Due to federal and state regulations, all wine shipments must be received by an adult 21 years of age or older. An adult must be physically present to sign for the wine delivery. The person receiving delivery will be required to show identification proving that he or she is at least 21 years old. Therefore we highly recommend that you provide us with a business shipping address for best service.

Generally orders are shipped in 1-2 business days unless buyer requests to hold or ship on a specific date. Orders are shipped via FedEx or UPS. Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout. Federal regulations make it illegal to ship wine to P.O. Box or APO address. If you enter a P.O. Box or APO address as your shipping address, the wine will be returned to us and you will be charged for the original shipment,  the return shipment and the subsequent shipment to a valid street address. FedEx also offers ‘Hold at FedEx Location’,  which will hold your packages for 5 business days. If you’d prefer this option, please indicate the address of the Hold FedEx Location in the note section on the checkout page.

We cannot schedule shipments for a specific time during the day. During heat / bad weather conditions, we recommend using 2nd Day or Next Day shipping to avoid spoilage.

You may choose any of the following delivery options.

Domestic Only:

Ground – One to five business days in transit, depending on the location

2 Day Air – Two business days in transit

Next-Day Air – One business day in transit

(Saturday delivery is available for 2-Day and Next Day Air)

Express Saver, Two Day, Standard Overnight, Priority Overnight

*To ensure faster delivery, we recommend to use a business address.

Damaged in Shipping

Aucwine.com is not responsible for wines damaged by heat or cold exposure. Wines spoiled by changes in temperature cannot be recovered. Please choose your shipping address and shipping method carefully.

Our items are well packaged to protect your items. However, if you do receive damaged merchandise, please email info@aucwine.com or call us at (310)926-4951. Aucwine.com insures all shipments. Aucwine.com will handle all claims in the event of loss or breakage. We will ask you to ship back the damaged bottles. As soon as we receive them, we will process a refund for your damaged items.

Incorrect or missing items

Although the occasion is rare, if you receive incorrect items, we will arrange for a return pick up. If you find that items are missing from your order, we are happy to assist you to process a new order, aucwine.com  will issue a refund for your missing items and the original shipping cost, or send you the item immediately with no shipping charge.

Reshipping

When an order is returned to us after several delivery attempts at the address provided by the customer, we will happily assist you with the reshipment arrangements. However, please note that the additional shipping fee will apply.

All sales are final. We do not issue refunds on wines that are deemed undrinkable(spoilage) or “corked”. Return requests are accepted within 1 week after receiving bottle if different from description. Only unopened bottles are accepted.

Wine industry estimates that between 3 and 7 percent of all wines sealed with natural corks are ruined because of a natural fungus in corkwood (corked wines). Wines are purchased "as is" and at the buyer's risk as to the drinkability of the wine. This policy includes "corked" wines. This is completely uncontrollable of Aucwine.com.

Please note that although every effort is made to describe or measure the levels of older vintages, corks more than 20 years old begin to lose their elasticity and levels can change between cataloguing and sale. Old corks occasionally fail during or after shipment. Buyers must understand that there is always a risk of cork failure with old wines. Under no circumstances can an adjustment of price or credit be made after delivery.

We will not be responsible for any weather damage nor will we replace bottles damaged by the weather.

Changes and Cancellation

Confirmed Orders can only be changed or cancelled through Aucwine.com. Once you have placed and confirmed your order, it is not possible to access it to cancel or make any edits to the order. Cancellation or change requests should be made as soon as possible after placing your order.

Items that have been already been shipped

While we try our best to accommodate order cancellation requests, the timing for such requests is critical. Once our warehouse has started to process your order, it is not possible to make any changes or stop the shipment.

If we are not able to cancel an order because it is already in process or shipped, we can contact the carrier to process an address correction or to ask for them to return the package to Aucwine.com. In these cases, a refund upon return can be requested. Once the package arrives back at our warehouse, your refund would be processed, less the original and the returning shipping fees.
