Shipping Policy
 

Carrier
Our preferred vendor for shipping is FedEx, however advance arrangements can be made if you prefer UPS or GSO (in CA/NV only). We cannot ship alcohol to PO Boxes or APO/FPO addresses. Due to international shipping restrictions, we do not ship to locations abroad.
 

Shipping Schedule
We ship (weather permitting) on select Mondays in temperate weather to protect the wine from extreme heat and cold. Our fulfillment center assigns us one ship day per month, so if conditions are right for your area (and along the way), we’ll ship on the earliest available date. If you need the wine on a date other than those listed on our site, please contact us directly to make arrangements.


Warehouse locations
Orders shipping to destinations west of the Rocky Mountains will ship from our Napa, California, warehouse. Most orders shipping east of the Mississippi River will ship from our New York location via FedEx Ground. Midwest orders will ship from either location (based on weather, distance, and inventory) at our discretion.


Weather Advisory
If weather between our fulfillment centers and you gets really hot or cold, we will hold packages until temperatures are more suitable for safe shipment. This may delay your shipment for a week or more.  Please contact us if you want us to ship sooner during unusually hot or cold weather, as we can make arrangements for FedEx Priority Overnight delivery for an additional charge. We do this to preserve the quality of our wines and ensure they arrive to you in premium condition.
 

Missed Deliveries
After the third missed delivery attempt to you, your shipment will be returned to us. If this occurs, we will retain your original shipping charge and charge your credit card for the cost to re-ship the wine back to you.

Terms & Conditions
Robert Foley Vineyards complies with all federal, state, and local laws regarding sale of alcohol to minors. By entering this website, you verify that you are legally able to purchase and consume alcohol. You must be 21 years of age or older to shop on our website and to order wine from us, and by law, you must ship the wine to a place where an adult aged 21 years old or older with proper identification of age will receive and sign for it. We strongly suggest shipping your order to a business address whenever possible. State and Federal law, as well as FedEx and UPS policy, require an adult signature (at least 21 years of age) at the time of delivery for every package containing alcohol.


We will charge your credit card at the time your order is placed to secure your wine as we often sell out before the weather allows us to ship.

All wines are sold in California and title passes to buyer in California. We make no representation as to the legal right of anyone to ship or import wines into any state outside of California. By placing an order with us, you authorize us to act on your behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver your order to you.
