TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE
Our Shipping Policy
All wines and spirits purchased from Millesima USA LLC are sold at its licensed premises in New York State, where title passes to the buyer. For a shipping and handling fee, Millesima will, at the request of the buyer, arrange shipment of wines only (not spirits) to a buyer in certain other states. Buyers are advised that some states place restrictions, including but not limited to limits on quantity, on the alcoholic beverages which a resident may bring into the state, and it is the buyer’s sole responsibility to be informed of and abide by such restrictions, and to comply with any conditions the buyer’s state may impose, including but not limited to the payment of any taxes such state may impose on wines shipped into such state. By placing an order, the buyer warrants that he or she is in compliance with the laws and regulations of the state to which the buyer elects to ship wines. Furthermore, by placing an order, the buyer authorizes Millesima USA LLC to engage and select a common carrier on the buyer’s behalf. In order to comply with state laws, Millesima does not ship wines to addresses in the following states: AK, AL, DE, FL, HI, IL, IN, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, MS, MT, NH, NJ, NM, OK, PA, RI, TN, TX, VT, UT and WY. Please contact Millesima if you reside in one of these states to discuss possible alternative arrangements to purchase wines. You must be at least 21 years of age to order, purchase and receive wine by U.S. federal law. MILLESIMA USA LLC requires the signature of an adult (minimum 21 years of age) upon delivery of the order. Millesima does not ship to PO boxes, APO/FPO addresses, or third-party mailbox rental centers. In addition, Millesima does not ship to addresses in foreign countries, nor does it ship to freight forwarders or brokers who intend to ship the wines to destinations outside of the U.S.
Minimum purchase for delivery
Millesima asks for a minimum purchase of $25.00 before tax in order to arrange shipment of purchases utilizing the Website. This applies to all states where Millesima is currently able to ship.
Conditions Affecting Shipment
Our aim is to provide delivery service which is as fast and reliable as possible. Unless you request otherwise, your purchase will be shipped via standard ground shipping. To discuss the expedited delivery options which are available at an additional charge, please contact us toll free at 1-877-MILLUSA. Dates of shipping and delivery that Millesima USA LLC may provide its customers are approximations only, and actual shipping and delivery dates may vary. At Millesima USA LLC, all our wines are stored in a temperature-controlled warehouse and/or retail premise, and we wish to provide our customers every possible assurance that our fine wines are handled and stored in the best possible conditions while the products are under our control. During seasons or periods of extreme heat or cold, we reserve the right to delay your order and to release it for delivery only when conditions improve. In such circumstances, we will advise you at the time your order is processed that we do not recommend shipping your order. Millesima USA LLC does not accept responsibility for goods damaged during transit to the buyer. Please take note of the terms below concerning Refunds, Returns & Exchanges.
Fees vary by destination and are indicated at the time the customer finalizes the “Shopping Basket” on the Millesima Website, or the fees will be quoted by Millesima USA LLC at the time an order is placed on the telephone. For customers in New York State, shipping will be charged to the customer for a delivery of merchandise with an invoice value before tax of up to $249.99. Shipping is free for deliveries with an invoice value before tax of $250.00 or more for delivery addresses in: Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island Shipping fees for “futures” merchandise are billed to the customer at the time the wines are ready for delivery.
Shipping of Original Wood Cases
All shipments utilizing a common carrier that you authorize Millesima USA LLC to select on your behalf by placing an order are packed in protective carton shippers approved by such common carriers. For an additional charge, you may request shipment of the original wood case packed in a separate carton shipper. To do so, please e-mail us at email@example.com or telephone us toll free at 1-877-MILLUSA.
An order for wines sold as "futures" for delivery at a future date must normally be paid at the time of order by a deposit equal to the full value of the merchandise. Customers are advised that some states may prohibit or restrict such "futures" sales, and it is their responsibility to be informed of and abide by such state laws. Following processing of a "futures" order and receipt of deposit, a pro forma invoice will be mailed to the customer's billing address. This invoice together with proof of payment will guarantee ownership of the wines. Once the invoice has been mailed and the deposit has been received, the order is final and cannot be cancelled or modified. Additional "futures" wines may be ordered, but they will be invoiced and must be paid separately. Projected arrival and delivery dates for "futures" are estimates only and may vary by several months, depending upon the timing of the release from the estate and other factors. When the wines are ready for delivery, the customer will be contacted by Millesima USA LLC to confirm delivery arrangements and to advise of the sales tax and shipping charges, if any, which apply at that time. The customer will have 30 days from date of notification to pay any and all remaining charges and either take delivery of the merchandise or pick up the wines at the Millesima USA LLC retail premise. No "futures" merchandise shall be delivered or may be picked up until and unless all outstanding charges are paid in full. Millesima USA LLC does not store wines for customers at its retail premise or elsewhere. If the customer fails to pay all remaining charges by 30 days from date of notification of availability, Millesima USA LLC reserves the right to cancel the order. Millesima USA LLC will, in the case of such cancelation, refund the full amount of the original deposit paid by the customer. In the event that any wines ordered as "futures" by a customer are unavailable at the time of delivery, Millesima USA LLC will refund the full value of any and all such "futures" wines as originally invoiced to the customer.
An order for wines sold as "Pre-Arrivals" for delivery at a future date must normally be paid at the time of order. Customers are advised that some states may prohibit or restrict such "Pre-Arrivals" sales, and it is their responsibility to be informed of and abide by such state laws. Following processing of a "Pre-Arrivals" order, an invoice will be mailed to the customer's billing address or by email. This invoice together with proof of payment will guarantee ownership of the wines. Once the invoice has been mailed and the payment has been received, the order is final and cannot be cancelled or modified. Projected arrival and delivery dates for "Pre-Arrivals" are estimates only and may vary by several months, depending upon our next shipment. When the wines are ready for delivery, the customer will be contacted by Millesima USA LLC to confirm delivery arrangements. In the event that any wines ordered as "Pre-Arrivals" by a customer are unavailable at the time of delivery, Millesima USA LLC will refund the full value of any and all such " Pre-Arrivals " wines as originally invoiced to the customer.
