As a vendor, do I need a return policy?

We will replace or refund you for any bottle of wine that is damaged, flawed, or that the customer finds unsatisfactory. We ask the customer return the unfinished portion of the original bottle for replacement. By law, we cannot accept returns of alcoholic beverages unless the product is corked, original-capped or flawed. We are also unable to accept return of product that was damaged due to adverse weather conditions during shipment, or product that is ordered in error. Please send an email to to arrange for the return of corked, original-capped or flawed product.

Once the product is received we will refund your money for the cost of the product less shipping and handling.
