Fowler Wine LLC Shipping Policy

It is safer for maintaining the quality of the wine, and less expensive for you and the winery. Plus it would be nice to meet you in person (subject to all applicable COVID19 restrictions).
We are happy to ship to Wisconsin, Minnesota, Florida and the District of Columbia, with other states to follow shortly. All products marked "Winery Pick up or Delivery Only" means they cannot be shipped.
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 or delivery only" that mistakenly get through the system for shipping will also be refunded.

NOTE: For 375 ml Adventure by Fowler WIne™ Pouches, 12 is the ACTUAL minimum order (equivalent of 6 standard 750 ml wine bottles). This is because our packaging will not ship securely any lesser amount. This one will cause us to contact you if the minimum is not met, and your order may be refunded.
