Shipping

J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines uses the ‘best method’ to deliver your wine in the most economical and efficient manner, when available. We ship using UPS Ground (UPS) for all orders unless otherwise specified. If you need us to use a different carrier, please email or call us. Shipments may be delayed by the carrier to avoid temperature extremes. For date-sensitive orders, please call us directly. Orders placed by 10:00am Pacific Time, Monday through Friday, will usually be shipped within 2 business days. The package tracking number will be sent to the person placing the order via email once the order has shipped (timing will vary depending on carrier).

Here are some other details:

  • Acts of Nature: No refunds will be offered for damages or delays caused by acts of nature or inclement weather.

​California Transparency in Supply Chains Act

J. Lohr’s mission statement states, in part, “We are committed to honesty, excellence and service, with a respect for our employees, suppliers, customers, and the long-term health of our company and the environment.” Our opposition to any illegal or unethical treatment of all people clearly is part of that statement.

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, enacted on January 1, 2012, requires that large manufacturers and retailers provide consumers with information regarding efforts, if any, to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from our supply chain. Regarding the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, we currently do not engage in verification of product supply chains to specifically evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery, nor conduct audits of suppliers to evaluate supplier compliance with company standards against trafficking and slavery in supply chains. We currently do not require direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into the product comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business. We currently do not maintain internal accountability standards and procedures for employees or contractors failing to meet company standards regarding slavery and trafficking, nor do we provide company employees and management, who have direct responsibility for supply chain management, training on human trafficking and slavery, particularly with respect to mitigating risks within the supply chains of products.

Since our first harvest in 1974, we at J. Lohr have built our company on long-term relationships with reputable vendors and distributors as well as our employees. Many of these relationships have been nurtured over several decades and are very important to us. Our company policies follow federal, state and local laws for our employees, and we expect the same from our vendors, most of whom are located in the United States. While we have not taken formal steps regarding the eradication of slavery and human trafficking, we do informally monitor vendors in our supply chain. Regardless of relationship or reputation, we would not hesitate to hold our vendors accountable should we discover that any of them are not in compliance with laws regarding slavery and human trafficking.
