Where does Cambria ship to?
How does my wine ship?
All shipments are sent by UPS or FedEx ground. Two-day or overnight shipping is available at an additional cost when you need your wine to arrive sooner. We also offer temperature-controlled shipping. This protects your wine from hot or cold temperatures that can damage the quality of the wine.
How do I check the shipping status of my order?
Once your order has been packed and is ready to leave our winery, you’ll receive an email on the day your wine ships with tracking info. Just click on the tracking information, and you can view the status and expected delivery date.
When will I receive my wine?
Orders ship daily Monday through Friday. Orders placed on our website ship from our winery in California so delivery times vary anywhere from 2–7 business days depending on your “Ship to State.” We don’t ship on the weekend and cannot schedule deliveries for Saturday or Sunday. Local pick-up is available. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (805) 938-7318 to arrange.
Can I sign for my order in advance of delivery?
Since wine is an alcoholic beverage, it requires the signature of someone 21+ old upon delivery. Unfortunately, we can’t ship wine to P.O. boxes for this reason. If you will not be home during the day, we recommend shipping to a business address or 3rd party shipper, e.g. FedEx Office, FedEx Onsite or other location with someone available to sign for the wine.
Why is my order on hold?
Extreme hot or cold temperatures, either in your delivery area or along the transit route, may damage the quality of the wine. In these instances, we may delay your shipment until the temperature is in an acceptable range. We also offer temperature-controlled ground shipping, and these shipments leave our warehouse every Friday. Or, you may choose two-day or overnight shipping for an additional fee. Local pick-up is available. Please contact us at email@example.com or call us at (805) 938-7318 to arrange.
