You can preempt this issue by looking at what you have outstanding and contacting the winery or shop with instructions not to ship until you confirm the date & address.

In addition to wine/liquor shops deemed essential in Illinois...so are cannabis dispensaries.
In addition, some are packaging cocktails to go. Not sure how that works. A favorite restaurant of ours nearby is doing that. I may try it for the novelty.
