If a bottle gets damaged in transit and the carrier lets us know, we'll get a new shipment out right away. If you receive a damaged bottle that is not due to extreme weather issues, please contact us immediately. Let us know your order number, which wine(s) are impacted and we'll send you a replacement. Please contact Customer Care so we may assist you.

Our policy is for 100% customer satisfaction. So if there is anything wrong with your wines, delivery or experience that is within our control, please contact Customer Care so we can correct the issues.

Do you accept returns or refunds?

We do not accept returns of wines and wine purchases are non-refundable. At Uncorked.com, we guarantee every wine we sell. If you are not 100% satisfied with any wine you have purchased from us, we will gladly provide a replacement. Upon request, undeliverable shipments will be reshipped at the expense of the customer. We are unable to hold wines returned to us as undeliverable for more than six months. Wines not claimed after six months will be destroyed.

Can I use a debit card?

Yes, we accept debit cards as form of payment. Your card processor will approve the transaction and charge the card at the time of the order. The final authorization to the card is at the time of shipping.

Who processes my order?

All sales are made by entities that hold the necessary licenses to sell wine to consumers.

Shipping

Order Delay Notice

Due to shipping, trucking, and fulfillment center bottlenecks, some orders may be delayed. Check Order Status to track your order and shipping status. Thank you for your patience. Please note: Due to high order volumes during the holiday season, orders may be delayed.

Where’s my order?

Once we receive your order, processing and handling can sometimes take up to 2 business days, except for Illinois. Illinois will take up to 3 to 5 business days. Once your package ships, you will receive an email confirmation with tracking number.

Please note: Due to nationwide shipping and trucking bottle necks, some orders and deliveries may be delayed. Thank you for your ongoing patience as we enter this busy season.

Why doesn’t my tracking number work? (It isn’t updating.)

For most states, you will get your tracking number in your ship confirmation email as soon as your wine leaves our warehouse. However, for Illinois shipments, your tracking number status will not update until the wine reaches the state. If you have further questions, please contact Customer Care and include your order number for an update.

Which states do you ship to?

We currently ship to 37 U.S. states: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, KS, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, VT, WA, WI, WY.

We are sorry, in order to adhere to state regulation, we cannot ship wine to the following states at this time: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, and West Virginia.

What are my shipping options?

During non-summer months, generally from September to May, we offer FedEx 2 Day (our recommended), as well as FedEx Ground, and FedEx Standard Overnight shipping for all states we currently ship to, except for Illinois. For Illinois, we currently partner with UPS and offer UPS Ground service.

During warmer summer months, generally from May-August, we offer FedEx Priority Overnight (our recommended) at a discounted rate for all states we currently ship to. For select states that qualify, we offer the option of including an ice pack with FedEx Next Day Air or FedEx 2Day shipping methods. The exception remains for Illinois. For Illinois, we continue to partner with UPS and offer UPS Ground service.

Do you offer flat-rate shipping?

In the past year, the common carriers have imposed rate increases, fuel surcharges, and Covid surcharges. Additionally, due to supply issues, the cost of packing materials to our suppliers has dramatically increased this year as well. When compounded, these factors have left us with significantly higher freight rates.

Up until now, Uncorked.com has absorbed these additional fees hoping that the increased costs would be temporary. Unfortunately, these increases appear to be more permanent. Regrettably, as a result, we will no longer be able to offer $9.95 flat rate shipping. 

We value all of our customers and strive to provide a superior online experience. We want to offer the best pricing available and apologize that we are unable to continue to provide flat rate shipping.

What days do you ship?

We currently ship Monday - Friday. We are currently unable to facilitate weekend deliveries.

Note for Illinois shipments: We only ship Mondays and Wednesdays. Orders will take up to 5 days for delivery.

  • Orders placed Saturday-Tuesday will ship Wednesday. Orders placed Wednesday-Thursday ship Monday.
  • You will receive a shipping confirmation and tracking number when the shipment reaches the state, usually the day prior to or the day of delivery. We do not offer expedited shipping options to the state of Illinois. 
What is your shipping cut-off?

