Shipping & Returns

All orders over $200 + tax qualify for free Regular Shipping (2-3 business days).

What does Regular/Free Shipping include?

Regular and Free Shipping orders will ship via Canada Post's 2-3 Business Day Expedited Service, or via courier for those nearest our Downtown Vancouver location. If you are not home when Canada Post attempts delivery, or if you live in a building or complex with secure entry, they will leave a pickup notice in your mailbox and securely store your order for up to 15 calendar days. The pickup location will be your nearest postal outlet. Packages held for more than 15 calendar days will be automatically returned to Marquis Wine Cellars. Canada Post does not re-attempt deliveries.

Those located within Vancouver-proper may request a courier door-to-door delivery for orders of a case or more. "Vancouver proper" also includes North/West Vancouver, and parts of Richmond/Burnaby. It does not include Surrey, Delta, Langley, Ladner, Surrey, Coquitlam, Port Moody, or New Westminster.

Orders of less than a case may be delivered by courier within Vancouver if the Priority Shipping is paid. Unless explicitly requested and agreed to in advance, we reserve the right to select the method of delivery for every order.

By law we can't ship outside of the province of BC. Packages delivered by Canada Post containing alcohol cannot be left unattended. To comply with liquor control laws, packages must be received and signed by someone at least 19 years of age.

Is the recipient located in Downtown Vancouver?

  • Deliveries to downtown will arrive within a day or two under Regular or Free Shipping. Delivery hours are 10:00am - 5:00pm, Monday to Friday. No weekend or holiday deliveries.

  • If the shipping address is residential, we may need to contact the receiver in order to arrange a delivery time for the courier. Please leave their buzzer number or concierge info in the comments field. If we cannot get ahold of the receiver within a reasonable time period, we will instead ship via Canada Post to recipients in downtown without notification.

  • Please check the delivery address and recipient's holiday schedule carefully. We may charge additional shipping to re-ship if the person has moved, is away on vacation, or otherwise unable to receive the order. Undelivered packages will be held by Canada Post for 15 calendar days before automatically being returned to us. Second or third delivery attempts may incur additional charges.

  • Delivery ETAs are not guaranteed and are subject to driver availability, weather, and traffic conditions.
