Shipping Policy

We use UPS for all our shipping. We are unable to ship to PO boxes.

Occasionally some items are temporarily out of stock. You will be notified of any shipping delay at the time of order.

Shipping costs are calculated after you have added items to your shopping cart and are based on size, weight, and zone chosen.

Due to the restrictions of many state laws, we only ship wine to those states where direct shipment is permitted by law.

In addition, each state imposes limitations on the amount of wine any particular adult state resident may receive by direct shipment. To ensure that you are able to order wine for direct shipment from our website, please consult the specific state requirements or contact us.

Please note that all orders must be placed by persons over the age of 21 years, and that age verification will be required upon receipt of your wine. No wine will be delivered to visibly intoxicated persons and any person unable to provide age verification will forfeit their right to receive the shipment until identification is produced. In such circumstances the order may either be held in storage at a local depot of the shipping company until appropriate identification is produced, or shipped back to the winery. All associated costs will be the responsibility of and be charged to the customer.

California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
Here at Chenoweth Wines, it’s our mission to embed our core values into the company’s local and worldwide winemaking and business practices.  As part of that mission, we focus on our three most important resources: our rich coastal vineyards, our award-winning wines, and the people who make possible everything we do.  That care for our people extends to those who are employed by us and to ensuring that those who aren’t – including all members of our supply chain – are treated with dignity.  

On January 1, 2012, the Transparency in Supply Chains Act came into effect which requires certain retailers and manufacturers doing business in California to publicly disclose their efforts, if any, to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains.

We do not use any forced labor in our operations and we expect the same of our business partners and suppliers.  Accordingly, all of our employees are charged with identifying and working with reputable suppliers that are committed to complying with all federal, state, and foreign laws regarding labor practices.

When we source from suppliers, we typically do so from suppliers located in the United States, and we typically do not engage suppliers from countries with an increased risk of human trafficking and slavery. We monitor supplier behavior and compliance to ensure that our suppliers meet our high standards.  We encourage our suppliers doing business in countries with increased risk to enroll with third party audit organizations like Fedex, the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange.  It is our policy to cease doing business with any supplier who participates in human trafficking or forced labor practices. If we discover a concern with one of our suppliers, we may require appropriate corrective action or terminate the relationship.

We have and are continuing to educate our employees who are involved in the procurement of goods and services about the Transparency in Supply Chains Act and the steps that should be taken to identify, cure, and guard against any use of forced labor in our supply chains.Content here when I have it.
