Online Store Policies
You may purchase items on this Site through our electronic shopping cart process. In addition to the Terms, the following policies shall apply to all online orders and sales.
You may join our wine club via this Site. Membership in the wine club is subject to our Wine Club Policy. The wine club may be discontinued or have it's terms changed at any time, and your participation in the wine club may be terminated if you fail to comply with any of the Terms.
Validating Your Order
After you place an order using our shopping cart, we will check the information you give us for validity by verifying your method of payment (e.g. billing address if using a credit card) and/or shipping address. We reserve the right to reject any order you place with us, and/or to limit quantities on any order, without giving any reason. If we reject your order, we will attempt to notify you using the telephone number, e-mail, and/or billing address you have given us with the order. Your credit or debit card will normally not be charged if we reject an order, but we will process a refund if the charge has been made against your card.
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 at any time after receipt of your order to accept or decline your order for any reason.
In some instances state law regulates product availability and/or wine purchase limitations. Working within state and local laws may prevent our ability to fulfill order requests. We may, at our discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household, or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by the same Site account, the same credit card, and orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event we make a change or cancel an order, we will attempt to notify you by contacting you via telephone or e-mail and/or billing address provided at the time the order was made.
Inventory and Substitutions
Though we continually monitor our inventory to ensure product availability, there are times when products may be out of stock. We will call or e-mail you to determine if you would like to wait for the product to be in stock, substitute other items, or cancel part or all of the order. In cases where a substitution is necessary, we will contact you before shipping and provide the option to select other items. If you decide not to make a substitution, we will ship available items minus the out of stock item(s) or cancel the order if you prefer to do so. Your credit card will not be charged until we ship your order, and you will not be charged for out-of-stock items.
Legal Age Requirement
Wine may be sold and delivered only to a person who is at least 21 years old. By placing an order on the Site, you represent to us that you are at least 21 years old and the person to whom any wine (or other alcoholic beverage) will be delivered is also 21 years old. All states allowing wine shipments to consumers require an adult signature at the time of delivery. Proof of age must be produced upon a delivery carrier’s request. We cannot ship to P.O. boxes. We comply with all federal, state, and local laws regarding sale of alcohol to minors.
Third Party Processing Orders
We accept payment through the following credit cards: Visa®, Mastercard®, American Express® and Discover®.
All orders placed on this Site are subject to product availability and will be shipped according to our Shipping Policy. By law, we are prohibited from shipping to certain states. We cannot ship outside the United States. We ship orders via third party carriers, such as United Parcel Service, and Federal Express.
Due to legal restrictions on shipments of wine and other alcoholic beverages, we are currently only shipping wine to states that are reciprocal with California. Those states are listed on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
All alcoholic beverage orders must be placed and received by a person 21 years of age or older. All of the referenced states' laws require an adult signature at the time of delivery. Failure to produce age verification upon request forfeits the right to receive the shipment until identification is produced. In such circumstances, the order will be shipped back to us at your expense.
You are responsible for all shipping charges unless we agree otherwise. Shipping charges will be calculated during the online ordering process. Shipping and handling charges are nonrefundable unless we sent the wrong item.
In our experience, you are likely to receive a shipment sooner if an adult will be available to sign for shipments at the Ship To address during business hours. For that reason we recommend using a business address. We cannot ship to P.O. boxes.
Errors on Our Site
Prices and availability of products and services are subject to change without notice. Errors will be corrected where discovered, and we reserve the right to revoke any stated offer and to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions including after an order has been submitted and whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we will 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.
