Shipping & Returns
Shipping methods & costs
Shipping costs are determined by weight and include the cost of deluxe wine shippers and adult verification at delivery by UPS. All wine shipments require an adult (over 21-years) signature for receipt. Delivery driver is required to ask for ID to verify age.
If an item in your order isn't available for immediate shipment, we will notify you and offer a substitution recommendation or provide the option of holding your order until all items are available for shipment. We cannot ship wine or items that include wine to PO Boxes.
Sophie's Cellars does not ship on weekends and major holidays. Additionally, under extreme weather conditions Sophie's Cellars reserves the right to delay the release of shipments to ensure product quality.
Sophie's Cellars ships all orders from:
25179 Hwy 116

In some instances state law regulates product availability and/or wine purchase limitations. Working within state and local laws may prevent our ability to fulfill order requests.
Out of stock items
Though we continually monitor inventory to ensure product availability, there are times when products may be out of stock. If that occurs, wine representatives are available to suggest comparable substitutions. In cases where a substitution is necessary, we will call you before shipping and provide the option to select other items. If you decide not to make a substitution, we will ship available items minus the out of stock item(s) or cancel the order if you prefer to do so. Your credit card will not be charged until we ship your order, and you will not be charged for out-of-stock items.

Sophie's Cellars processes refunds to the credit card used at time of purchase upon receiving your returned shipment. Please allow 1-2 billing cycles for the refund credit to appear on your statement.
