porch" or "Leave behind rail" will not be followed.

Due to ever-changing laws, we currently do not ship to Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, or Vermont. This list may change at any time, with or without notice. 

Prologue Wine Co. does not sell or ship wine to anyone who is under the age of 21. An adult signature is required for all deliveries. The carriers we use all have enhanced safety procedures in place, including contactless signature-delivery options to minimize contact between recipient and driver.

We highly recommend insuring your order. Third-party shipping insurance is available at checkout, provided by Route and backed by Lloyds of London.

If a wine you purchased is flawed or otherwise unfit for consumption, we will exchange or credit the product back to your account, less return shipping and a 15% restocking fee.  Per California law, we can only accept returns for wine that is broken, damaged, or flawed. We cannot accept returns for any product which has been in your possession more than one month after delivery receipt, as we have no way of knowing its storage conditions.
