Shipping & Returns

Returns Policy

You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).

If you need to return an item, simply login to your account, view the order using the "Complete Orders" link under the My Account menu and click the Return Item(s) button. We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item.

 

Shipping

GreatWine2U.com will ship to you wherever we may legally do so. Shipping is done using approved packaging and shipments will require an adult signature. Currently, we do not ship to the following states:

Alabama Arkansas Delaware
Florida Georgia Hawaii
Kansas Massachusetts Maryland
Maine Michigan Mississippi
Montana New Jersey Oklahoma
Pennsylvania Rhode Island South Dakota
Tennessee Texas Utah
Vermont    

 We review the patchwork of laws regularly and shipping information is liable to change without notice. If your state appears on this list, please contact us at info@greatwine2u.com and we'll try to find a legal alternative. We wish to go on record by emphasizing that not being able to ship to wine lovers like you anywhere in the USA is a restriction that flies in the face of the continuous pabulum we are fed; that we are the "freest nation on earth." We urge you to bombard your state legislators to treat you with respect and to allow you the occasional bottle of fine wine that may not be available in your state via a state monopoly (in itself a travesty!) or via one of your state's distributors. Remember that the effect of this is to tell you what wines you may or may not drink!
