California Wine Delivery

Things to know about wine delivery in California

FYI: I find great wine deals so you don’t have to. To keep me on the hunt, I earn a commission when you buy wine based on my recommendations.

Can you ship wine to California?

Yes, you can get wine delivered to California. You may have wine sent directly to your home or office (if your workplace allows it). A person 21 years or older must sign for the package when it is delivered.

The Fine Print

Buyer beware. While we do our best to make it easy to find wine that can be delivered to your state, each winery and retailer is the final say in whether they will ship to consumers. Those that do so without a permit often disclose on their site in the Terms of Service, Legal, or Shipping pages that you are responsible for obeying the laws of your state, not the retailer.

How to get wine delivered in California

Whether you are shipping to yourself, a friend, a colleague, or a family member, you must purchase alcohol and have it mailed by an entity with a valid liquor license. As a non-licensee it is never legal for you to ship alcohol yourself in the United States, much less to CA residents. Wine may be delivered via FedEx, UPS, or other private shippers, but the USPS does not permit the shipping of alcohol of any kind. These types of services deliver wine to CA: wine subscriptions, wine stores, same-day delivery, wine gift services, and wineries.

Wine Subscriptions

Some wine of the month clubs are both retailers and wineries (like Winc and Nakedwines.com), so they are able to ship wine as a producer (a better delivery experience for CA residents). There are other legal ways to ship wine to California residents but we don’t check how each wine subscription service goes about doing it — companies who offer wine subscriptions are responsible for the legalities of their shipping policies.

Same-Day Wine Delivery

Same-day wine delivery is available throughout most of urban and suburban California. Many services provide same-day delivery in California. These companies each offer different wine by zip code and you’ll need to enter your zip code on their site to see locally-available inventory.

Wineries

In California, wineries are allowed to ship directly to consumers provided the winery complies with any licensing and reporting requirements. Common provisions of law permitting DTC wine shipping from wineries include: obtaining a license or permit prior to shipping; collection and payment of excise and/or sales taxes to the recipient state; limits on the quantities of shipments; packaging requirements to ensure wine is not delivered to underage individuals; and reporting of shipments to state authorities. — Source: WineInstitute.org

Individual wineries decide whether they ship to California so you’ll need to check winery websites for shipping for their shipping policy.
