There is no fee to join any Amavi Cellars wine club. You may join now and you will not be charged until the club allocations are processed in the spring and fall. All allotments include member savings.
Please contact us no later than 1 week in advance if you foresee an issue with a ship date (see club email communications at each release for the exact date).
The credit card on your membership account is charged one week before the shipment is sent. The charge will be the retail value of your shipment, minus your member savings, plus any applicable tax and shipping charges, unless you have opted to pick up your allotment.
Charges will vary with each allotment depending on wine selection.
You must be 21 years or older to order and receive shipments. An adult signature is required upon delivery. We strongly recommend delivery of wine shipments to a business, rather than home addresses. Because of the adult signature requirement, we cannot deliver to a PO Box address.
Amavi Cellars offers the benefit of suspending a single allotment, or placing a membership on hold for up to a year rather than cancelling. During the time of the club suspension or hold, club benefits and privileges will remain active. Any purchases made within the designated hold time will receive club rate. Although allotments will not populate, notice of club releases will continue during this time.
Should your club shipment be returned for any reason, the fee to re–ship would be the full rate charged by the common carrier to Amavi Cellars. If there has been some sort of error with delivery, we will be happy to work with you to resolve it.
All cancellations must be received in writing. All cancellations must be received at least 2 weeks prior to the scheduled ship date in order to be applied to the upcoming shipment.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for cancellations or questions regarding these policies.
Shipping address changes must be received at least 1 week prior to the scheduled ship date.
Important: you may be responsible for shipping charges if you neglect to contact us with address changes at least 1 week prior to the scheduled ship date.
Wine is a perishable product. For this reason, our shipping policy dictates that we do not ship wine during periods of extreme high or low temperatures, or when we feel there is a high risk of spoilage.
Shipping wine over a weekend can also expose it to unnecessary spoilage risk. For this reason, we make every effort to ship wine club and any other ground shipments on Mondays. We will ship 2-day air shipments as late as Tuesday, and next day air shipments as late as Wednesday.
You may choose to override our shipping policy, but we will not accept returns for spoiled wine that was not shipped according to our shipping policy.
Your credit card will be charged at the time of fulfillment, which happens before a weather hold decision is made. In some case-specific instances we may be able to reroute a shipment after it has been placed on weather hold (change to 2-day or overnight delivery, or hold for pick–up), barring logistical constraints.
While we make every effort to ensure your wine arrives in the same pristine condition as when it left the winery, we cannot control what happens to your shipment in transit. If you feel you have received a damaged bottle, please contact us immediately.
By becoming an Amavi Cellars Club Member, at any level, you agree to the following:
I am 21 years or older. As a member, I will receive allocations from Amavi Cellars in a schedule predetermined by my particular club. I agree that Amavi Cellars will charge my credit card for each allocations. If I have opted to have my allocation shipped, I will be charged shipping and taxes (shipments made within certain states are subject to state sales tax; void where prohibited by law) in compliance with the state to which the shipment is being sent.
It is my obligation to notify Amavi Cellars in writing of any address changes before packages are shipped. Amavi Cellars will not be responsible for shipping charges incurred due to misdirected packages.
I may cancel my membership by doing so in writing at any time without further obligation except for wines charged prior to Amavi Cellars’ receipt of my cancellation.
Membership is ongoing, but may be cancelled after receipt of your second shipment.
Cancellations must be submitted in writing to email@example.com. Please remember that it is your obligation to notify Amavi Cellars of any address changes before wines are shipped.
