Shipping & Returns
1. By placing an order for wine, you (“Buyer”) warrants that he/she is at least 21 years of age, and that he/she will be responsible for the shipment being received by a person at least 21 years of age.
2. After three attempts to deliver your package, it will be returned to the Company. If the product is returned to the Company after three attempts to deliver to you, the Company may cancel your order and issue you a credit for the purchase price less the original shipping costs and any additional return shipping costs assessed to the Company. Shipping compliance rules also mandate that shipments containing alcohol requires a signature from someone 21 years or older. Accordingly, delivery of wine will have a signature requirement and the signor will need to be able to provide identification proving that he/she is at least 21 years of age. Thus, please track your shipment and plan accordingly.
3. Orders for items other than wine (“goods”) will only have the above requirements when ordered at the same time as wine. All goods and wine must be paid for in full prior to delivery. All goods and wine are sold in California and the title is passed to the Buyer at the time of the sale. All shipping costs, including insurance, are to be paid by the Buyer.
4. By placing an order, Buyer authorizes the Company to act on Buyer’s behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver the order of goods or wine to Buyer.
5. The Company can ship product to many, but not all, states, and the list of such states may change. If we are unable to ship to any particular state, the shipment will not be processed and you will be notified during the check-out phase of this website or prior to any shipment, and if you have been charged, the Company will cancel your order and issue you a credit for the purchase price. In addition, certain states have volume limitations on the amount that may be shipped or sold to any individual. If we are unable to sell or ship due to a volume limitation being exceeded, then the shipment will not be processed and you will be notified, at which time, if you have been charged, the Company will cancel your order and issue you a credit for the purchase price.
6. Buyer is responsible for all applicable excise, use and sales taxes due their state
related to the purchase of any taxable goods or wine.
7. If there are any problems with your shipment let us know immediately. Please contact our customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number, and we will be more than happy to try to resolve the issue. The Company cannot guarantee the condition of any wine if the wine is not received the first time the shipper attempts delivery.
8. Your receipt of an electronic or other form of order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right to reject or cancel any order you place with us on the Website and/or or to limit quantities in any such order, without giving any reason or for no reason, if we determine it is in our best interests to do so. If we reject your order or reduce the quantities of any items in your order, we will attempt to notify you using the e-mail and/or billing address you gave us when you placed the order. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we shall issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge. Individual bank policies will dictate when this amount is credited to your account.
