I’ve never had wine delivered – what do I need to know?
You must be 21 years of age, or older, to order or receive alcoholic beverages from The OBC Wine Project. Receipt of shipments containing alcoholic beverages requires the signature of a sober adult (a person 21 years of age or older who is not intoxicated). Wines purchased from The OBC Wine Project are not for resale, and are for personal consumption only. Pro Tip: Consider shipping to a business address as someone 21+ must sign. We recommend signing up for a free account at UPS.com to manage your shipment.

What are shipping costs?
UPS Ground is our carrier of choice. Ground shipping is determined by market rates by weight and size and is currently $24/box. Subscribers get FREE shipping!
What about extreme temps during shipping?
Wine is a perishable commodity. Wine does not like extremes of temperature: hot humid summer and cold winter weather may adversely affect the condition of your wine during shipment. The OBC Wine Project is not responsible for, and will not replace wine that is damaged by extreme weather conditions during shipment. When your wine order is picked up by the carrier for delivery, responsibility for the wine becomes the responsibility of the purchaser.
How should I serve and store The OBC Wine Project wine?
We recommend storing our canned wines room temp (65 degrees) and serving at your preferred temp! If you want to dial in your wine serving temps according to the “experts” – generally serve red wines slightly cooler than room temp: 62–68 degrees F, and white wines slightly warmer than fridge temp: 49-55 degrees F. You can drink it right out of the can of course, or pour it into a glass to enjoy even more aroma, flavor and see the beautiful colors.
Can you age The OBC Project canned wine?
We can our wines at the time they are meant to be consumed, which may be right after production for a rosé or after months of barrel-aging for a cab. While the can will remain drinkable for much longer, we think flavors and aromatics of the wines are best within 18 months of the canning date, which is stamped right on the bottom of the can. Ready to drink & ready to share!
How much wine is in each can?
Our cans are 375ml, which is just slightly larger than the cans we’ve been putting our world-class Odell Brewing beers in for years. It’s also a ½ of a bottle of wine, so pace yourself or plan to share with a friend.
Does the can affect the taste?
Like beer and soda cans, modern wine cans don’t transmit an aluminum taste, and have a protective coating or liner. You might be surprised to learn that cans are actually better for most wines than glass bottles. There’s no possibility of the wine being “corked” which spoils 2-3 % of all wines. There’s also no risk of oxidation or light penetration, which can lead to that musty, cardboard taste.
