Delivery & Shipping

General Info

We ship wines through UPS and we also deliver wine & spirits within Manhattan.  Per our lawyer, the buyer assumes ownership and title to any goods purchased in New York State. Taste Wine Co makes no representation to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import wines into any state outside New York. By placing an order, the buyer authorizes us to act on his/her behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver your order to you. The buyer is solely responsible for shipment of wines, all applicable excise, use and sales taxes due to another state related to the purchase of any taxable goods. In accordance with NY State law, Taste Wine Co can only sell and deliver alcohol to customers over the age of 21. We and our representatives will only release, by signature, alcohol to those in possession of a valid photo ID. Taste Wine Co also reserves the right to refuse delivery to those who are or appear to be intoxicated.

Delivery

Delivery hours typically start at 5pm and end one hour prior to closing, but we are sometimes able to make deliveries during the day.  If you need your delivery prior to 5pm it is best to arrange this in advance.  We offer free deliveries to our neighbors with a minimum $30 order.  This area includes Houston up to 20th Street, from Ave B to Broadway.  If you live in Manhattan but outside this zone and your order is between $30-100, we'll gladly deliver for a $10 fee.  And all orders over $100 are free anywhere in Manhattan, from Battery Park up to 100th Street, River to river!  We can usually get you your order within 2 hours (and oftentimes within the hour), but please feel free to call the store if you have specific time requirements.  Orders placed within 1 hour of closing might be pushed to the next day.

Shipping

We ship wine to states that allow it.  Cases currently are shipped ground via UPS Monday through Friday.  We do not ship in the extreme heat or cold, but would be happy to store ordered wine for you until such time that the extreme temperatures have abated. Orders will incur a shipping charge commensurate with the location the wine is being shipped to.

At this time we unfortunately do not ship spirits.  

We do not ship anything internationally.

We came callin, but nobody was home:

Since we require an adult signature, if there is nobody home when we attempt to deliver we will unfortunately have to return the delivery to the store's inventory.  Such orders will be subject to a restocking fee.

Special order:

We love finding tough to get bottles for our customers, but orders for special items will require a deposit.  Deposits will be refunded 100% if we are unable to get the wine requested.  Cases not paid for will result in deposits being forfeited.
