The actual price of each Premium Selection (tri-annual for Platinum Members and biannual for Wine Members) varies, depending on the selection, and is anticipated to range between $600 and $700 per case.
States authorized for direct shipment: Due to the ever-changing nature of wine shipping laws, we may or may not be able to ship wines, directly or indirectly, to all states and countries. If 90 PWC is unable to ship directly to your state or country, we may be able to arrange for the sale and shipment of our products through a third party. Please note, when dealing through a third party, wine prices, discounts, and shipping costs may differ from those quoted by the 90 PWC.
Shipping terms: FedEx Air is 90 PWC’s carrier of choice. All Premium Selections will be delivered by the last day of the designated month. For Re-orders and special offers, the shipment will be delivered within two weeks of ordering.
Wine is a delicate commodity: 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. 90 PWC is not responsible for, and will not replace wine that is damaged by extreme weather conditions during shipment. You become responsible for the wine when it is picked up by the common carrier for shipment.
Returns and cancellation policy: There will be no returns and refunds allowed except for any bottle of wine that is damaged or spoiled at the time of delivery, subject to the limitations set forth below. We ask the customer to return the unfinished portion of the original bottle for replacement. By law, we cannot accept returns of alcoholic beverages unless the product is “corked” (that is, gone bad) or spoiled. We are unable to accept returns of wines that were damaged due to adverse weather conditions during shipment or storage, or wines that were ordered in error. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for the returns of damaged or spoiled wines. Once the wine is received and confirmed as damaged or spoiled, we will refund your credit card for the cost of the wine and the shipping and handling. Please contact us for return instructions. You may cancel your membership at any time but there will be no refund for the Registration Fee, Annual Fee and carryovers, and once you have been charged for a shipment of a Premium Selection, you may not cancel your order.
