Privacy Policy

The terms “us” or “we” refer to the owner of this website. The terms “you,” or “your” refer to the user or viewer of this website.


All are welcome to visit We are perhaps a bit paranoid, too (after all who reads these pages?), so we deactivated our stats package from Google Analytics. This means we have no idea how many people visit our site or where they come from. In other words, we collect nothing for our use. Yeah, it might be nice to know where people click or get lost, and how many people visit our site but, hey, Europe wants to make it harder for everybody to do business.


With the exception of our shopping cart provider and newsletter marketing service (see THIRD PARTIES, below), we will not share any personal information that we collect with any third parties or web sites. All the information you give us is completely private and used solely replying to your inquiries or shipping our merchandise to you. If you give us permission to send you marketing emails then we might use your email for that purpose, but never does that email get sold or distributed to any other web site or list.


Our online shopping cart provider is Vinoshipper. When you place an order to purchase wine using our website, you will be migrated to Vinoshipper’s secure website to process the transaction and subject to the Vinoshipper Privacy policy for that portion of your browsing experience. Vinoshipper assists in fulfillment and compliance with shipping laws for more than 1000 wineries. We have been working with Vinoshipper on wine sales since 2009. Due to the complexity of shipping laws, we only process out-of-state shipping of wine through Vinoshipper.

For our newsletter, we use Mailchimp to maintain a database of subscribers and to facilitate composing and sending newsletters. Mailchimp retains your contact information for our use. We store your name (so that we may personalize your salutation), your email address (so we can send you the newsletter via email), your city and/or state (if known, so that we can contact you concerning upcoming events we are scheduling in your area, as applicable) and information on how you learned about us (where available, so that we can improve the efficiency of our outreach to potential new customers). For more information about Mailchimp’s privacy policy concerning subscribers to our newsletter, please refer to the Mailchimp privacy policy.


If you submit a form on our “contact us” page, you will provide the contact information to us that you choose to provide. This enables us to respond to your comment and/or request, if necessary. Your contact information will remain in our inbox until it is deleted. If you have sent us a contact form and wish us to delete your information, you may contact us and we will delete and purge your contact from our inbox.


If you opt to receive our newsletter or marketing emails and decide to opt out, we have a simple unsubscribe form that is linked at the bottom of each email, or you may contact us directly and we will remove you from the list.


If you have any questions about your privacy, or want to make changes to your profile, or get off our marketing list, simply contact us using your preferred method of communication.
