Where can I buy Division wine in person?
We’re represented by amazing distributors in the United States and importers abroad. Find your region’s distributer or importer on our Trade page.
Do you have a tasting room?
We do not have a tasting room with public hours while our winery building is under construction. We are doing private tastings depending on our team’s availability. Fill out our contact form if you’re interested. Please note that we might not be able to accommodate the request, but we’ll do our best!!
Are Division Winemaking Company and Division Wines the same thing?
We are lucky enough to call the good folks at Division Wines, a retail bottle shop in SE Portland, our friends and in fact, they bought our first case of wine back in 2011. We are however two separate and unrelated companies who have made a name for ourselves in the eclectic and wonderful Division/Clinton Neighborhood in Portland.
Is your wine “natural”?
The word “natural wine” means a lot of different things to many different people and realistically, and the jury is still out on the accepted singular definition of “natural wine.” We prefer to use the term “minimal manipulation” for our wines, which often overlaps with the common traits of natural wines, i.e. native/spontaneous fermentation and no use of chemical adjuncts or additives and limited.
We use climate control to condition and stabilize our wines, and we sometimes filter the wines, especially if there is residual sugars in the wine. We also use very modest amounts of sulfur to protect our wines from the transit and shelf stability realities us and our customers expect. Finally, we will also ensure a wine’s integrity over our hope of non interference if it is necessary and believe firmly that the most important consideration is making a good wine over all else.
Is your wine “organic”?
Nearly all of our vineyards are farmed organic or Biodynamic. Some are certified and some are not. We do have some exceptions to this and we make note of these in our wine technical sheets.
Do you use sulfur?
We do use sulfur for most of our wines, but we also have some wines with no added sulfites. We believe in very judicious use of sulfur, and only what is necessary for base stabilization of the finished wines. Nearly all sulfur additions are made post malolactic fermentation or just before bottling.
When will my order ship out?
We process and fulfill orders within two business days of receiving the order. We avoid shipping on Fridays so your wine isn’t sitting in a non-temperature controlled warehouse. Orders received after 1 pm Pacific on Fridays will ship by the following Monday using FedEx Ground.
Can I pick up my order?
Yes, you can! Currently all local pickups are by appointment only. Pickups are available at our temporary office in SE Portland at 201 SE 3rd Ave until we complete the new winery. Pickup appointments will be scheduled with our team Monday thru Friday between the hours of 1-5:30pm (as available). We appreciate your flexibility as we make this big move! Please email us at [email protected] to arrange for pick up.
What do I do if my discount code isn’t working?
Why is shipping so expensive?
We want you to receive your wines in the best condition possible.
We offer complimentary ground shipping on orders of 4+ bottles with code SHIPSHIPSHIP. We offer some of the most competitive shipping rates in the country, but shipping wine can still be expensive for a multitude of reasons.
- There are complex laws in shipping wine direct to consumer that vary across states
- Most shipping companies charge by weight and boxes filled with wine can be quite heavy
- Adult signatures are required by law upon delivery of wine and other alcohol, and shipping companies charge extra for the service
- Wine is a living product and is sensitive to sunlight and extreme temperatures. We do our best to time our shipments depending on weather situations across the country.
Why can’t you ship to my state?
We can only ship to the states where we are licensed. Some states don’t allow shipping directly to a consumer instead of a business. Please email us at [email protected] with any questions regarding shipping to your state.
Do you offer local delivery?
We offer free local delivery on Fridays to anyone ordering 4 or more bottles within a 10 mile radius of the winery. Local delivery on orders of fewer than 4 bottles is $15. Cut-off is midnight Pacific on Thursdays to be added to the route on Friday.
How can I receive my order faster?
We offer FedEx 2 Day Air to all the states we are able to ship in the lower 48. Rates are determined by state. Reach out if you have a unique situation, and we’ll do our best to accommodate requests.
