‘Beat the Heat’ to Save on Spring & Summer Shipping

'Beat the Heat' to Save on Spring and Summer Shipping

As the longer days of spring and summer approach, we begin to dream of outdoor gatherings with family, firing up the grill, and sipping our favorite wines on the patio.

Of course, with the change of seasons comes the heat. We share a reminder to order your wines now to avoid summer ‘heat holds’ and overnight shipping costs. The difference between Ground vs. Overnight shipping can mean several hundred dollars.

You can save even more by joining our Lloyd Cellars Membership.

As a Club Member, you’ll enjoy a 10% discount on your favorite wines for a commitment of 2 cases (24, 750ml bottles) purchased per year.

And you choose your wines!

Cheers to Spring & Summer Sipping!
