Fowler Wine LLC Shipping Policy
Fowler Wine sells wine through our website and Direct Shippers Permit. We offer FREE shipping on orders of 3 bottles or more to Wisconsin and Minnesota. We can deliver to reasonably local Wisconsin addresses. Fowler Wine strongly encourages local customers to select delivery or shipping for WI customers under our direct shipper's permit. HOWEVER, our website system sometimes isnt clear in its language- it may give a selection for "DELIVERY", but if it doesnt please select "pick up" even though that is not what will happen- its merely a website drop down menu limitation. You will be contacted for delivery if you select winery pick up. Currently we cannot sell wine on premises for customers to take away.
Delivery is safer for maintaining the quality of the wine, and less expensive for you and the winery.
We are happy to ship to Wisconsin, Minnesota, Florida and the District of Columbia, with other states to follow shortly.
Non-Compliant Orders will be Refunded
If a customer places an order to a state that Fowler Wine LLC cannot legally ship to, or the order exceeds lawful requirements of the recipient state, and the system does not catch the error, Fowler Wine LLC will manually refund your order and it will not ship.
Products marked "winery pick up" does not mean literal winery pick up- rather you will be contacted for delivery or shipping.
It is illegal for Fowler Wine LLC to transport alcohol across state lines improperly. So please do not even ask.
There is no minimum purchase for winery delivery to WI customers within a reasonable radius of Hudson, WI. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for delivery questions.
However, for certain products to ship, we ask that you abide by minimum purchase if customer desires winery direct shipping, including:
1) Free shipping to WI and MN if the three bottle minimum.
NOTE: The ability to deliver direct to customer is a rule for wineries that have a WI Direct Shipper's Permit, which includes Fowler Wine LLC. Direct delivery to the consumer by Fowler Wine LLC is only available to WI residents and delivered to WI addresses.
For deliveries you will be asked to pick an available time slot and asked to please adhere to that time slot. If a delivery or pick up time has been arranged and you cannot make that time, please contact us by emailing email@example.com or calling the winery. If customer misses two arranged pick up or delivery times, you order may be refunded with a restocking fee of $20 charged to you.

Fowler Wine LLC takes care to store wine at proper temperature and condictions in the winery. Fowler Wine LLC in order to minimize the risk of wine sitting in a warehouse or truck over a weekend, Fowler Wine LLC's preferred shipment dates is Mondays and Tuesdays only, this is for the wine's protection. Therefore, for example, for orders to ship on Mondays, they must be placed before 11 pm Sunday.
