Important Notes Regarding Gauchezco Shipments

  • Our shipping methods vary by the locations where your products are located at the time of purchase. Because we give you access to everything in stock (regardless of where it's located), we use a few different business rules. If you're having items shipped to an address, we transfer all items back to our Oakland California warehouse and ship them out from there,

  • Unless you live on the West Coast, we strongly discourage you from selecting "Ground Service" as your shipping method. During the winter and summer months, weather conditions (temperature) and longer delivery times can often result in the spoilage of your order. It doesn't make sense to invest in fine wines and then take the chance of ruining them due environmental factors during transit (faster and safer delivery generally isn't much more expensive). We don't make an additional profit on accelerated delivery, but we frequently recommend faster shipping options to our customers outside the West Coast.

  • You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages from Gauchezco. Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an "Adult Signature Required" sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that you will have to be present at the time of delivery.

  • We ship by ground or air. Our prices include packaging materials. Insurance may be available for an additional charge.

  • A small percentage of our products are sold on a "pre-arrival" or "futures" basis. These products are explicitly indicated as "pre-arrivals" or "futures" on our Web site and newsletter, along with the expected arrival dates. Gauchezco will notify you by e-mail when your "pre-arrivals" or "futures" have arrived and are ready to be shipped. You will be given the opportunity to coordinate the proper shipping address and method (we won't automatically ship out pre-arrival wines when they arrive).

  • Gauchezco will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that Gauchezco in its sole judgment believes that such shipment will not subject Gauchezco the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by Gauchezco violates the law, we suggest that the buyer provide an alternative address in another state or have their wine shipped to a third-party storage facility in a direct shipping-friendly state.


Rates displayed on the following page are based on complete shipments coming from our Northern California (Oakland) location. The actual rate will be displayed for you at the time of checkout based on the location of the items you’re ordering.

Please note that we cannot guarantee that your order will ship out the day that you place the order. The delivery guarantees refer to carrier's commitment once the order has been shipped (left our warehouse). When we receive your order we begin working to pull all the items together, pack the order, and get it shipped out.

We ship by ground or air. Our prices include packaging materials. Insurance may be available for an additional charge.
