WINE-SPECIFIC CONDITIONS

LEGAL REQUIREMENTS
You must be 21 years of age or older, to order or receive alcoholic beverages from Winery.  Receipt of shipments containing alcoholic beverages requires the signature of a sober adult (a person 21 years of age or older who is not intoxicated). Wines purchased from Winery are not for resale, and are for personal consumption only.

CREDIT CARD CHARGES
Orders are by credit card only. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

MINIMUM PURCHASE
No minimum purchase is required.

STATES AUTHORIZED FOR DIRECT SHIPMENT
Due to the ever-changing nature of wine shipping laws, we may be able to ship wines, directly or indirectly, to your state. If Winery is unable to ship directly to your state, we can arrange for the sale and shipment of our products through a third party. Please note, when dealing through a third party, wine prices, discounts, and shipping costs may differ from those quoted by Winery.

SHIPPING COSTS
Federal Express Ground is Winery carrier of choice (common carrier).  Ground shipping is provided by Federal Express Ground at current market rates. Federal Express Air, next day, second day, and express saver services are also available. *Note – If the customer selects Fed Ex Air as his or her carrier, the customer pays all shipping charges, regardless of his or her wine club membership or purchase amount.

WINE IS A DELICATE COMMODITY
Wine is a perishable commodity. Wine does not like extremes of temperature: hot humid summer and cold winter weather may adversely affect the condition of your wine during shipment.  Winery is 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.

MISCELLANEOUS
This Agreement must be construed, and its performance enforced, under the laws of California without reference to choice of law principles. Any dispute relating to this Agreement or the Site may be litigated only in a court having jurisdiction and venue in Santa Rosa, California.

You understand that we may comply with law enforcement requests or subpoenas regarding your use of the Site.

No waiver by either party of any breach or default under this Agreement may be deemed to be a waiver of any prior or subsequent breach or default.

If any provision of this Agreement is declared invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement remain in effect and the invalid or unenforceable provision is deemed replaced by a valid, enforceable provision that effectuates the intent of the original provision.
