ORDER PROCESSING: In general, orders are shipped as received and within 24 hours of order placement. Mission Fine Wines is open Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. Orders placed after 3:00 pm EST will ship the following business day regardless of shipping method. Orders placed over the weekend will be fulfilled the first business day after the weekend.
UPS & FEDEX GROUND are our standard shipping methods. Mission Fine Wines will not ship to a PO box, an APO address or a college. All wines are shipped in styrofoam and cardboard to ensure safe transit. You may opt for expedited shipping at checkout.
INSURANCE against breakage or loss is included in the shipping cost. In cases of very costly purchases, additional insurance may be required and costs will be adjusted when payment is processed.
PROOF OF AGE: You must be 21 years old to purchase wine from Mission Fine Wines. All orders are shipped via common carrier and proof of age is required to take delivery. In cases of delayed shipment, Mission will attempt to establish contact before shipping to ensure that an adult will be available to receive the order.
WEATHER CONDITONS: Mission Fine Wines may hold orders in our temperature-controlled warehouse if we consider it too warm or cold to ship to your area. If a delivery is time-sensitive, please call or email and reference your order number and we can offer options for expedited delivery including overnight, 2-day and 3-day service. Unless otherwise specified, west-coast orders are shipped on Mondays to avoid package layovers in warehouses as storage conditions cannot be guaranteed.

HOLDING INVENTORY: Upon request, Mission Fine Wines will hold your wine in our temperature-controlled warehouse in order to consolidate purchase, wait for ideal weather, wait for pre-arrival wines or to arrange future pick-up.
