How does BarSupplies know that I am of legal age?
You must be 21 years of age to order alcoholic beverages. Additionally, all shipments of alcoholic beverages within the United States require an adult's signature at the time of delivery. $2.75 additional cost of acquiring a signature is included in the cost of S/H. Of course, orders for non-alcoholic items (glassware, wine storage accessories, etc.) are not restricted to certain states and can be shipped throughout the United States.
How do I figure out if my State (U.S) is legal to accept shipments from California?
Non-California residents are responsible for determining whether they may lawfully import alcoholic beverages into their state. We make no representation relative to your right to import wine or spirits into your state. Each state has its own rules about alcoholic beverages. We have listed a few rules below. You may want to check with the appropriate agency in your state or county. If, between the date of order and date of arrival, the laws of your state change so as to make it illegal for you to import your shipment, you can return the order for a full refund. You will, however, be charged for shipping and handing of the product. BarSupplies will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that BarSupplies in its sole judgment believes that such shipment will not subject BarSupplies to the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by BarSupplies violates the law, we suggest that the buyer provide an alternative address in another state or have their wine shipped to a third-party storage facility in a direct shipping-friendly state. As a service to our buyers, we have compiled a listing of these facilities, which are not affiliated with BarSupplies. We do not provide an endorsement of any facility and we recommend that you contact the facility directly to determine if their costs and services meet your needs.

I will take Full Responsibility. Will BarSupplies ship me wine?
Because of the widely variable and punitive laws controlling the shipment of wine in the United States, we have created this section to help you determine the restrictions and limitations that you may face when buying wine online -- depending on who you are and where you are shipping to. Any wine sold to you through BarSupplies is sold in California and title passes to you, the buyer, in California. The buyer is solely responsible for the shipment of wine. We make no representations concerning your legal rights to ship or receive wine into any state outside California or any country outside the United States. In fact there are certain states and countries we cannot ship to. By placing this order, you authorize us to act on your behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver your order to your selected designation.
