Out-of-State Shipping Policies and Restrictions**
You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages from Charlestown Wine & Spirits. Any shipments outside of Rhode Island containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an "Adult Signature Required" sticker, and the common carrier, FedEx, which ships our merchandise, is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that you must be present at the time of delivery. FedEx will not leave packages without your signature and proof of age.
We will not refund any shipping charges if your package comes back to Charlestown Wine & Spirits because an adult was not present to sign for the package. Shipping to a business address is always encouraged, where allowed by law.
FedEx Ground delivery service is used for all orders being shipped outside of Rhode Island. (If you prefer to use a FedEx express service, place your order by phone during normal business hours.). Orders within RI are delivered by Charlestown Wine & Spirits within normal business hours.
Because of wines’ sensitivity to temperature variances, we may hold your wine in periods of extreme heat/cold. Please understand that during regular business hours, your orders are immediately packaged and then scheduled for shipment, but may be delayed until ideal conditions for shipment arise. In these cases, we would notify you immediately of any delay in shipping. You will receive an email containing tracking information once your order is boxed and ready for shipment. Please note, these tracking numbers will not be active until they are scanned by the driver.
To comply with Federal and State laws, a signature of someone 21 years of age or older is required for receipt of shipment, and we observe the following shipping restrictions:
