Welcome to the Walla Walla Vintners website and related interactive features, products, services, applications or downloads (collectively, the “Website”) that is owned by Opal West Wines, d/b/a Walla Walla Vintners (“Walla Walla Vintners,” “we” and “us”). These Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) apply to our Website regardless of how you access or use it, including through mobile devices.
Additional terms and conditions may apply to the purchase of products, such as shipping and return policies. By using this Website, you agree to such terms and conditions.
If you have any questions or comments, we invite you to contact us at email@example.com.
Legal Age Requirement. You are not permitted to view the Website unless you are 21 years of age or older. If you are younger than 21, please do not visit the Website. Your account may be deleted and your membership to our wine club(s) may be terminated without warning, if we believe that you are under 21 years of age.
Alcohol may only be sold and delivered to a person who is of legal drinking age. By placing an order on the Website, you represent to us that you are of legal drinking age and the person to whom any wine (or other alcoholic beverage) will be delivered is also of legal drinking age. By placing an order, you further agree and consent to our age verification process. We comply with federal, state, and local laws regarding sale of alcohol to minors.
Information, Products, and Specifications. We attempt to ensure that information on this Website is complete, accurate and current. Despite our efforts, the information on this Website may occasionally be inaccurate, incomplete or out of date. We make no representation as to the completeness, accuracy or currency of any information on this Website.
For example, products included on this Website may be unavailable, may have different attributes than those listed, or may actually carry a different price than that stated on this Website. In addition, we may make changes in information about price and availability without notice. While it is our practice to confirm orders by email, the receipt of an email order confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of an order or our confirmation of an offer to sell a product or service. We reserve the right, without prior notice, to limit the order quantity on any product or service or to refuse service to any customer. We also may require verification of information prior to the acceptance or shipment of any order.
Certain weights, measures and similar descriptions are approximate and are provided for convenience purposes only. Packaging may vary from that shown. We make all reasonable efforts to accurately display the attributes of our products, including the applicable colors; however, the actual color you see will depend on your computer system, and we cannot guarantee that your computer will accurately display such colors.
Discounts and sales prices may not be applied to previous orders. We reserve the right to shorten the duration of any special order or sales promotion. All applicable sales and other taxes are in addition to the sale price. All online transaction totals reflect the estimated tax amount; the actual tax amount will be calculated based on your shipping location and many vary from the estimated tax.
Occasionally, the manufacture or distribution of a certain product or service may be delayed for a number of reasons. In such event, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you of the delay and keep you informed of the revised delivery schedule. The inclusion of any products or services on this Website at a particular time does not imply or warrant that these products or services will be available at any time. By placing an order, you represent that the products ordered will be used only in a lawful manner.
Order Eligibility. You may only purchase our products and services for personal, non-commercial use. Walla Walla Vintners may refuse any order that it has cause to believe is for onward sale other than through distribution channels approved by Walla Walla Vintners. Walla Walla Vintners makes no representation or guarantees that products or services available on the Website are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States, and accessing the Website from territories where its contents are illegal or unlawful is prohibited. If you choose to access this Website from locations outside of the United States, you do so at your own risk. It is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal and international laws (including minimum age requirements) with respect to the possession, use and sale of any item purchased from this Website.
Shipping Limitations. You may only purchase products and services that are delivered to or performed at an address located in the United States. We are prohibited from shipping to certain states and we cannot ship to P.O. boxes. UPS Ground is Walla Walla Vintner’s third party carrier of choice. You are responsible for all shipping charges unless we expressly agree otherwise. Shipping charges will be calculated during the on-line ordering process. Shipping and handling charges are nonrefundable unless we sent the wrong item. If you select UPS Next Day Air as your carrier, you agree to pay all shipping charges, regardless of your wine club membership or purchase amount.
Each state that allows us to ship directly to consumers requires the signature, at the time of delivery, of a person of legal drinking age. 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.
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. Walla Walla Vintners is not responsible for and will not replace wine that is damaged by extreme weather conditions during shipment. Risk of loss and title for items purchased from this Website pass to you upon delivery of the items to the carrier and you are responsible for filing any claims with carriers for damaged or lost shipments. Walla Walla Vintners does not guarantee any particular delivery date and is not responsible for any delays.
Return and Exchange Policy. You may return or exchange a product purchased from this Website in the event that the product or service is defective or for any reason within 30 days. Certain jurisdictions may provide additional statutory rights. Nothing herein is meant to limit your return or cancellation rights under applicable local law.
In the event that the return or exchange is due to Walla Walla Vintners sending you an incorrect order or faulty product, Walla Walla Vintners will be responsible for the shipping costs associated with such return. In all other cases, you will be responsible for the return. Walla Walla Vintners will only accept returned or exchanged products or services that comply with the process detailed in our Returns & Cancellations policy.
Charges. For all charges for any products or services sold on the Website, Walla Walla Vintners will bill your credit card or alternative payment method offered by Walla Walla Vintners or our authorized third party vendor. You agree to provide valid and updated payment information. In the event legal action is necessary to collect on balances due, you agree to reimburse Walla Walla Vintners for all expenses incurred to recover sums due, including attorneys’ fees and other legal expenses. You are responsible for purchase of, and payment of charges for, all Internet access services needed for use of this Website and any and all fees charged to you by your financial institution related to the charges.
If you register for a Wine Club membership, you agree that Walla Walla Vintners will automatically bill you and you will be responsible for all fees associated with this membership, each time a shipment is made pursuant to that membership. You may cancel your membership, and the associated charges going forward, at any time prior to a Wine Club shipment being made. However, you may not retroactively cancel your membership after a shipment has been sent, and you remain responsible for the fees associated with that shipment.
Payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable. Walla Walla Vintners may suspend or terminate your account, in addition to other rights and remedies, if fees are past due. You shall provide Walla Walla Vintners with written notice of any disputed charges within ten (10) business days of the date of the charge. Notice of the dispute must provide in reasonable detail a statement of the basis for disputing the charge.
Promotional Codes. On occasion, Walla Walla Vintners may issue promotion codes that may be redeemed at the time of check out. These codes are non-transferable and may only be used by the intended recipient; these codes have no cash value and are not redeemable for cash. We reserve the right to cancel any promotion code and reduction redemption when the total value of the promotional code exceeds the price of the item. Multiple promotional codes may not be combined. We are not responsible for any financial loss arising out of our refusal, cancelation or withdrawal of a promotion or any failure or inability of a customer to use a promotional code for any reason.
