Your use of the Joseph Phelps Vineyards (“JPV”) Site is expressly subject to the following Terms of Service and Conditions of Sale (“Terms and Conditions”). If you do not agree with any of these Terms and Conditions, do not access or otherwise use this website or any information or materials contained on this site, or place any orders or otherwise purchase products. Your use of the Site shall be deemed to be your agreement to abide by each of the Terms and Conditions set forth herein. We may update these conditions at any time and from time to time, and your continued use of the Site following any such change shall be deemed to indicate your acceptance of any modifications to these Terms and Conditions.
By using this Site, you agree that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, device or online account, and any account information saved thereon; and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. JPV reserves the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders in its sole discretion.
Sale of Alcoholic Beverages
JPV does not sell alcohol to persons under the age of 21 and makes every effort to ensure that alcoholic beverages are not delivered to anyone who is under the age of 21. By using this site, you affirm and acknowledge that you are over the age of 21, that the person placing the order and receiving a shipment of alcoholic beverages from us is over the age of 21 and that receipt of shipments containing alcoholic beverages requires the signature of a person 21 years of age or older who is not intoxicated.
If you intentionally or unintentionally misrepresent your or someone else’s age in order to provide alcohol to a person under the age of 21, JPV shall have the right to take action against you or seek indemnification from you for any suit or action to which we may be subject to the full extent allowable by law. As required by the Communications Decency Act of 1996, JPV hereby notifies you that parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software, or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist you in limiting access to content that may be harmful to minors.
You also agree that any alcohol purchased from the Site is intended for personal consumption and not for resale.

Credit Card Charges
As detailed on our membership page HERE we offer several Phelps Preferred membership tiers.
All of the membership offerings are offered as subscription programs that automatically renew unless and until you cancel your membership or your membership is terminated pursuant to these terms and conditions of use.
By signing up as a member, you are agreeing to the automatic renewal of your membership and having your credit card automatically charged four times per year (Original) and five times per year (Flagship & Collector) prior to each shipment. The amount charged per shipment for each membership level depends on the membership selected and varies for each shipment based on the wines specified in the shipment, plus any applicable taxes and shipping charges. Membership may be cancelled with advance written notice after 4 shipments. Additional wine purchased online or at the winery does not apply towards your annual subscription commitment. You are able to skip one shipment in an 18-month period. Please note, once a shipment has processed, we are unable to cancel it.
Cancellation of Membership:
In order to cancel your subscription, you can either:
- Call us at (800) 707-5789
- On our website by logging in to your User Profile
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org;
Your membership must be cancelled prior to your next allocation processing. Once a shipment has processed, we are unable to cancel it.
We will send you a confirmation email with the automatic renewal disclosure and cancellation information to the email address you provide us. Please make sure to keep a copy for your records.
Errors and Omissions
Occasionally, our listed prices, bottle sizes, vintages or quantities may be incorrect. We make every effort to make sure that our product database is accurate; however, in the event any such mistakes occur, JPV shall be held harmless for any such errors. In the event that a discrepancy is identified prior to processing of an order, the customer will be contacted before any charges are made to the credit card so that the customer can make a decision to proceed or not proceed with the order (if possible). We will not fulfill an order if we determine in our sole discretion that it was entered due to a mistake or may be fraudulent and will attempt to contact you in such event. If you make a mistake in the entry of an order that you place, contact us immediately before the order is processed so that we can correct your order. If your order has already shipped before you alert us to an error you made in the entry of your order, you may be responsible for additional shipping costs or other costs we incur as a result.
Sales and Shipping
All orders are processed at, and shipped from, warehouse locations in Napa and Kentucky. Insurance may be available for an additional charge. Unless you live on the West Coast, we do not ship during certain months of the year via Ground Service. During the winter and summer months, weather conditions and longer delivery times can often result in the spoilage of your order. Please note that when your wine order is picked up by the common carrier for delivery, the wine becomes your responsibility. We want to ensure that you receive wine you order from us in good condition. If your order is damaged in the course of shipping, contact us with 10 days of receipt and we will arrange for a replacement. To make a claim for a damaged shipment, go to email@example.com. Joseph Phelps Vineyards is not responsible for, and will not replace, wine that is damaged by extreme weather conditions during shipment.
You agree that you are not purchasing wine from JPV to ship to another state or resell.
Please note that JPV may not be able to ship wine to certain states. Due to changing direct-shipping laws and regulations, the list of states that we ship to may change at any time. JPV will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that JPV in its sole discretion believes that such shipment will not subject us to the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. The Site will not allow you to place an order if we cannot legally ship to you. If you live in a state where the direct shipment of wine by us may violate the law, we will contact you to discuss shipping options, which options may include provision of an alternative shipping address in a state where the direct shipment of wines to consumers is permitted or storage of the wines at an acceptable third-party storage facility.
We will notify you by email when your wines are ready to be shipped. Please be aware that your order may be delayed until ideal weather and shipping conditions arise to protect your wines. An adult signature will be required for delivery of alcoholic beverages. To ensure prompt and successful deliveries of your wines, please ensure that an adult 21 years of age or older will be present and available to sign for your shipment. If no one will be at home to accept delivery, we recommend using a business address for shipping, or arranging with your shipper to hold your shipment at their location for pickup. We will not be held responsible for any shipment delays (or wine damaged as a result of such delays) caused by erroneous information provided by the customer at the time of ordering or caused by the failure of an adult to be present for signature at the time the wines are delivered.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns you may have regarding our shipping policies.
Return & Refund Policy
If you are unsatisfied with a wine that you purchased directly from Joseph Phelps Vineyards for any of the following reasons, we will replace or refund your purchase:
- If your wine is corked – please save the bottle, wine, and cork to send back to us
- If your wine has been damaged in transit
- If you received a wine that is different than the wine you ordered;
To initiate the return process, please contact our Customer Service Team – email@example.com. Please note, only wines purchased at JPV qualify. All refunds will be placed to a JPV gift card.
All wine is sold in the state of California. We collect sales tax for the states to which we ship at the applicable rates for each state.