We process and ship orders the next business day when received before 8 pm Central Time/ 6 pm Pacific Time. Orders placed after 8 pm CT/6 pm PT will ship the following business day; those placed on Friday after 8 pm CT/6 pm PT will ship the following Monday, regardless of delivery method.


Note for Illinois shipments: We only ship Mondays and Wednesdays. Orders will take up to 5 days for delivery.

Do you offer expedited shipping?

Yes, we offer FedEx Standard Overnight shipping for all states we current ship to, except for Illinois. We do not offer expedited shipping to Illinois. Please note that our Shipping Cut-off is 8pm CT/6pm PT. Orders received after this time will be processed the next business day and will ship the following business day.

What are the options for hot or cold weather shipping?

Wine does not like extreme temperatures. Hot humid summer and cold winter weather may adversely affect the condition of your wine during shipment. When your Uncorked wine order is picked up by the common carrier for delivery, responsibility for the wine becomes the responsibility of the purchaser. No insurance for heat or cold damage is provided by the shipper. Uncorked is not responsible for and will not replace wine that is damaged by extreme weather conditions during shipment.

We recommend selecting FedEx 2Day or our discounted summer shipping offer with FedEx Priority Overnight (when available) for most states. (The exception is IL, where UPS Ground is the shipping method offered.) If you need your wine by a certain date during extreme temperatures, we highly encourage expedited shipping, such as FedEx Overnight, and ice packs, when available. 

Upon request, we can hold your shipment until weather patterns change. Please contact Customer Care immediately with your order number.

What are the holiday shipping cutoffs?

Make sure your wines or gift get there in time for the holidays. We'll publish ordering cutoff dates for major holidays as a guide depending on where you are shipping.

  • Thanksgiving (Illinois): 11/10
  • Thanksgiving (All Other States): 11/18
  • Christmas (Illinois): 12/09
  • Christmas (All Other States): 12/16
  • New Years: 12/21

We recommend allowing at least 2 weeks for delivery during major holiday windows.

If you’ve missed the ordering cutoff, send an Uncorked e-Gift Card instead — they are delivered via email in minutes.

Why is a signature required for delivery?

By law, all alcohol orders require an adult 21 or older signature for delivery, so please send your wine or gift to a home or business address where an adult 21 or older is present to sign for receipt. We cannot deliver to P.O. Box addresses.

Alternatively, shipping to a FedEx Office Print & Ship Center or requesting FedEx to redirect to a Walgreens location ensures fast and safe delivery. Missed delivery attempts could result in compromising the quality of the wine. Please click here to find a FedEx location near you or the gift recipient. You may also call Uncorked Customer Care at 1-888-386-4459 for further assistance.

What if I missed the delivery attempts and my wine gets returned to you?

In the unfortunate circumstance that your order is returned to our warehouse, please contact Customer Care at 1-888-386-4459 for further assistance. Reshipment fees are the responsibility of the consumer.

Therefore we highly recommend you ship to an address where an adult 21 or older is available to sign for your delivery. Or alternatively, we suggest you ship to a FedEx Office Print & Ship Center or requesting FedEx to redirect to a Walgreens location near you to ensure fast and safe delivery. Missed delivery attempts could also result in compromising the quality of the wine. Find a FedEx location near you or the gift recipient.

Why can’t I receive certain wines?

Laws and regulations vary by state regarding alcohol shipping. We comply with the regulations of each state.

Why do you need a copy of my ID and Date of Birth?

Currently, regulatory compliance with state and federal law requires us to keep a validated date of birth on file for you. In some states noted below we may also need a copy of your driver's license, passport, or military identification number as proof of your legal age.

States that require ID's and Date of Birth on file: Kansas, Michigan, Missouri.

Why am I having trouble adding additional Gift Sets to my Cart?

Please try refreshing the Gift Collections page in your browser. If you continue to have issues, please contact Customer Care.

Gift messages are included in the wine box, printed on card stock, and enclosed in an envelope.

Does the packing slip include pricing information?
