Each state has its own laws governing how alcoholic beverages cross its borders and unfortunately, until local shipping laws change, we cannot ship to all states. We do not currently ship to AR, DE, KY, MS, NH, RI, UT. We apologize for any inconvenience.

If you live in one of these states, we have options for you... If you have a close friend or family member in a green-light shipping state, especially if you visit that person often or at least will be visiting sometime soon, we are happy to ship your order to their address. Also, we would be happy to ship your order direct to a FedEx or UPS store location in a legal shipping state for you to pick- up.

We are here to help and are happy to answer any questions you may have in order to get wine to your front door...or a front door near you.

How we ship?

Most orders can be shipped 2-14 days after they are placed. All orders are shipped via UPS 2-day Air and you can request a specific DO NOT DELIVER BEFORE date during the checkout process.

We endeavor to be as 'Green' as possible and ship all our wines in biodegradable packaging.  If you would prefer to have your wines shipped in Styrofoam packaging please email help@familyvineyardsdirect.com and let us know.

All Allocation offers are shipped directly from the cellars and can take as long as 3 months to arrive at your front door. Please note: Federal law requires that someone of at least 21 years of age sign for all wine shipments. If no adult is home at the time of delivery, FedEx or UPS is obliged to return the wine to its local warehouse and will reschedule delivery. We recommend you ship to a business address if possible, delivery usually takes place in the mid-morning and can be signed for by any adult on the premises

Pristine Provenance... what is it & why is it important?

Pristine Provenance

When looking for a bottle of wine, the first focus is usually on grape varietal, region, price, and perhaps vintage or producer if you are looking for something specific. But often overlooked is one of the MOST IMPORTANT details, Pristine Provenance.

“Provenance” is the most important concept in the fine wine market, a catch all term referring to a wine’s genuineness and how well it has been stored. With the growing abundance of fake wines in recent years it is now essential that consumers ask about a wine’s Provenance. Family Vineyards Direct is proud to source all our wines directly from the winery where they were crafted.  Our wineries hold the bottles until they are purchased, avoiding any opportunities for fraud or improper storage.

“Pristine” is an industry definition of a bottle of wine and it indicates the wine is in its original condition and unspoiled. No leakage, no markings or cuts of any kind on labels or capsules and a specific measurement of liquid in the neck of both Burgundy and Bordeaux style bottles. Wines are living, breathing things, developing more character as they age. To ensure the fullest potential of development, they need to evolve in optimum conditions.

Heat - We ship every order via UPS 2-day Air and can hold orders if weather patterns indicate extreme weather.  We further offer guests the option to purchase ice packs to ensure no case experiences an extreme temperature environment.

Light is also a nemesis of wine and prolonged exposure can cause damage to a wine’s color. The green glass common to most wine bottles helps combat light damage but there is no saving a wine left to suffer on a sunny retail store shelf. Family Vineyards Direct sources all wines directly from the winery and you can rest assured that your wine has never befallen such a fate.
