The VinFormants Shipping and Handling Procedures

Business Address is Best!

We strongly suggest you ship your wine to your business or commercial address. This will ensure that someone is present to sign for your package. Wine packages will be sent back to us after 3 delivery attempts. Tracking is sent upon shipper receipt.  Once the package leaves our warehouse it is the customers responsibility to track and manage delivery.

Returns: We charge all return fee's on re-shipments and a $25 return fee. The VinFormants will not refund any shipping charges or purchases if the wine is returned for any reason.  Packages that are returned, can be re-shipped with the full cost of return & shipping based on your zipcode.  Refunds on returned wines due to shipping will not be processed.

Handling fee's will be assesed in some areas based on zip code and may include fuel surcharges, out of area, & signature fee's.  Please email us directly with any questions.  We can only ship wine into compliat states. The status of some states has changed.
