Return and Refund Policy

Return Policy

To protect the provenance of delivered wines, exchange and returns are not allowed.

Corked Wines

While we make every attempt to provide wines of good quality and provenance, we cannot guarantee the personal 'drinkability' for every bottle we sell. It is the industry standard that older wines are purchased "as is" and at the buyer's risk as to the drinkability of the wine. This policy includes "corked" wines (those tainted with TCA and smell of wet cardboard). This wine fault occurred during the cork selection process and is completely out of our control. For the aforementioned reasons, no refund or exchange will be granted.

Sonoma County is one of the United States' most important wine regions. Vines have been grown here since the 1850s and, apart from the inevitable history brought about by Prohibition, the county's relationship with wine has been prolific and unbroken.

Planted in 1982, Heintz Ranch is located in a pedigreed site with mature vines in the hills above Occidental. Planted on sandy loam soil, the organically grown fruit is nurtured by moderately warm days and cool evenings, resulting in a richness balanced by lively acidity. Harvested in mid-September, grapes are gently whole cluster pressed, in keeping with our cellar custom. Moderate sugars and go through low and slow fermentations to reveal its vintage. Wines are bottled unfilltered and unfined. 

Radio-Coteau is a wine producer making single-vineyard wines from cool-climate coastal vineyards in Sonoma County and Anderson Valley.

Established in 2002, winety includes an estate vineyard in the hills above Occidental in the Sonoma Coast. In summer of 2012, Radio-Coteau acquired an historic 17ha Estate vineyard and ranch located on a ridgetop above the town of Occidental. Originally named Joseph Morelli & Sons before Prohibition, the Lemorel winery (as it was later known) dates back to 1892, when the first vines were planted. Situated 800 feet above sea level, the property is a diverse agroecosystem settled on prized Goldridge soil. It is this distinctive terroir that provides the platform for our non-interventionist winegrowing practices. Conservation and sustainability are core values, not just to protect these important ecosystems, but also to nurture and preserve the vitality of the farm. Radio-Coteau (rā’ dē ō – kō tō’) is an adjective. A French colloquial expression suggesting “word of mouth” and literal translation is broadcasting from the hillside which originated in Northern Rhone. Fine wine is grown in the vineyard, and the character is not only defined by the soil and the seasons, but also by the people who coax the story from the vines.
