I ordered something from another site (gasp!) at the end of May. With all of the craziness of the end of the school year, I forgot all about it until last weekend when I decided to check to see if ddeuddeg picked it up for me or if FedEx was just holding it for me and hadn't called. It turns out that this site decided to change shippers to UPS for the summer so that they could offer refrigerated shipping to a central point and then, one day from whatever hub UPS is using. Two problems: My wine shipping goes to FedEx/Kinko's for this site since they use FedEx (never bothered to change info on their website. Still haven't) and FedEx won't accept deliveries from the big brown truck! I suppose I should say three problems: my wine has done a round trip from California to Buffalo twice so far (the website people never bothered to contact me) and it is now on its way to the UPS depot near me! I did mention my concern about this wine being cooked--hopefully, they had instituted this refrigerated shipping on the first trip, but was it refrigerated on the way back to Cali? There has been some hot weather out there lately.
