Eligibility & Age Requirements
The Site is intended to be used and accessed by persons who are of legal age to purchase and consume alcohol. You must be 21 years old or older (“Legal Age”) to use this Site. If you are not of Legal Age, please exit the Site immediately. By continuing, you affirm that you are of Legal Age.
Wine may only be sold and delivered to individuals twenty-one years or older in the United States. There must be an adult of Legal Age present to sign for all Sfuso Inc. shipments. Each purchaser represents that: (1) he/she is at least of Legal Age; and (2) the person to whom any wine will be delivered is also of Legal Age. At the time of delivery, any domestic U.S. shipment arranged by Sfuso Inc. containing an alcohol beverage product will require the signature of an adult possessing identification proving he or she is at least of Legal Age. Further U.S. law requires that no delivery shall be made to a visibly intoxicated person.
Sfuso Inc.’ Services are presented solely for the purpose of promoting products and services available in the United States. If you access our Services from locations outside the United States, you do so at your own risk, and you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws.
You may be able to navigate and review Services on the Site without registering to create an “Account.” However, certain Services (like making a wine purchase) will require you to create an Account. If you create an Account, you are solely responsible for any activity that occurs through your Account. In order for us to provide you the best possible service, you agree to provide us with complete, accurate, and updated information for your Account at all times. If any information is incorrect or outdated, it can lead to errors or delays, for which we will not be responsible (for more information and details, refer to the Getting Your Sfuso Inc. section below).
You should not share your Account information, username, or password, or use another person’s Account or registration information for our Services without permission. Similarly, no one else should use your Account without your explicit permission. You are solely responsible for keeping your Account and its password secure, and for any consequences resulting from your failure to do so. You should never publish, distribute, or post login information for your Account.
You can always delete the personal information from your Account by emailing us at email@example.com

GETTING YOUR Sfuso Inc.
You must create an Sfuso Inc. Account to place an order through our Services. You may create an Account by providing requested registration information. It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete, and up-to-date information for your Account and you agree to update such information, as needed, to keep it accurate, complete and up-to-date.
Due to restrictions of many state laws, we only ship wine to those states where direct shipment of wine to consumers is permitted by law; currently we cannot ship to UT, AR, MS, AL, KY, DE, & RI AS WELL AS CERTAIN ZIP CODES IN FL, NH, CT, WV. This list is subject to change without notice. If your state is on this list, visit www.freethegrapes.org for more information on changing the laws in your state. In addition, each state imposes certain limitations on the amount of wine any particular resident may receive by direct shipment. Certain states also have dry areas to which alcohol cannot be shipped, so there are certain zip codes where we cannot ship. To ensure that you are able to order wine for direct shipment from our website, please consult the specific state requirements for your state.
We’ll need your name, mailing address, age, and telephone number to complete your order and send your Sfuso Inc. purchase. Due to direct shipping laws and regulations, Sfuso Inc. may be unable to arrange the shipment of wine by you to certain states or to prohibited “dry” regions within certain states. The laws, regulations, and court decisions affecting the interstate shipment of wine are in constant flux and may change at any time. Order recipients must be residents of the United States in a state and/or zip code where it is legal to directly ship wine.
We encourage all Sfuso inc customers to ship to their work addresses. As there needs to be someone to receive and sign the package that is at least of Legal Age, shipping to your work address greatly increases your chances of receiving your wine on time.
After making wine order selections and providing us with delivery information, you will see a prompt for your payment details, such as your credit card information and any promotional codes or gift cards you may have. By entering your payment information and submitting your order, you authorize us and our third-party payment processors to charge the amount of the order to your selected payment method. Payment is due upon placing your order.
In transactions collected during our Pre-Sale Wine period (defined below), you are authorizing Sfuso Inc. to charge your card for a future amount at a later date. Wine sold by Sfuso Inc. may be offered on a pre-arrival or futures basis. This means that Sfuso Inc. is not yet in physical possession of the wine at the time it is sold to you, even though Sfuso Inc. has committed to producing a wine that matches its sale to Customer (“Pre-Sale Wine”). Most wines normally arrive within a few weeks or months of the purchase with some exceptions, which may arrive as much as one year later from the initial offer. Once wine production is complete and has passed inspection, Sfuso Inc. will update the order status automatically and trigger an email notification to the purchaser.
The estimated time for Pre-Sale Wine to arrive is displayed on the website when ordering. The time period indicated represents our best estimate. Occasionally, the original estimate may be extended based on new information we receive. We understand this can be frustrating, but Sfuso Inc. does not control all variables which affect timing of delivery. For example, a producer may defer a release beyond its original anticipated date. Please be assured that delivery of your wine is guaranteed. However, Sfuso Inc. shall not be liable for any expenses caused by delivery delays as no promise of delivery by a given date can be made with certainty.
Checking Order Status:
We know how exciting it is to expect a Sfuso Inc. delivery. Once wines are on their way to you, we’ll send you an email confirmation with tracking information. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding your order status.
Risk of Loss
The risk of loss and title for all products you order passes to you upon our delivery to the carrier (such as UPS or FedEx).
Customer Satisfaction & Commitment to Quality
If you’re not satisfied with your Sfuso Inc. purchase for whatever reason, please contact email@example.com explaining the reason for your dissatisfaction. Each situation will be reviewed on an individual basis in light of facts and circumstances of that case and resolved promptly. We may make arrangements for a return, or re-shipment, if we deem it appropriate. As a condition of receiving credit towards a future purchase or re-shipping, we may require you to return the wine product to Sfuso Inc.. Subject to the conditions set forth herein and as decided in our sole discretion, we may give you as a sole remedy, a refund in an amount equal to the price of the product, plus applicable taxes, by providing you with an account credit.

If such dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of these terms to negotiate or arbitrate, remains unsettled following such negotiation, the matter shall be determined by arbitration in Boston, Massachusetts, before a sole arbitrator, in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for preliminary or interim equitable relief, or to compel arbitration in accordance with this section, without breach of this arbitration provision.
