SALES:

 

ALL SALES ARE FINAL.  We are a family-run business and we are unable to offer refunds or returns on purchases.

Each product and/or service listed on this site is sold by Parlor Wines, a licensed alcoholic beverage retailer. In all instances, any solicitation, invitation, offer, advertisement or communication is void where prohibited by applicable law.  Title to and ownership of wines purchased from our site pass from Parlor Wines to the buyer in the District of Columbia (Washington DC). Parlor Wines does not convey or intimate the right of any person to transport beverage alcohol across any state border. The buyer takes all responsibility for the shipping of his or her wine from Washington DC to his or her home state. Sales tax will be applied based on the seller’s location.

SECTION 3 – DELIVERY AND SHIPPING

ADULT SIGNATURE REQURED

An adult 21 years of age or older must sign for the wine at the time of delivery.  We cannot deliver wine without the signature of an adult 21 years of age or older.

SHIPPING CONDITIONS

During times of inclement weather, either extreme heat or extreme cold, Parlor Wines reserves the right to delay shipments to affected areas until conditions improve. Please be advised that Parlor Wines is not responsible for items damaged due to extreme weather conditions.


SHIPPING AND DELIVERY DONE AT YOUR REQUEST

By placing an order, the buyer authorizes Parlor Wines to act on buyer’s behalf in arranging for transportation of wine at the buyer’s direction. Parlor Wines will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer. The buyer represents that they are acting in a manner compliant with their state and local laws regarding the purchase, transport and delivery of wine. The buyer represents that they obtained any required permission, paid any required fees, is legally entitled to take possession of wine, is legally entitled to take quantities ordered, and certifies that he or she is at least 21 years of age. Parlor Wines assumes no liability for breach of any regulation by the purchaser. 


Parlor Wines requires customers to have their purchases delivered to themselves under such legal rights as may exist (and such rights change regularly – consumers are advised to know the requirements that apply to them) for them to take delivery of wine in the state or area in which they live. This legally permitted method of doing business involves the following steps (1) title legally transfers in the state of sale, where the goods are sold, (2) Parlor Wines files tax reports in accordance with District of Columbia law, and (3) the bill of lading shows the customer (who directs the process of having his or her wine or goods delivered in accordance with the customer’s legal rights) as the party directing the delivery.
