The Sale of Alcoholic Beverages

Legal Requirements

Tayson Pierce Wines does not sell alcohol to persons under the age of 21 and makes every effort to ensure that alcoholic beverages are not delivered to anyone who is under the age of 21. By using this site, you affirm and acknowledge that you are over the age of 21, that the person placing the order and receiving a shipment of alcoholic beverages from Tayson Pierce Wines is over the age of 21 and that receipt of shipments containing alcoholic beverages requires the signature of a person 21 years of age or older who is not intoxicated. You also agree that any alcohol purchased from Tayson Pierce Wines is intended for personal consumption and not for resale. If you do not agree with these conditions of use, please do not use this site. If you intentionally or unintentionally misrepresent your age in order to provide alcohol to a person under the age of 21, Tayson Pierce Wines will prosecute you fully to the extent allowable by law. As required by the Communications Decency Act of 1996, Tayson Pierce Wines hereby notifies you that parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist you in limiting access to content that may be harmful to minors.

Credit Card Charges

Orders are by credit card only. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. The billing address for any such credit card needs to be provided at the time of your order and must be the address on your credit card statement. The billing address will be the address where your order will be shipped. If you wish to ship to an address different than your billing address, please provide this information at the time of your order.

Errors and Omissions

Occasionally, our listed prices, bottle sizes or quantities may be incorrect. We make every effort to make sure that our product database is accurate, however, in the event any such mistakes occur, Tayson Pierce Wines shall be held harmless for any such errors. In all cases, the customer will be contacted before any charges are made to the credit card so that the customer can make a decision to proceed or not proceed with the order (if possible).

Sales and Shipping

All orders are processed at, and shipped from, our facility in Napa, California. We ship by ground and air using FedEx and GSO (where available) and our shipping prices include packaging materials. Insurance may be available for an additional charge. Unless you live on the West Coast, we strongly discourage you from selecting “Ground Service” as your shipping method. During the winter and summer months, weather conditions and longer delivery times can often result in the spoilage of your order. Expedited delivery generally isn’t much more expensive and is more than worth it in order to protect your investment! Please note that when your wine order is picked up by the common carrier for delivery, the wine becomes your responsibility. Tayson Pierce Wines is not responsible for, and will not replace wine that is damaged by, extreme weather conditions during shipment.

All wines are sold in California and title passes to the buyer in California. Tayson Pierce Wines makes no representations as to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import wines into any state outside of California. The buyer is solely responsible for shipment of wines. By placing an order, you are authorizing Tayson Pierce Wines to act on your behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver the items in your order.

Please note that Tayson Pierce Wines may not be able to ship wine to certain states. Due to changing direct-shipping laws and regulations, the list of states that we ship to may change at any time. Tayson Pierce Wines will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that Tayson Pierce Wines in its sole discretion believes that such shipment will not subject Tayson Pierce Wines to the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by Tayson Pierce Wines may violate the law, we will contact the buyer to discuss shipping options, which options may include provision of an alternative shipping address in a state where the direct shipment of wines to consumers is permitted or storage of the wines at an acceptable third-party storage facility. Please contact Tayson Pierce Wines at eric@taysonpiercewines.com with any questions or concerns you may have regarding our shipping policies.

Tayson Pierce Wines will notify you by email when your wines are ready to be shipped. Generally, we will attempt to ship your wines in the Fall shortly after our annual offer is sent and your order is placed. However, please be aware that your order may be delayed until ideal weather and shipping conditions arise to protect your wines. You will be given the opportunity to coordinate the proper shipping address and method with us at that time.

Sales Tax

All wine is sold in the state of California and the title passes to the buyer in California. All purchases shipped to California addresses will be subject to a 7.75% sales tax.

Therefore, once your wine order has been picked up by the common carrier for delivery, the wine becomes your responsibility. Tayson Pierce Wines is not responsible for, and will not replace wine that is damaged by, extreme weather conditions during shipment. We also cannot accept returns for the following: wines that do not coincide with personal tastes, wines that have been adversely affected by customer’s storage, and wines that have been otherwise damaged as a result of any other adverse condition occurring while the wines were in the customer’s care.
