Wine is a Delicate Commodity
Wine is a perishable commodity and can be damaged or affected by conditions such as extremes of temperature (e.g. heat and humidity in summer and cold winter weather may adversely affect the condition of your wine during shipment). We are 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 common carrier for delivery, responsibility for the wine becomes the responsibility of the purchaser.
Customers and Club members are responsible for maintaining current address and credit card information by either updating in the member/customer protal or notifying us of any changes to shipping information at least two weeks prior to the published ship date. Packages needing to be redirected at the time of shipping will incur a $20 per package fee. Returned or undeliverable shipments will result in additional shipping charges. All shipments must be received within three delivery attempts. Wine cannot be shipped to PO Boxes. A restocking fee of 15% will apply to cancelled orders.
We want to ensure that your experience is as exceptional as the wine. If there has been any damage during shipping, please contact us within thirty days of receipt of the wine. After thirty business days after delivery, we are not responsible for damaged bottles.
Our refund policy is on a case-by-case basis. All sales are final, product can be returned only if the wine is corked and the bottle is returned for our analysis. We can replace the bottle or refund the customer at our discretion.
