Delivery of Alcohol Packages
Delivery can only be made to an address where an individual at least 21 years old can sign for the shipment during regular business hours. Products can be shipped to a place of business or residence. We cannot ship to a P.O. Box or APO Boxes.
Purchaser and recipient must be over the age of 21 to purchase alcohol.
For all alcohol orders, an adult 21 years or older must be available to sign for the order.
Warning: Certain states expressly prohibit the direct importation of alcohol and violation can be punishable as a misdemeanor or felony.
EWS offers shipping within the state of Illinois for select items. Our web site will not allow orders placed for shipment outside of Illinois.
By placing an order you verify that you and order recipients are at least 21 years of age. At the time of delivery the order recipient must sign an age verification receipt stating that they are at least 21 years of age and must present a valid drivers license, military ID, passport or State ID for identification.
You will be notified by email that we received your order. If the items you ordered are out of stock, we will contact you.

Credit Card Charge
We usually ship within 24 hours from the receipt of your order. If we cannot fulfill your order we will contact you. We try not to ship product over a weekend, so if your order is received and cannot be delivered by Friday, it will be shipped on Monday. Shipments may also be delayed due to weather conditions. Weekend delivery requests may have additional charges. Rules and regulations of common carriers may prevent us from accepting orders for the shipment of alcohol products. Please direct all shipping questions to email@example.com or call our toll free number (847)749-0025.
All shipments of alcoholic beverages require an adult signature for delivery.
Our shipping containers are sized for 1 bottle, 2 bottles, 3 bottles, 6 bottles and 12 bottles. Our system will estimate your shipping charges, if you click on ship or pickup. Actual shipping charges may vary when we consolidate your order. Some items require special packaging. We will email or call you with any shipping charge adjustments for your approval.
You can place an order online for pickup at any Esplanade Wine & Spirits. Please allow at least 24 hours for your order to be processed. You will be contacted by the store when your order is ready for pickup. Click on retail stores for our locations.
Our system does not calculate international shipping charges. We will contact you with the shipping charges for your approval. Every country has different taxes, customs and tariffs that you may have to pay. We are not responsible for additional charges that may be added to your order. We advise you to check with the destination country’s local shipping official regarding taxes or custom charges that must be paid before your order is released.
The City of Chicago and Cook County tax (CCT) on alcohol is based on product type and alcohol by volume (ABV). As an example, the CCT on a 750ML of wine 14% ABV is $.11. Applicable sales and CCT taxes are combined on your invoice.
Some wine and spirit items cannot be replaced if an accident should happen. Insurance is available to most destinations through UPS and FedEx. Generally, it is a charge of $.80 per $100 after the first $100. Please indicate if you would like your order insured. We will secure the coverage on your behalf. If a package arrives damaged, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
You pay for wines on a Futures order, plus any local alcohol taxes, at the time of order confirmation. You are responsible, at the time of pick-up, for any charges billed to Esplanade Wine & Spirits which are above the prepaid price of the wine and may include tariffs, duties, sales taxes and/or shipping and insurance costs.
The minimum order for Wine Futures is 6 bottles per item. You will be notified by e-mail that we received your order request. By the next regular business day, you will receive an e-mail confirming available quantities on your order request.
We reserve the right to limit quantities of wines ordered on a Futures request.
When your wine arrives, we will contact you to make arrangements for pick-up or shipping. In the event we are unable to contact you within 90 days of receiving your wine, we reserve the right to dispose of the wine and refund the original price you paid, less a 20% service fee.
Due to the rarity of these wines, we request shipped orders be insured. Shipments include insurance up to $100. Current insurance rates, after the first $100, are 80 cents per $100 of value. Required tariffs, duties, sales taxes and shipping and insurance charges are assessed at the applicable rate when the wine is shipped to you. Wines are shipped in damage resistant containers made for shipping wine bottles. If you would like to have the original wooden crates, they can be shipped separately via UPS ground for an additional shipping charge.
Futures order cancellation policy
There is no fee if a paid order is cancelled within 30 days. For a wine Futures order cancelled more than 30 days after payment has been made, a 20% service fee will be deducted from your refund.
