Can you ship to my state within the United States?
Unfortunately, a number of legal issues dating back to the days of prohibition impose strict regulations on how alcohol can cross state lines. Therefore, at the present time certain local laws prevent us from shipping to certain states below.
We ship to all United States except:
How long does shipping take from NY?
In order to calculate the estimated number of business days (Monday-Friday) it will take for your order to arrive, take into consideration which coast you are ordering from. Approximate shipping estimations for the East Coast is 1-3 business day, Midwest is 3-4 business days, and to the West Coast is 4-5 business days. To check the shipment status, all FedEx transit times will be in effect after your order is shipped.
If I place an order today, when will it ship / be ready for pick up?
Most orders placed before 2:00 PM ship the same day providing all items are in stock.
A small percentage of items require a longer ship-out time (2-4 business days). On rare occasions we may face an unforeseen delay in shipping your order and in that case, we will notify you by email. If we face insufficient inventory to fulfill your order, you will be notified as soon as possible.
Due to carrier pick up times restrictions we do not ship on weekends or major holidays. Orders placed on Friday will usually ship on Monday or Tuesday of the following week.

Are prices on the website the same as in the store?
We give the same low prices to all our customers whether it is in the store or on GetWineOnline.com. However, the Website usually has various sales and different promotions than the store resulting in different pricing.
If an item is on your website, can I just come to the store and buy it?
Call customer service first to verify the item you want is on the store floor and accessible by customers.
What is required in order for me to pick up my order at your store?
You must bring a valid photo identification card and a print out of the order confirmation for the order that you are picking up.
Does an item on the website guarantee the quantity that I am requesting on my order?
When you see an item on the website, that does not guarantee we have the quantity ordered. However, we will order what is needed and have it delivered to us the next day.
Do I have to buy a full case, or can I order any amount of bottles?
Most of the items can be purchased at any quantity, no limitations. However, some items are marked as "Case Only". Those are the items that are sold by full case. To take advantage of maximum savings, we encourage our customers to purchase a full case.
What type of payment do you accept?
We only accept major credit cards including Visa, Master Card, AMEX and Discover.
My credit card keeps declining, what can be the problem?
There can only be 3 reasons for this - 1) The billing address could be wrong. Confirm that your billing address has correctly been inputted into the billing info page. Wherever your credit card statement gets mailed (business or residential) is typically your billing address. 2) The credit card company recently put a fraud detection security on the card. In that case, please call your credit card company directly to clear the hold. 3) The credit card has reached its credit limit.
Please note: Do not try to use the same credit card more than three times; otherwise the system will consider that to be a security threat and block you from placing any orders for a 24 hour period.
If you believe none of the above conditions are true in your case and you still could not place your order, our customer care professionals might be able to solve this issue for you. Please call for assistance our customer care department at 1 (800) 518-0899.
Will I get charged tax on my order?
If the order is shipping outside of New York or Connecticut, there is NO tax. If the order is shipping within New York, a sales tax of 8.375% is applied to your order automatically. For Connecticut, the sales tax is 6.35%. Shipping is also taxable in both NY and CT.
