OUR TERMS of SALE
  1. Quantities are limited to stock on hand. Wines are sold on a first come first serve basis and after-hour email and phone orders will be taken into account at store opening the next day. Orders must be paid on confirmation of your order. Availability of all products is subject to phone and/or email confirmation. All email offers are valid for one week unless otherwise noted.
  2. Alcoholic beverages may be sold and delivered only to persons who are at least 21 years old. In placing your order, you represent to us that you are at least 21 years old and that the person to whom the wine is sold and/or delivered is at least 21 years of age as of the date of order and sale.
  3. Title and ownership of all wines and other products passes from The Wine Hotel to the purchaser in the state of California and the purchaser takes all responsibility for the shipping of it from The Wine Hotel, 5800 West Third Street, Los Angeles, California to the purchaser’s address. By facilitating transportation of the wine, The Wine Hotel is providing a service to, and acting on behalf of the purchaser. By utilizing this service from The Wine Hotel, the purchaser is representing that they are acting in a fashion compliant with their local and state laws regarding the purchase, transportation, and delivery of wine. The purchaser represents that they have obtained any required permission, paid any required fees or taxes, is working through properly licensed intermediaries where required, is legally entitled to take possession of wine and is legally entitled to take quantities ordered. The Wine Hotel only uses shippers that require the purchaser to provide proof of age at the time of delivery.
  4. All sales are subject to CA sales tax of 9% regardless of destination in the USA or buyer’s legal residence.
  5. The Wine Hotel is not responsible for any breakage or damage of wine sent by common carrier to any party or individual. WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATION TO THE LEGAL RIGHTS OF ANYONE TO SHIP OR IMPORT WINES INTO ANY STATE OUTSIDE CALIFORNIA.
  6. The Wine Hotel prices do not include shipping, handling, insurance or foreign duties.
  7. Futures/pre-arrival wine purchases are not available for immediate pick-up or delivery. We can provide only estimated arrival times for particular wines by phone: 323-937-9463.
Some things to know as you peruse our website:
  1. A mixed-case discount of 10% will apply to the purchase of 12 or more mixed bottles. This discount does not apply to bottles marked "NO DISCOUNT,” “SALE,” or often “INQUIRE.”
  2. We offer free storage for all the wine you buy from us for up to one year.
  3. Can't find what you're looking for? We're happy to help you find bottles that we may not have in stock. Give us a call at 323-937-9468 or drop us an e-mail at drinkwell@thewinehotel.com
  4. We charge California Sales Tax on all wine, beer, cider, and accessories sales without exception. As our client you take full possession of your purchase in the state of California, even if it ultimately is shipped to an out-of-state residence or business. This means that you will be shipping your wine to yourself according to your state’s laws governing shipment of wine. We understand that our practice is not the norm in the retail wine trade, but we believe it is the only responsible position. By example, New York State is a ‘reciprocal’ state, as is California, so it is legal for us to ship wine between the two. The catch-22 even big online wine retailers don’t want you to think about is that New York State requires out-of-state retailers to register with their State Liquor Authority, pay an annual license fee of some $8,000.00, and provide detailed sales reports 18 times per year of all sales shipped into New York State. Recently, New York State sued one of the largest wine internet retailers, The Wine Library of New Jersey, for selling and shipping wine to New York State residents without a license.
  5. We only ship wine within the state of California. We are happy to help you arrange your own shipping by packing your wine in FedEx- and UPS-approved wine shippers (no charge for packaging). You can either email us prepaid shipping labels or simply email us your FedEx or UPS account number and will we affix handwritten labels to your packages. We also request that you inform your shipper of when you want your package(s) picked up at our facility where it will rest in our temperature and humidity controlled warehouse until departure.
IMPORTANT:If you wish to ship wine outside California and would like to arrange your own shipping, choose HOLD FOR FURTHER SHIPPING INSTRUCTIONS during the check-out process,then email us at drinkwell@thewinehotel.com with your shipping instructions.
