The Sale of Alcoholic Beverages

You must be 21 years of age or older to view the Westgarth Wines Website. In most locations, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to attempt to purchase alcohol.

Westgarth Wines does not sell alcohol beverages to anyone under the age of 21. By using the Westgarth Wines Website, you are representing that you are over the age of 21. Westgarth Wines retains the right to use reasonable means to verify a buyer's age and reserves the right to refuse to sell wine to anyone. All shipments require that the carrier verify the age of the recipient before delivery. In the event that any buyer intentionally or unintentionally misrepresents their age in order to obtain alcohol, Westgarth Wines will comply with any legal entity and/or appropriate authority in the prosecution of any such person under the age of 21 attempting to buy alcohol.


By placing an order through the Westgarth Wines Website, by e-mail, or by telephone, such sales are subject to the instant Terms and Conditions. Upon receipt of full and complete payment, Westgarth Wines will begin to compile your order. Your order may include wines that are in-stock, subject to pre-arrival, or are En-Primeur. Wines that are subject to pre-arrival will be purchased from our suppliers within twenty-eight (28) days of receipt of full payment and shipped according to the shipping option selected at checkout.

Any and all orders that have not been fully paid for within seven (7) days of placing the order, including weekends and holidays, will be cancelled immediately.

Subject to Availability

Delivery of your selected wines is subject to availability. If for any reason your selected wine is unavailable within twenty-eight (28) days of placing your order and Westgarth Wine’s receipt of full payment, unless the selected wines are Pre-Arrival or En-Primeur, Westgarth Wines shall issue a 100% refund only for the wines that are unavailable or for the wines that are unable to be shipped pursuant to applicable laws and regulations.

All Sales Final

All sales are final. Westgarth Wines does not offer returns, refunds, and/or exchanges unless the selected wines are unavailable or are unable to be shipped pursuant to applicable laws and regulations. Refunds will not be issued after the credit card has been run, unless the selected wines are unavailable or are unable to be shipped pursuant to applicable laws and regulations. Please be certain that you are able to commit to your order before placing them.

Westgarth Wines is unable to accept claims for wines that have been opened or tampered with as Westgarth Wines has no way of authenticating the claims once the cork has been pulled from the bottle. Westgarth Wines therefore cannot offer credit or accept returns for bottles that have been opened or tampered with.

Should there be an issue with your order at the time of delivery, please contact us immediately at sales@westgarthwines.com or 310 310 7600.


Once your wines have been imported into the United States and have arrived at the Westgarth Wines warehouse, Westgarth Wines will provide notice to you via e-mail that your wines are available to ship to your designated location. It is preferred that instructions to ship your wines to your designated location be indicated at the time of purchase or e-mailed to sales@westgarthwines.com within one (1) hour of ordering. When providing shipping instructions via e-mail, please include the Order Number of your purchase in the subject line of your e-mail. If shipping instructions were not provided at the time of purchase or within one (1) hour of ordering, then within thirty (30) days from the date of the notice that your wines have arrived at the Westgarth Wines warehouse, you shall provide Westgarth Wines instructions to ship your wines from the Westgarth Wines warehouse to your designated location. Westgarth Wines will not ship any wines until you have provided instructions and confirm that wines may be shipped to your designated location.  Please be advised that Westgarth Wines does not have earthquake insurance, and as such, we recommend that you provide prompt instructions and confirmation to have the wines delivered to you shortly after they have arrived at the Westgarth Wines warehouse.

In the United States, alcohol shipping laws are constantly changing. Westgarth Wines will make reasonable efforts to adhere to specific shipping instructions provided by you. Westgarth Wines will make every effort to deliver wines to you, however, it is your responsibility to ensure that delivery of the wines is in compliance with your local laws. It is also your responsibility to find an alternative for delivery should one be necessary. If, at the time of delivery we are unable to legally deliver wine to you, and no alternative may be found, your order will be cancelled, and a 100% refund of your payment will be issued.  Commercial trucking companies may be arranged for large shipments.

Shipping Insurance

Westgarth Wines charges 1% of the wine’s price for breakage and loss insurance which covers the loss of the package and/or the breakage of any bottles whilst in transit and up to the time of delivery to your designated location. Westgarth Wines is not liable for any damage, including temperature damage, to the wines in any form that may occur whilst in transit.


If, after 30-days from the date of the notice that your wines are available to ship, we have not received any instructions from you, your wines will immediately be placed into storage under Westgarth Wines’ name and you will be billed in arrears for storage for 12-months. It will be your responsibility to obtain insurance for your wines that are held in storage. Westgarth Wines does not carry earthquake insurance. If your wines remain in storage for more than 12-months with no instructions, you will then be considered to have forfeited your wines and Westgarth Wines shall sell your wines and issue 80% of the profit from such sales to you.

If you wish to store wines at the Westgarth Wines warehouse, please contact Westgarth Wines at sales@westgarthwines.com or 310 310 7600.

No Guarantee

As the character of the wine changes with age and responds directly to its environment and how it is cared for, Westgarth Wines is unable to guarantee the "drinkability" of every bottle sold, nor can Westgarth Wines be present to enforce such a guarantee. We can, however, guarantee that all wines are cared for professionally and properly stored in our facility from the time of acquisition.

Westgarth Wines does not partake in the manufacture and/or production of the wines but is simply a third-party broker of the wines.  Accordingly, Westgarth Wines is not accountable for “corked” wines or any other form of tainting and/or contamination of the wine which may occur at the time of its manufacture.  Issues regarding the manufacture, production, and/or labeling of the wines should be directed towards the manufacturer/producer of the wines.

To make your experience with Westgarth Wines enjoyable and to further assist you in your wine selection, we are happy to discuss your contemplated selections and provide photos of the wines before you complete your purchase. We are always open and honest and strive to provide our clients with the best experience. Please contact us if you have any questions about our policies regarding guarantees and drinkability.


Sales taxes are charged for all orders shipped to addresses in California, including to storage facilities in California. In addition to the base price of the wine, you are also responsible for any and all applicable sales/shipping taxes/duties/fees/tariffs (hereinafter “Additional Costs”) at the time of importation of the wines into the United States and shipment of the wines to their designated location. At checkout you will have the option to pre-pay the estimated Additional Costs or pay the Additional Costs 10-15 days before the wines are imported into the United States. Any changes in the amount of Additional Costs at the time of importation will be your responsibility to fulfill prior to importation. Any overpayment of the estimated Additional Costs will be refunded to you. Failure to pay the additional costs will result in the forfeiture of the purchased wine, and no refund will be issued.

Passage of Title

The policies and procedures of the sale and transportation vary worldwide. In the State of California, title to, and ownership of, all wine passes from seller to buyer upon purchase, and buyer takes all responsibility for shipping the wine to his or her designated location. By placing an order through Westgarth Wines, you authorize Westgarth Wines to act on your behalf to arrange the transportation of the wine and other goods to your designated place of delivery. Westgarth Wines makes no representation as to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import any wines, alcoholic beverages, or other goods to any location. You warrant that you are solely responsible for the shipment of wine and other goods purchased and for determining the legality and the tax/duty or other additional costs of having the wine and other goods shipped or imported to your designated place of delivery. Any shipment that is seized or destroyed due to violation of shipping laws or common carrier policy is not refundable.
