During Summer Shipping, we offer complimentary cold packaging on orders of 4 bottles or more. Alternatively, you may request to place your paid order on hold for shipping during optimal weather conditions. If you would like to have cold packaging for an order of 3 bottles or fewer, you may purchase cold packaging for $8 by adding this Cold Packaging item to your cart. The $8 charge for cold shipping is in addition to regular shipping fees.
Here are some tips we recommend when purchasing and shipping wines during the warmer summer months:
Our 6-pack shippers fare the best in warmer weather and 6 bottles insulate well together.Our shipments originate in California. Consider your regional location when shipping allowing 1-3 days for the Western U.S., 2-4 days for Central, and 4-9 days for Eastern U.S. when using FedEx ground or FedEx Home Delivery. In Central and Eastern U.S. regions, we recommend shipping on a Monday to avoid weekend delays. In the Western U.S., Monday through Thursday are optimal shipping days.We package and deliver your wines directly from our cellar to our local FedEx facility in the evening to minimize transit time in our local weather conditions. These packages leave the Southern California area overnight when temperatures are coolest. Take care to track your package in order to be present for the first delivery attempt and minimize any time spent in transit in your local area.When in doubt, request to have your wines on hold for better weather conditions. It is a service we are glad to provide to all of our valued wine enthusiasts at Falling Bright. Requesting a WEATHER HOLD is easy : you can place your request in the "Order Comments" section on your checkout page or you can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
