Where can I ship?
We ship non-alcoholic accessories (glassware, gifts, tools etc) to all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Our product availability varies, and Bauer Wines cannot guarantee stock. At this time, we are not able to ship internationally. We do not ship to APOs, FPOs or PO Boxes.
Why is shipping not available to my address?
Due to state restrictions, we cannot ship alcohol to all addresses.
How much does it cost to get items shipped?
The shipping rate will be based on the weight of the contents and the service selected for shipment. The rate for each selection will be reflected in your shopping cart and will update as items in the cart are added or removed.
How do I qualify for free shipping?
At this time, we do not offer free shipping. Shipping fees are determined by FedEx.
Can I request contactless shipping?
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer contactless shipping since packages contain alcohol. All orders must be signed for by someone over age 21.
What are the different shipping methods?
The available options for shipping are: Overnight, 2-Day Air and Ground. In most cases we are shipping within the ship to state, which allows Ground shipping orders to deliver in one to two business days. Overnight and 2-Day Air delivers Monday-Friday only. Ground service includes delivery through Saturday.
When will my order ship?
We process and ship orders the same business day when received before 3 p.m. local time. Shipping orders placed after 3 p.m. local time will ship the following business day; those placed after 3 p.m. on Friday will ship the following Monday, regardless of delivery method.
We are having extreme weather conditions; will my delivery be safe?
Bauer Wine & Spirts may hold a wine shipment during extremely hot weather to protect the quality of items purchased. These occurrences are most likely during summer months in southwestern states. When we temporarily hold your shipment, we’ll notify you by email.
Can I ship items to multiple addresses?
Unfortunately, you cannot split one order to go to multiple addresses. Each address requires a unique order be placed.
I want to ship a gift, what do I do?
On the Order Review page during checkout, you may select the gift option and include a personalized note. Please note, the recipient must be 21 years of age or older to accept the delivery.
I want to change my shipping address, what do I do?
Customers can use FedEx Delivery Manager, an easy, no-cost option offered by our shipping partner. It’s the most efficient way to manage delivery of your FedEx shipments.
What if I'm not home when my shipping order arrives?
Upon delivery, our delivery partners will ask to see the receiver’s ID to ensure they are 21 or older. The receiver will also be required to sign for the order. If you are unable to be home, we will make two additional attempts to deliver your order, and then it will be held at the shipper’s distribution center.
Can someone else receive my order?
Anyone over the age of 21 at the delivery address will be able to receive the order.
