TERMS FOR WINE ORDERS

PLACEMENT OF WINE ORDER:  This Site allows you to review recommendations and trust in curated selections for wine and agree to purchase what is offered.  A&C acts as a concierge service and Italian purchasing business to place your wine order with a Permit Holder who will import/export you this wine.  Once your wine order is received and we confirm receipt of money to pay for this wine, which payment includes any taxes, shipping or handling fees, we will submit your order to an approved by an Italian liquor permit holder (“Permit Holder”).  Once your wine order is accepted and fulfilled by the Permit Holder you become the owner of this wine.  This wine sale takes place in Italy.

PAYMENT:  At the time you place your wine order you will be required to pay the purchase price that includes the price of the wine, any applicable federal, state or local taxes, the payment for shipping wine to you if you so choose, and the costs and expenses we charge to complete this wine order.  We accept payment electronically for orders placed through the BAROLO WINE CLUB Site by use of Paypal.  If you place your wine order through means other than this Site payment can be made through Wire Transfer.  Unless we otherwise agree, we must receive your payment before we will accept your order.

PRICING:  The price you pay for the wine obtained through this Site is set by the Italian Permit Holder as allowed and in conformity with Italian law regarding the pricing and sale of wine.  A&C aims to provide accurate pricing and product information. Your order is subject to cancellation by A&C or by the authorized Permit Holder, at the sole discretion of either party.

CONCIERGE SERVICE

The BAROLO WINE CLUB Site provides a concierge service that allows you to place orders for wine that we recommend.  BAROLO WINE CLUB does not hold an American liquor permit, is not authorized to sell wine directly to you and does not hold itself out as having the ability or authority to do so.  As a concierge service and wine consultant BAROLO WINE CLUB places your wine order with duly authorized businesses that hold United States and Italian alcohol retail sales permits (“Permit Holders”).
