Location of Sale: Maison du Prix Wines' warehouse and operations are located in the State of California. All products are sold to you in the State of California, with title passing from us to you in California at the time of purchase. All orders delivered within California will be charged Sonoma County sales tax at the time of purchase. Maison du Prix Wines is acting as your agent in arranging transport and we make no representations as to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import the products into any state or country. You, as the buyer, are responsible for understanding the laws regarding alcohol shipments and sales and/or use taxes or other applicable taxes that may apply to you and the location of delivery. Further, you hereby consent that you are in fact in compliance with and acting in accordance with the laws of the location of delivery. Any shipment that is seized or destroyed due to a violation of shipping laws or common carrier policies is not refundable or replaceable.
Age: By placing an order with us for wine or alcoholic beverages, you assert and affirm that you are at least 21 years of age or older and are legally able to purchase and consume alcoholic beverages. We retain the right to use reasonable means to verify a buyer's age and reserve the right to refuse to sell wine to anyone. All shipments require that the carrier verify the age of the recipient before delivery. We will comply with any legal entity in the prosecution of anyone under the age of 21 attempting to buy alcohol.
Acceptance: You agree to inspect all products upon delivery and notify us and the shipping carrier immediately (within 24 hours of receipt of delivery) in the event there is a shortage, damage has occurred, or there is some deficiency. You will be deemed to have inspected and accepted the products 24 hours after delivery.
Returns/Exchanges: Maison du Prix Wines only accepts exchanges if there was an error and the wine you received is not the wine you ordered. You must notify us at email@example.com within 24-hours of delivery to facilitate an exchange for the correct wine. If we do not have the correct wine in stock, we will refund you. We otherwise do not accept returns and are not responsible if a wine is corked (that is a winery issue), flawed, you simply don't like it and/or feel it's "over the hill" or it's damaged in transit and/or as a result of excessive heat or cold during shipment, etc.
Wine Bottle Conditions: We take every effort to ensure the wines we acquire have been well kept and are in excellent condition, or as stated in our offer or displayed in the photos we provide to you. Excellent condition, as referenced in these Terms & Conditions, is as follows: for bottles less than 20-years old, wines are deemed to be in excellent condition if they have base neck fill or better (fill within 3cm of the bottom of the cork if the bottle has no shoulder), no sign of seepage or cork failure, relatively clean and undamaged label and capsule, and good wine color. Small nicks or other marks on the label or capsule do not count against excellent condition. For wines over 20-years old, top shoulder fill or better (within 4cm or bottom of cork if bottle has no shoulder), relatively intact label and capsule, and good wine color. Modest label and/or capsule nicks, tears, moisture stains, and mildew stains are acceptable. Discoloration or oxidation do not count against excellent condition for wines of this age. Older white wines often take on a golden or orange color and older red wines often take on a brick tone. Such color changes do not count against excellent condition if it is consistent with the wine and its age. For high value bottles of older wine, we can provide digital photos. Please submit any photo requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that the bottle images associated with any product listing on our site may not be the actual bottle being offered for sale.
