Important notes regarding FPWM shipments:
IMPORTANT LEGAL DISCLAIMER: We are Wine Merchants, not attorneys. When you purchase wine from FPWM, title changes hands here in CA, and you engage us to arrange for delivery on your behalf. Under no circumstances do we make ANY representation as to the legality of shipping beverage alcohol to your locale. Regulations concerning the inter-state shipment of beverage alcohol vary on a state by state basis, and owe their genesis to the 21st Amendment repealing Prohibition. They are arbitrary, confusing, inconsistent, subject to interpretation, and are being challenged in state and federal courts even as you read this message.
You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages from Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant. 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 must to be present at the time of delivery. We recommend shipping to a business address whenever possible. Shipments that do not contain beverage alcohol are not subject to restrictions.
We pack and ship via common carriers Monday through Friday. During periods of extreme weather, we attempt to ship wines at the beginning of each week in order to get your orders to you before the weekend. This is because we have no control over the temperature conditions at our freight carriers' warehouses. The result may be that your shipment doesn't go out the day that you place an order, and may be delayed until ideal conditions for shipment arise. During periods of extreme temperatures you may wish to select an expedited shipping method. While expedited shipping is expensive, you may rest assured our shipping rates are calculated to cover the costs involved and no more.
We deliver in San Francisco using our own vehicles. Delivery days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Web orders will be delivered the next delivery day after they are placed.
If you live in a state where the direct shipment of wine by a merchant violates the law, we suggest that you provide an alternative address in another state, or have your wine shipped to a third-party storage facility in a direct shipping-friendly state. As a customer service, we have compiled a listing of these facilities below. They are not affiliated with FPWM. We do not provide an endorsement of any facility and we recommend that you contact the facility directly to determine if their costs and services meet your needs.
