Curbside Service

If you prefer not to come inside to shop, we are happy to bring your wine out to you while you sit in your car. That way you can stay in the comfort and safety of your own vehicle. Please call us to arrange whatever you would like to buy. You can even call from the parking lot! You can either pay over the phone with a credit card or we can collect payment curbside. Call 607-330-1056 to place your order.

Caveat: We may still need to ID you.

Web Ahead/Call Ahead

WEB AHEAD:
If you prefer to pre-order online before picking up, you can use our website to order. Browse our online products, keeping in mind that only a portion of our inventory is available online. Feel free to call with any questions! Once you've made your selections, just click "PICK UP AT ITHACA STORE" when you check out. We'll prepare your order as rapidly as possible and then text, email or call you when it's ready.

LET US PICK FOR YOU:
We can prepare a custom case of wines and spirits based on your preferences and specifications. If you prefer, we can duplicate a past order or use it as a guideline to find you new, but similar wines.

CALL AHEAD:
We love to talk with our customers, so feel free to reach out to us by phone. You can call 607-330-1056 to arrange special orders, ask questions or buy over the phone.

Wedding Wines/Bridal Registry

First of all, Congratulations! We're thinking you may already own many of the household items you will use once you are married. What better experience is there than to enjoy a home-cooked meal and a bottle of wine at the table with your new partner-for-life! If you'd rather build your relationship over dinner than acquire a bunch more stuff, ask your family and friends for the GIFT OF WINE! We can handle your bridal registry in a number of ways:

1) Gift Certificates in any amount
2) Wine Club Membership -- 3, 6, 12-month or continuous time frames are available
3) Custom Case in specific budget
4) Note special/specific wines you want (based on availability at the time of actual purchase) to suggest to your wedding guests

Feel free to stop in and talk with us about your desires and we will create a gift list tailored to you! Then, when your guests call, stop in or shop online, we'll be ready to fulfill your needs smoothly.
