Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary or any disclaimer, TCWC agrees to refund the purchase price to the purchaser of any wine from TCWC that is not of the vintage or from the producer as was represented by TCWC, including but not limited to situations where the wine is counterfeit or has indicia that it is not authentic sufficient to make the value materially less than if such indicia were not present, provided that the purchaser directly purchased the wine from TCWC and returns such wine to TCWC.
