It’s human nature to want things we can’t have, or things which are rare. With wine it’s no different. Maybe it’s that bottle you had in Tuscany, made by a producer who does not import to the U.S., or a wine you read about, made by a small group of nuns in Campania, but they only produce 80 cases a year. I get it, as I, too, covet and wonder about such bottles. Thing is, rarity alone doesn’t make something good. It just means there isn’t much of it. But it’s also true that some of the most intriguing wines are those which are made in small lots, crafted with care, by hand, and with love. (sooo cheesy, but I couldn’t come up with another word)
Those are the wines we’ll taste in this special seminar all about California. Most will be small lots of limited-production wines, yes, but they must also be delicious, and provide a window into what makes the Golden State so special. We may taste a wine from Napa or Sonoma, but lesser known sites are more likely to make the cut. El Dorado County comes to mind, as does Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, or bottles from Tehama County, one of California's most northerly AVA's.
We’ll meet three times, tasting a pair of whites in the first class, followed by red wines in the second and third classes. And while some will be big and bold (California’s forte), others will be delicate and pretty, lithe and supple. In other words, something for everyone, but far from ordinary.
We offer the following shipping speeds:
Day-definite delivery typically in one to five days, depending on distance.
Delivery by the end of the third business day.
Delivery by the end of the second business day to most areas.
Delivery by the end of the next business day.
*PLEASE NOTE THAT DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC SHIPPING TIMES ARE NOT GUARANTEED BY CARRIERS. UPGRADING MAY HELP GET YOUR ORDER TO YOU SOONER BUT EXACT DATES ARE UNCERTAIN AT THIS TIME.
Orders are shipped out from our warehouse Monday through Friday in the afternoon, and tracking will be activated shortly after. Orders placed are typically shipped out next business day.
Our primary carriers are UPS and FedEx. We use FedEx as our carrier for wine orders throughout CA, ID, LA, NV, NM, ND, Wash DC, WV and WY. If you'd like to request UPS for your shipment, please note it on your order in the cart page before proceeding to checkout.
Please not that shipping does not get less expensive the more bottles you add—it depends on the total weight and how many boxes need to be used to send your order. The most cost-effective option will always be to order in multiples of 12.
We cannot ship any spirits or liqueurs beyond California at this time.
HOLD FOR FUTURE SHIPMENT
If weather conditions are unfavorable for the safe transport of your wine at the time of purchase, we are happy to hold your order at our facility for up to 6 months until weather conditions improve.
If you choose to ship your order Ground during such conditions, Bottle Barn is not liable for any damage caused by the weather to those wines.
Please note that when weather conditions are unfavorable and may cause damage to the wine in transit, we will automatically hold unless you request immediate shipment. In shipping against our recommendations you are waiving your right to a refund if the wine is damaged by extreme temperatures in transit.
As a courtesy instead of shipping you can also choose to pick-up your wine at our Santa Rosa store. To place an order for Store Pick-Up, please enter a local "shipping" address at checkout to see Store Pick-Up as a "shipping" option. Your wine will not be shipped, but this helps us verify you are local and able to pick-up. You may also enter our store address if you would prefer.
Items purchased online are generally available in store the same or next business day, and you will receive a notification via email when it is ready.
Store pick-ups will be held for at least 48 hours from the time you are notified the order is ready. If you have extenuating circumstances and need to extend your hold, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
