FAQ

  • What qualifies for free shipping?

    At IsraWines.com we want you to have the very best experience from shopping to shipping. Every full case of wine you buy ships for free. That’s right, every case of 12 bottles that goes into a box ships for free. And yes, you can mix-and-match to build your own case! Unfortunately, partial cases do incur a nominal shipping fee. Ordering multiples of 12 bottles will help you avoid shipping costs.

    We will ship to Hawaii and Alaska, but cannot offer free shipping to either state.

  • Your order is important to us! We strive to ship all orders within one business day. However, the cut-off time to receive shipments is 1:00 pm Monday-Friday and 12:00 pm on Fridays and Erev Yomim Tovim.

    All shipments submitted over the weekend will be received on Monday. Texas, Illinois and Alabama have an extended shipping time of 10-21 days. At peak times (such as before the holidays) it can take a bit longer for your order to leave our warehouse.

    We ship through UPS, FedEX, LSO, and UDS; whoever will get you your package the most efficiently. The map below will help you determine how long it takes from the time your order ships to the time it’s delivered.

  • Federal regulations require an adult, with valid ID to sign for all deliveries containing alcohol. THIS IS NOT A ISRAWINES.COM REQUIREMENT THEREFORE, WE DO NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO WAIVE THIS REQUIREMENT. We recommend signing up for UPS My Choice so you can monitor your shipment, you can also make changes to the delivery address once it’s shipped.

    If you are not home to receive your shipment, UPS will leave a note on your door and make two more delivery attempts. After the third failed attempt your wine will be returned to us. You may be responsible for the cost of re-shipping orders that are returned.

    Tip: Our customers find that shipping their order to a business address increases the odds of successful delivery on the first attempt.

    Need to change your delivery date? You can use your tracking number or info notice number to make changes to your delivery!

    Sign up for a free service called UPS My Choice. This service will allow you to hold your package at a pickup facility, see a delivery time frame, or change the delivery address.
