Ohio residents please note the following: On July 19, 2005, a US District Judge declared Ohio's previous law prohibiting interstate wine shipments to be unconstitutional. At that time, it became legal for a winery to ship unlimited amounts of wine to Ohio consumers via common carrier. One provision of this decision is that local residents must file an Ohio Excise and Use Tax Filing along with the required payment of tax for every shipment. As the form states; all taxes due to the state of Ohio are required to be paid within 30 days of the receipt of your shipment.

Hot & Cold Weather Advisory

During hot weather (90 degrees and above) and cold weather (32 degrees and below), there is a high chance the wine will be damaged in transit. In the instance you would like wine to be shipped to an area affected by these conditions, we highly recommend selecting the Next Day Air shipping option. Ponte Winery is not liable for any packages damaged due to hot or cold weather.
