How To Pack and Ship Your Fine & Rare Wines

Disclaimer: Please do not ship wines without first contacting the Wine department. Our team requires advance notice so we may immediately move your wines into a temperature controlled environment.

Heritage does not recommend shipping via any service slower than 2-day delivery. As with any form of shipping, there are a few guidelines we recommend you follow.

Here is a step by step guide to sending wine to Heritage.
  1. If using a shipping carrier, try to drop off or have the boxes picked up later in the day to minimize exposure to warmer temperatures during the day.
  2. Never ship your wine on a Thursday or Friday, as a delay in the delivery could leave your package sitting in an uncontrolled environment for the weekend.
  3. Always ship your wines in approved, purpose-built Styrofoam shippers. Securely pack your material inside the container. Make sure your items cannot move around. Remember that the package can encounter very rough treatment during shipping. The more packaging material between the items and shipper, the better.
  4. Address the package and affix the proper labels. Label the package in a manner that does not indicate that there is wine of value inside.
  5. Purchase enough insurance to cover the value of your shipment.
