Sales and Shipping
While Schug Winery takes steps to ensure that your wines are shipped timely, properly, and in a manner that would provide adequate protection, the ultimate responsibility for shipping remains with the customer and the carrier. Rates, transit times, and shipping methods available are subject to change at any time without prior notice.
- By law, wine must be shipped to adults aged 21 years or older and cannot be shipped to P.O. boxes or left on premises without a signature.
- We recommend shipping to a commercial address, or an address where an adult is always present, to ensure delivery on the first attempt.
Please allow 24 business hours advanced notice for shipping or pick up requests. If your request needs immediate attention, please call the winery (707) 939-9363 to make necessary arrangements and we will do our best to meet your needs.
Shipping in Extreme Weather
We want your shipping experience to be as low stress as possible, but we care about your wines too. For that reason, your shipments may not be released in extreme weather unless you specifically provide us with permission to do so.
Most customers choose to ship “weather permitting”, meaning wine shipments are not released until temperatures are between 20°F and 80°F at our winery, on your ship date, and at your shipping destination on your estimated delivery date.
If you would like to ship your wine as quickly as possible no matter the weather, you may request that we “ship regardless of the weather” when placing your wine order online. This means you understand that the risks of shipping wine in hot or cold weather include: fresh seepage, elevated or depressed corks, and more. If you choose to ship “regardless of weather”, we will honor no claims made on the condition of the wines upon delivery.
Depending on your location, expedited and temperature-controlled shipping methods may be available. Ice-pack shipper boxes are available upon request in 6-pack and 12-pack sizes for 750ml or smaller sized bottles upon request. Large format, extra wide, and oddly shaped bottles may not be eligible. Rates vary so please contact us to directly to discuss your options.
All wine is sold in the state of California and the title passes to the buyer in California. All purchases shipped to California addresses will be subject to a 7.25% sales tax except for carry out purchases or those shipped to addresses in Sonoma County where an 8.5% sales tax applies.

We consider wine to be out of our control once it has been handed over to the shipper and we cannot be responsible for improper storage after it has been delivered. Therefore, once your wine order has been picked up by the common carrier for delivery, the wine becomes your responsibility. Schug Winery is not responsible for, and will not replace wine that is damaged by, extreme weather conditions during shipment. We also cannot accept returns for the following: wines that do not coincide with personal tastes, wines that have been adversely affected by customer’s storage, and wines that have been otherwise damaged as a result of any other adverse condition occurring while the wines were in the customer’s care.
