Anyone get QVC wine delivered?

Hi--wondering if anyone ever had wine delivered from QVC? Didn't see a "wine & food" category so I figured I ask here. I'm concerned how the box is delivered & if there is a description on the box as to what is inside? These day with all the "porch pirates" I'm afraid if someone sees that it indicates wine is in the box it may be gone before I get my package. Thanks for any help you can give.

I thought that you had to be home to accept a wine delivery. They need to be sure that the recipient is of age.

Re: Anyone get QVC wine delivered?

I have wine delivered quite frequently.  I only get a full case -- 12 bottles -- not the 6-bottle set.  So the box is very, very heavy.  A porch pirate would not be able to get away very quickly.

 

In fact, UPS always has to drop it off using a hand truck on wheels because it's so heavy.  

 

Sorry, I cannot answer your question about what's on the box.  But I don't think there are any identifying photos or lettering.

I just checked the box that our wine came in. Vintage Wine Estates came in a big brown box. Nothing that says it's wine.

I have no idea if other Wines come the same way. Best to ask customer service

I've ordered wine from QVC several times, the most recent being the 12 bottle Vintage Wine Estates which just came on Saturday.  They came in a plain brown carton (heavy!).  One must be home to sign and accept delivery.

@donniesmom   Wines must be signed for.  Delivery person by law cannot just drop off.

 

And the wine I've ordered from QVC and other providers is not labelled that it contains spirited beverages.

 

Be forewarned--box will be heavy!

I live in a city apartment and the wine case was delivered to, and left in, the building lobby.  I was not asked to sign anything.  Can't remember if it was FedEx or UPS.  I think the carton was plain. Fortunately I got to it before anyone else!

Re: Anyone get QVC wine delivered?

Thank you all for the info. I did order from Vintage Wine Estates. I will have to ask my neighbor to be "on the lookout" as I won't be home until later tomorrow. Wish there was a way to know what time they were delivering but these days who knows? I know about tracking it but sometimes that doesn't work very well. I'm not worrying about the weight, I know it will be heavy. I'm sure I won't have a problem. This is my first time ordering wine. Thank you all again for your help. Hope this wine is good!

Re: Anyone get QVC wine delivered?

Yes, I've had wine delivered  twice. The bottles were packed inbetween 2 layers of a cardboard material like they used to use for eggs.  All bottles have been intact . The outside of the box does states in a smaller  size print that it contains Alchol and that a signature is required . My Fed Ex delivery person left it on my doorstoop  both times without me signing, however I was home both times.  He  didn't bother ringing the door bell.
