In placing an order, the buyer represents to seller (The Chicago Wine Company, referred to here as TCWC) that the buyer is at least 21 years old and the person to whom delivery will be made is at least 21 years old. Title to and ownership of all wine passes from TCWC to buyer in the State of Illinois, and buyer takes all responsibility for the product being transported from Illinois to the buyer’s selected destination. Buyer may pick up the product at TCWC’s or make independent delivery arrangements. Sales tax will be applied based on TCWC’s location in Illinois. TCWC makes no representation as to the legal rights of anyone to deliver or import any alcoholic beverages or other goods into any state. Buyer warrants he or she is solely responsible for the transport of the purchased products and for determining the legality and the tax/duty consequences of bringing the products to the buyer’s chosen destination.
Cancellation & Return Policy
There will be 10% cancellation fee enforced for any order cancelled by the customer within 30 days. After 30 days, cancellations will not be accepted. 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.
