In-store pickup is available for all purchases. Pickups are available Monday – Saturday from 10 AM – 6 PM. All orders for in-stock wines may be scheduled for local pick-up from our Ybor / South Tampa location or our Carrollwood / North Tampa location. You can schedule your pick-up appointment by sending an email to [email protected] or using our contact form. Same day and “drop-in” pick-up is not available. Visit our Contact Us page for current Customer Pick-Up hours and location. When your order has been packed and moved to our Pick-Up Office, you will be notified by email. If you have not received this email by your scheduled pick-up date, please contact us. If someone else will be picking up your order, you must inform us in advance who will be coming to pick-up your wines. You, or your designated alternate, must be 21+ years old and provide a valid government-issued ID with date of birth.

A restocking fee of $2 per bottle ($10 minimum) will apply. Storage fees may also apply. In no event will orders be held in a Pick up Area for more than 30 days. Chateau Cellars reserves the right to limit the days of the year that this service is offered. The option at checkout to Add to Storage is for current storage clients only and will only be available if the client has extra storage. Otherwise the customer must pick up wine or pay for shipping. The option at checkout to Hold wine is for potential new storage clients. A Chateau Cellars employee will be in contact to discuss storage costs.
