UPS Rates & Options
UPS shipping rates apply based on weight unless otherwise stated. UPS ground is the default. We also offer next day and second day delivery as options. UPS ground orders are shipped Monday-Thursday (in order to prevent product from sitting over the weekend, we do not ship on Fridays).
By law, Universal Fine Wine & Spirits, as well as UPS, is required to obtain a signature from an adult (21+) before releasing a package that contains alcoholic beverages. The purchaser must agree to this condition in order to complete a successful transaction.
UPS will make three (3) attempts to deliver a package(s) (on successive days) before the package is returned to Universal Fine Wine & Spirits. If a package is returned, the cost of the original delivery is the responsibility of the customer and is not eligible for reimbursement or refund. Additionally, if a package is returned, the customer will provide funds for re-sending the packages.
We utilize state of the art packaging for you orders. Because of the high cost of the specially made bottle shippng materials, there is a nominal handling charge added to the shipping to cover the cost of the packaging. To protect you the customer and us the retailer from damage to your package, we require these packing containers.
Ordering in increments of 12blts-shippers are free (ONLY ON WINE)
1-3 Bottles $4.99 additional for shipper box (Wine, Beer & Liquor)
4-6 Bottles $7.99 additional for shipper box (Wine, Beer & Liquor)

***because some bottles are abnormally shaped (in relation to the styrofoam shippers), occasionally we will use alternative packaging materials to pack products***
How long will my delivery take via UPS Ground?
Please note we do not ship on Fridays to prevent your wine from sitting over the weekend.
