Terms and Shipping Policy
All wine orders must be placed and received by persons over the age of 21 years (by placing such order you are attesting that you & your designated recipient are over 21 years old). Age verification will be required upon receipt of your wine. No wine will be delivered to visibly intoxicated persons and any person unable to provide age verification will forfeit their right to receive the shipment until identification is produced. In such circumstances the order may either be held in storage at a local depot of the shipping company until appropriate identification is produced, or shipped back. All associated costs will be the responsibility of and be charged to the purchaser.
Unless other arrangements are made, on your behalf, Fanucchi Vineyards will engage Pack N’ Ship Direct to place your wine in wine-shippers & ship it to your specifications. Shipping address and phone numbers are required for all shipments. Wine must be received by an adult over 21 years of age with a legally valid Identification (NO drop offs). Often it is more convenient to accept delivery at a place of business.
Title to, and ownership of, all wine passes to the purchaser in the State of California; Sonoma County. Fanucchi Vineyards makes no representation to the legal rights of anyone to ship / import wines into any state outside of California. You, as the purchaser take all responsibility for the shipping of alcoholic beverage products from California to the destination you request. By placing an order, you authorize Fanucchi Vineyards to act on your behalf in processing and shipping the order, including engaging a common carrier to deliver your order for you. By arranging for transfer of the wine, Fanucchi Vineyards is providing a service to, and acting on behalf of the purchaser. By using this service from Fanucchi Vineyards, the purchaser is representing that he/she is acting in a full compliance with the destination’s local and state laws regarding the purchase, transportation and delivery of wine. The purchaser represents that he/she has obtained any required permission, paid any required fees, is working through properly licensed intermediaries where required, is legally entitled to take possession of wine and is legally entitled to take quantities ordered and attests he/she is 21 years of age.
Bounced Checks: You will be responsible for the cost & fees for any bounced checks (at least $20).
Fanucchi Vineyards Sells Wine to Adults over 21 years of age & authorizes the shipment to Adults over 21years of age within California Only.
If you are an Adult over 21 years of age, with your authorization, we may also release your wine to be packed & shipped to an adult over 21 years of age a few other states. Note: You have additional responsibilities in your jurisdiction. AND be aware every State has different limits on the quantity you may import over a given time -make sure you are not exceeding your limit before you order. The only guarantee we can make is that restrictions the list of States will change.
State restrictions are complex and CONSTANTLY CHANGING & while some are opening up for the big guys usually it becomes too costly (in time & money) for the small guys.

What are some possible alternate arrangements?
1) If you are coming to wine country soon, wine may also be shipped or delivered to your place of lodging, but orders must be placed at least two regular business days in advance (Fanucchi Vineyards has no Visitor center).
2) Here in California there are many handling facilities that specialize in properly, receiving, shipping, and storing the personal wine treasures of consumers. Since they handle far more volume than Fanucchi Vineyards, they also may be able to afford to ship where Fanucchi Vineyards can’t. (Fanucchi Vineyards makes no claim that they can. You must make your own arrangements with them.) If you wish, Fanucchi Vineyards can, on your behalf, release, ship, or deliver your wine to them (In California). You must contact them your self to make arrangements. You may then use their address for receiving your wine in the "recipient" section of the order form. Currently FanucchiVineyards.com bottle pricing includes packing & shipping within California.

All California shipments are now shipped via Golden State Overnight.
This is an over-night-express company so if the order is completely processed by 10 AM on normal business days it will be in your hands the next day anywhere in California Monday thru Saturday! Normally their is stock on hand to pack and ship out but times it may take a couple extra days to get it out of deep storage in our "cellar"; especially magnums and older vintages and even new wines in times of high volume orders but in California it will go out Overnight Express to get it quickly from storage directly to you!
