Summer Shipping:

Warm temperatures can damage wine!

To protect your wine, we will hold ground shipments if temperatures en route or at your destination exceed 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Need your wine sooner? Get 50% off any expedited shipping method at checkout (UPS and FedEx 2nd Day and Next Day PM).

We are happy to hold your wine at no charge until the weather cools enough to ship via ground, but sometimes this means waiting until September.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee your wine or offer replacements for wine shipped against our weather hold recommendations. Please email us at orders@elkcove.com or call us at 503-985-7760 with any shipping questions or special instructions. We are always happy to help sort out how to get your wine to its destination safely!

What’s the best time to ship wine ground?

The best times of year to ship wine via ground are spring and fall months during mild weather. Winter and summer temperatures can cause delays because we will not ship your wine ground when temperatures at your destination or anywhere en route are likely to damage your wine. We want your wine to arrive in peak condition!
