The Sale of Alcoholic Beverages

Legal Requirements

SAMPL 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 SAMPL 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 SAMPL 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, SAMPL shall have the right to take action against you or seek indemnification from you for any suit to which SAMPL may be subject to the full extent allowable by law.  As required by the Communications Decency Act of 1996, SAMPL 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/tube/container 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, SAMPL 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 SAMPL’s facility in California. We ship by ground air using FedEx, UPS and GSO (where available) and our shipping prices include packaging materials. 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.  Please note that when your wine order is picked up by the common carrier for delivery, the wine becomes your responsibility.  SAMPL is not responsible for, and will not replace wine that is damaged by, extreme weather conditions during shipment.  Once orders are processed, typical expected transit times are one to five business days.

 

Please note that current laws prohibit SAMPL from shipping wines to certain states.  Due to changing direct shipping laws and regulations, the list of states that we ship to may change at any time.  If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by SAMPL 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.

 

SAMPL will notify you by email when your wines are ready to be shipped.  Please be aware that your order may be delayed until ideal weather and shipping conditions arise to protect your wines. An adult signature will be required for delivery of alcoholic beverages. To ensure prompt and successful deliveries of your wines, please ensure that an adult (21 years of age or older) will be present and available to sign for your shipment. SAMPL will not be held responsible for any shipment delays (or wine damaged as a result of such delays) caused by erroneous information provided by the customer at the time of ordering or caused by the failure of an adult to be present for signature at the time the wines are delivered.

Please contact us at hello@drinksampl.com with any questions or concerns you may have regarding our shipping policies.

 

Sales Tax

All wine sold on the Site shall be subject to state and local sales taxes which are applicable based on the delivery address provided by buyer.  The applicable sales taxes shall be indicated at check out and applied at the time of sale.
