Answers to All of Your Questions About How to Ship Wine

When we ship wine, it's a federal requirement and states abide that an adult over 21 must sign for the box. If you order wine from Big Hammer Wines, make sure you are getting our emails into your inbox so that you can be aware of the tracking and follow for the ETA. On top of that, Big Hammer Wines has a large temperature-controlled facility because we also operate an import distribution company, which is our model for keeping our prices hyper-competitive and having exclusive wines.

If you're concerned about the hot weather shipping, we're happy to hold your shipment until the fall, until after Labor Day when temperatures are more agreeable for shipping wine. And similarly, for our clients in the Northern states who may be concerned about shipping wine in the early part of the year or the winter when it's below freezing, we're happy to hold your wine order until the spring when it's going to be safer to ship.
