FAQ – DELIVERY
How are my bottles protected during delivery ?
We use extremely strong cardboard packaging, where each bottle is housed and protected in a separate cardboard compartment. All our packaging is UPS approved, specifically designed and adapted to the transport of bottles to guarantee delivery in perfect condition.
At what time will your order be delivered to you ?
When picking up the package at the estate, you will receive an email informing you that your order is now on its way. You will receive a UPS tracking number (or UPS tracking number) which will allow you to track the delivery of your package as well as to know its estimated delivery date.
How can I have my order delivered to an address other than my billing address ?
When validating your order, fill in your personal details on the one hand. If you wish to have your order delivered to a different address, check the box labeled “Ship to a different address?” and fill in the different fields. you can also specify additional notes in the “Order notes (optional)” field.
What if one or more bottles are broken during delivery ?
This is extremely rare, but it can happen …
Always check your packages at the time of delivery: if a bottle is broken, the packaging box will inevitably be marked (significant stain, even dry). A simple glance is enough.
Then open the box in the presence of the deliveryman and have the number and types of damaged bottles mentioned on the delivery slip. If possible, take pictures and let us know right away.
Are the packages insured? what happens if the bottles arrive in pieces ?
What is important is to check the condition of your packages and your bottles upon receipt and in the presence of the delivery person. If you identify any breakage, mention it in writing to the deliveryman on the delivery slip, specifying the number and references of the broken bottles, and keep a copy. Notify us immediately by sending us a scan of the delivery slip as well as photos of the damaged package and bottles.
We will do what is necessary to have the broken bottles re-delivered to you without delay and at no cost.

We advise you to repeat your attempt to pay with your card. If the 2nd attempt remains unsuccessful, we advise you to use another card if you have one, or to choose another payment solution (preferred bank transfer).

You have selected payment by bank transfer, then validate your order.
You will then receive a confirmation email with the bank details of the account to which you will have to transfer the amount of your order. When the transfer is confirmed by our bank, we will send your package which will be delivered within 72 hours after this payment confirmation.
Is my credit card payment secure ?
Yes, your payment by credit card is completely secure. We use an SSL protocol for our website which guarantees that the information exchanged is encrypted. Even if intercepted, this information could not be deciphered.
To make sure you are using a secure site connection, verify that the beginning of the site address begins with “https”. The “s” means that this site uses SSL to secure transactions.
