You must be at least twenty-one (21) years of age to make a purchase on our Site. To verify that you are at least twenty-one (21) years of age, you will be required to enter your date of birth prior to completing a purchase on our Site.

2. WINESTYR SERVICES
Winestyr does not sell any of the goods and/or services ("Items") listed on our Site. Rather, our Site is simply a platform on which you may purchase Items directly from participating wineries. ALL ITEMS SOLD ON OUR SITE SOLD BY PARTICIPATING WINERIES. As such, each order placed on our Site is subject to acceptance by the winery or wineries selling the particular Item(s) for which the order was placed. Winestyr never takes legal title of any Items sold on our Site, and thus, legal title to the Item(s) transfers directly from winery to you on any purchase you make on our Site.
3. PRICING/PURCHASE CONDITIONS
Because all Items listed on our Site are sold by participating wineries, those wineries are solely responsible for determining the prices at which their Items are offered for sale, and may include special instructions and/or conditions regarding the sale of their Items. You are responsible for reading the full Item listing, including any special instructions and/or conditions the winery provides, before placing an order.
4. IN-PERSON PICKUP FROM WINERIES
Any Item(s) purchased through our Site may be picked up in person at the participating winery or wineries. For instructions on picking up your Item(s) in person, please contact the winery directly or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be refunded any and all shipping costs you paid in relation to the relevant order in the event you pick up your Item(s) in person at the winery or wineries.
5. MULTIPLE WINERIES ON ONE (1) ORDER
Any single order you place on our Site may include Items from multiple wineries. Although one order may include Items from multiple wineries, each winery must independently accept that portion of your order which pertains to their particular Items before a sale of those Items can occur. As such, when ordering from multiple wineries in a single order on our Site, some portions of your order may be accepted while other portions of your order may be rejected. Additionally, those wineries may accept or reject your order for their respective Items at different times. BY PLACING AN ORDER, YOU ARE COMMITTING TO BUY EACH ITEM LISTED IN YOUR ORDER, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY PORTIONS OF YOUR ORDER ARE REJECTED. Furthermore, Items ordered from separate wineries may be delivered separately EVEN THOUGH THOSE ITEMS MAY HAVE BEEN LISTED ON ONE (1) ORDER PLACED BY YOU ON OUR SITE. If you purchase Items from multiple wineries and request to pick up those Items in person, you will have to visit each winery in order to do so.
6. REJECTED ORDERS
Any order or portion of an order you place on our Site may be rejected by a winery for various reasons including, but not limited to, the product being out of stock. If your order, or any portion of your order is rejected, your credit or debit card will be automatically refunded for the entire amount it was charged for the order, or portion of the order, that was rejected. You will also receive an email notification for any order or portion of your order that was rejected. Because an order may be rejected for a number of different reasons, this notification email may not contain a complete explanation as to why your order was rejected. For more information on why your order was rejected, please email us at email@example.com and we will attempt to answer your question.
7. RELIANCE ON PARTICIPATING WINERIES
