Spring is in full bloom here in wine country and the summer season is right around the corner. With that comes relaxing by the water, grilling with friends, and late nights with your nose in a page turner enjoying a glass of Smith Story. However, with the anticipation of summer, comes temperatures that may be too hot to safely ship wine via ground shipping.
From now through May 14 (our wedding anniversary!) we're offering $14 flat UPS ground shipping on all orders of 6 bottles or more. Please use the promo code: LIVEALOHA at checkout.
