By agreeing to become a member of the Boutique Wine Club, you agree to accept and authorize payment of up to four club shipments per year and a minimum of the first two shipments following your sign-up date. If you cancel your membership prior to paying for the first two shipments, you agree pay a $50 early termination fee. Henceforth, after paying for two shipments, there is no additional charge to cancel your membership, and you may do so at any time up to 5 days prior to the published date of next wine club shipment. Otherwise, once you agree to join the Boutique Wine Club, you will receive and authorize payment of every shipment until you cancel by written notice.

If the product is received by the club member but is not satisfactory to the club member for any reason such as damage, spoilage, or unsatisfactory taste or quality, Boutique Wine Club will replace the product with a comparable product of its choice and at no charge to the club member. Once the replacement product is issued, Boutique Wine Club is no longer liable for providing additional replacement products.
Boutique Wine Club may, at its discretion and for any reason, cancel a club member’s membership and rights to receiving product without notice or continuing liability to provide the club member product, service or attention.
