Revised January 2022
WINE CLUB POLICIES
- Members must be 21 years of age or older.
- Members must use an address in a state that allows shipments from us: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida (only approved zip codes), Minnesota, Missouri, Oregon, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, and District of Columbia.
- Members must have a valid VISA, AMEX, or Mastercard on file to receive club orders and benefits. The primary credit card on file will be charged at least one (1) week before the wine is shipped or picked up.
While there is no cost to join and no annual membership fee, your card will be charged at least one (1) week before the wine is shipped or picked up.
Charges vary for each club order depending on sales tax and wine selection.
Wines included in club orders are subject to change due to availability. Club default wines are carefully selected by our winery staff, but if you would prefer to customize your selection you may do so by logging into your account through our website at carlsonvineyards.com or upon your visit to either tasting room location prior to Wine Club processing.
In order to offer an exclusive experience to our members, we are unable to extend member benefits or member pricing to non-members.
Carlson Vineyards requests its members to satisfy a one (1) year minimum commitment to the Wine Club.
- With the CV3 wine club, there is a minimum purchase of 4 club orders, with a minimum of 3 bottles purchased per order, spread throughout the year, in the months of March, May, September, and November.
- With CV12 membership, there is a minimum of 2 club orders with a minimum of 12 bottles purchased per order, occurring in the months of April and October.
Wine Club Memberships are ongoing and may be canceled with a written notice via email at firstname.lastname@example.org once the club order minimum requirement has been fulfilled.
Requests for cancellation of membership must be made at least 10 days prior to club order processing. Cancellations of shipments or memberships cannot be honored during the wine club processing period.
Early cancellation of membership prior to meeting the minimum requirement as stated above will result in an early cancellation fee, which will be processed using the card on file. The fee will be $20 per unfulfilled club order, up to but not exceeding $80.
Cancellations must be submitted to our Wine Club Manager via email (email@example.com), or in writing by mail (Carlson Vineyards, 461 35 Road Palisade, CO 81526).
Memberships may be placed “on hold” at the Wine Club Manager’s discretion. To request a hold, you must email the Wine Club Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership holds longer than two shipments may result in cancellation of membership benefits.
Members are responsible for any state taxes that may apply to the purchase and/or shipment of any wines.
If you need your wine shipped or picked up during a specific time period, please notify our Wine Club Manager by phone at (970) 640-9455 or by email to email@example.com. With advance notice, we are happy to change your ship/pick-up date to ensure delivery.
In order to ensure that our wine club members always receive first access to our wines and receive the best pricing possible, we reserve our wine club exclusive wines for one full year from release. After the full year we may make these wines available to the public and roll out a new series of club exclusive wines to be made available only to club members for the first year.
-Terms & Conditions-
By placing an order, you represent to us that you are at least 21 years old and the person to whom you are directing delivery is at least 21 years old.
Club shipments require an adult signature at the time of delivery. For this reason, we cannot ship to a P.O. Box and strongly recommend shipping to an address where an adult 21 years or older is available to sign for the package.
You will be emailed tracking information once the carrier scans your package. These details will be sent to the email you provided in the shipping address field. Check to be sure that it isn’t sent to your spam or junk inboxes. Please check directly with the carrier for the most accurate delivery estimate so you can ensure someone is present to sign for your wine.
Please note: Ground delivery typically takes 1 – 7 business days, depending on your state’s proximity to Colorado.
Our primary carrier is UPS. To best manage your deliveries, we strongly recommend you sign up for UPS My Choice. It is free to sign up and allows you to request more services to simplify delivery, such as vacation holds or appointment delivery through this program, which only the recipient can select.
The carrier will make three delivery attempts before returning the package to us. If you know you will not be able to sign at the time of delivery, or if you receive a notice the package missed its attempted delivery, please reach out directly to UPS customer service at 1-800-742-5877. You may be able to:
- Arrange to pick the package up at a local facility. Please note, carriers will only hold packages for 5 days.
- Have the package sent to an alternate address. Please note, changing the delivery address will incur an additional expense.
It is your obligation to update account information before the beginning of a shipment month. Misdirected shipments and delivery difficulties may result in additional shipping charges.
To update your account information, please log into your account through our website at carlsonvineyards.com, or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A shipped order cannot be re-routed or adjusted once it has left our facility.
Changes cannot be made to shipping orders once we have processed.
Members are responsible for all shipping charges including those incurred due to misdirected and/or returned shipments.
Please note that if your wine is returned to us, you will be charged a $30 restocking fee for the returned wine club order.
We discourage shipping wine as a surprise gift, as packages containing alcohol require the signature of someone over 21 at the time of delivery. When gifting wine, we ask that you communicate with the recipient so they can expect a package from Carlson Vineyards that needs a signature. We also ask that you provide an email address for the recipient, so they can receive tracking information and best prepare for a successful delivery.
All information related to payment will only be sent to the contact in the billing field. Additionally, costs are not listed on our packing slips.
We will happily include a personalized gift note if you pass your desired message on to us!
We hold licenses to ship to:
- Washington, D.C.
Stay tuned, we will be adding shipping states to this list in the near future!
Tasting Room Pick-Up Members:
Pickup club members are notified one month in advance of each pick-up by email.
For our pick-up wine club members: Limited bottling wines are on a first-come, first-served basis. Members who request pick-up as the option for their order have 30 days from processing to retrieve their club wines from the specified pick-up location. Carlson Vineyards is unable to hold your wine shipments past this time. If after 30 days, you have not picked up your wine or made other arrangements with us to receive your wine, we will consider your wine abandoned and it will be returned to inventory with a $30 restocking fee.
After the pick-up grace period has ended, substitutions may result for your preferred bottle selection. Please contact us at (970) 640-9455 if you need to make other arrangements.
We are unable to process any returns/exchanges for bottle selections after 30 days.
Members should notify the tasting room staff in advance when friends or family are picking up for them.
