Who May Access This Website And Purchase Products
Weekly Tasting markets alcoholic beverages on behalf of licensed wine retailers and wineries (our “Retailers”) only to persons who are over the age of 21 for personal consumption only. By accepting these Terms of Service, you affirm that (a) you are over the age of 21, (b) that any wine you purchase through Weekly Tasting will be shipped to and signed for by a person over the age of 21, and (c) all purchases are for personal consumption and not for resale.
1. Shipping Rates
Free ground shipping throughout the United States is provided if the minimum number of bottles is purchased for each offer. If fewer than the minimum required for free shipping is purchased normal shipping rates will apply and you will see the additional cost for shipping before checking out. Expedited shipping options are also available, at rates which will be determined at checkout.
2. Where Wines Ship
We are constantly working to strengthen our network of Retailers to enable shipping to as many states as possible. If you have specific questions about shipping to any particular location, please contact our Customer Service Department.
3. Title & Ownership
Weekly Tasting is neither a retailer nor distributor of wines. All orders placed through Weekly Tasting will be fulfilled by one of our Retailers who is licensed to sell wines in or to the purchaser’s shipping location. In connection with the sale and shipping of wine, Weekly Tasting and its Retailers are providing a service to, and acting on behalf of the purchaser. By utilizing this service, the purchaser is representing that he/she is acting in a fashion compliant with his/her local and state laws regarding the purchase, transportation, and delivery of wine. By placing an order with Weekly Tasting, purchaser authorizes the Retailer to act on buyer’s behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver buyer’s order. The Retailer automatically adds insurance to each order placed. This covers you from any package lost or damaged in transit. The purchaser represents that he/she has obtained all required permissions, paid all required fees, is working through properly licensed intermediaries, is legally entitled to take possession of wine, is legally entitled to take quantities ordered, and authorizes that he/she is 21 years of age. Weekly Tasting makes no representation to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import alcoholic beverages into any state or territory.
4. Hold Policy
Weekly Tasting Retailers will hold any order upon request up to 12 months from the time of purchase in a temperature controlled warehouse. This option can be found when checking out. Retailers do not allow future shipping requests on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays as they do not ship from the warehouse on these days in order to minimize transit time. If you ever need to change the original date chosen, please contact us immediately; notice is needed 48 hours in advance of the date you would like to ship. Orders held over one year from date-of-purchase will be subject to a holding fee ($5/month/package). Any orders that are held over 6 months and cancelled may be subject to a restocking fee.
5. Estimated Delivery Time
Orders placed will typically ship from a climate-controlled facility within the next 2-3 business days. Ground Service shipping is only available Mondays through Thursdays. 2-Day Air shipping is only available Mondays through Wednesdays.
6. Tracking an Order
Once your order has been completed, you will receive an email from Weekly Tasting confirming your order. Once your order has shipped you will receive an additional email which will include a tracking number for your convenience.
Products are packed in our “Shipper Approved” containers to ensure proper delivery. Our Retailers do everything possible to protect your products from temperature related damage (see “Hold Policy” above for additional delivery options).
8. Signature Policy
You must be 21 years of age or older to purchase wine. All packages REQUIRE a signature by someone 21 years of age or older upon delivery. It is highly recommended that you provide us with a business shipping address for the best service. Customer comments on your order such as "Please leave on back porch" or "Leave at front door" unfortunately cannot be honored. Failure to comply with this policy will result in your wine being returned without refund of any shipping charges.
Weekly Tasting is committed to 100% Customer Satisfaction Guaranteed. If there are any problems with your shipment let us know immediately - we stand behind every bottle we you buy. Please contact Customer Service with the name of the wine, your order number, and quantity of bad bottles and our expert team will be more than happy to resolve the issue. Weekly Tasting cannot guarantee the condition of any wine if the wine is not received the first time the shipper attempts delivery. If there is no one home to sign for the package the wine may be held in the shipper's facility that is not temperature controlled.

This Arbitration Provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (the “FAA”) and evidences a transaction involving commerce. If any portion of this Arbitration Provision, or the rules of the Judicial Arbitration Mediation Service or American Arbitration Association, are determined by the Arbitrator or by any court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful, invalid or unenforceable, such portions shall be severed or modified so that this Arbitration Provision may be enforced to the greatest extent permissible under the law.
