Shipping Information

Shipping Times:

Orders typically ship within one to two business days of receipt.  Delivery is estimated three to five business days for East Coast and seven to ten business days for West Coast, Hawaii, and Alaska. The United Parcel Service “UPS” is the primary package delivery service for Thousand Islands Winery.  UPS will send you a tracking number once the order is in transit to the email address that was provided in the order. This tracking number will allow you to check on the delivery status of your order through the website.

Weather Advisory:

Inclement weather forecasts for weekend shipments may cause a delay in the ship date and arrival date. Extreme cold temperatures can jeopardize the integrity of the wine. At times, packages could remain on the delivery trucks over the weekend. If temperatures are expected to drop below 32˚ F over the weekend, Friday shipments may be postponed until Monday. Should a delay in shipping occur, you will be notified by the Winery.
