How can I make changes to my Best Wine Club (BWC) account?
Members are able to update their account information.
What happens if my Best Wine Club (BWC) shipment is sent back to the winery?
The shipping service we use will make three delivery attempts before returning the wine to us. If the wine is returned to the winery, we can reship the order for a $15 fee. We suggest that you provide an address that will assure you receive the delivery, such as a place of business, with someone over the age of 21 present to sign for your order. An adult signature is required for delivery.
What if I end up with a corked or damaged bottle?
In the unlikely event that a bottle arrives damaged or corked (we inspect the wines incredibly closely before shipment), notify us as soon as possible and we will replace the damaged merchandise.
If I choose to be a “pick-up member,” how will I know that my wines are available to pick up?
All pick-up members will receive an email notifying them of the release. The pick up party is an opportunity for you to sample the wines, pick up your shipment, and enjoy the benefits of being part of the Best Wine Club (BWC). If you are unable to pick up your release after 21 days, we will conveniently ship the wine to you.
Shipping charges and an additional $10 handling fee will be applied to the credit card we have on file.
Can I have someone else pick up my release?
Yes, you can have a friend or family member pick up your release. Just be sure to send us an email or give us a call with the name of the person so we can make a note on your account to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I skip releases?
Yes! Members can skip a maximum of two consecutive releases. Longer durations require cancellation, which may be subjected to the $50 cancellation fee if the member cancels before receiving two releases.
What is the cancellation policy?
We hate to see you go, but if you wish to cancel your membership we ask that you give notice two weeks before the release of the next club release. If we do not receive timely notice, you will be required to accept the current release. We require members receive two releases before cancellation, or they will be charged a $50 cancellation fee.
What address should I use for shipping?
We suggest that you provide an address that will guarantee you receive a delivery, such as a place of business, with someone over the age of 21 present to sign for your order.
