How to have a Donelan Wine-soaked summer!

The signs of summer are in full effect here in Sonoma County. Our vineyards have nearly finished flowering, the hills have returned to their famous golden hue, and crews are working hard to keep up with the vigorous vine canopies. With warmer weather, it does become more difficult to ship your wines but we want to help you keep your cellars stocked for all of your summer festivities. To that end, we will provide upgraded shipping to keep you happy and equipped with Donelan Wines this summer.

LZW - June


This offer includes the following shipping upgrades: 
With the purchase of a minimum of 6 bottles (and up to 11 bottles), by selecting ground shipping, we will automatically upgrade you to priority overnight, which means orders are delivered by 10 AM the day after shipping.*
*Exclusions may apply to international, PA and UT orders.
With the purchase of 12 bottles or more, upgraded shipping will be included with purchase to ensure that your wine arrives in perfect condition, safe from the summer heat.**
