Non-compliant wine refers to wines with characteristics that differ from the producer's quality standards. By way of example but not limited to the typical smell and taste of "cork"rather than liquid leaks or a label completely ruined in transit.
When the wine does not conform it can be replaced, provided it is still available, without any additional cost to the customer. If the wine is no longer available, the amount spent will be refunded.
As soon as the customer detects a presumed non-conformity, he/she must report the presumed non-conformity of one or more bottles from one or more wineries by email to [email protected], within 24 months from the purchase and no later than 30 days from the discovery of the defect. The report must be accompanied by the Apewineboxes order number and the pick-up address, as well as a description of each individual bottle alleged to be non-conforming and the non-conforming quantity.
Apewineboxes will send its own courier free of charge if the non-conforming goods have a monetary value exceeding 50 euros, otherwise the cost of the courier will be charged to the customer.
The product or products must be returned with at least 3/4 of the original contents and closed with the original cap properly trimmed. The return package must be given to the courier in its original packaging to protect the transport of the wine. This procedure is necessary so that Apewineboxes can be reimbursed by the producer or whoever is entitled to do so.
Once the wine has been returned and the non-conformity has been assessed, a new shipment of bottles of the same type and vintage is immediately arranged, if still available, or a refund of the amount spent is immediately made.
The procedure adopted uses the minimum of bureaucracy necessary for the appropriate checks and is completely free of charge for the customer.
In the event of a dispute, the bottles remain available in Apewineboxes for further proceedings by the competent authorities and the customer will be charged for the courier's collection costs.
The promotions apply to products not already on offer in the shop.
