    • All wines are inspected before departure from our cellars to ensure that older vintage wines are not leaking, ullage is acceptable, and labels are intact.
      Rueda Wine Co. cannot be held liable for refunds or the replacement of any wines judged spoiled, over-mature, cork-tainted or faulty in any way.
      In the case of couriering vintage wines, the liability falls on the customer once the bottle leaves our cellars.
    • The couriering of vintage wines is not recommended and the liability of the condition of the wines falls on the customer once the bottle leaves our cellars. We suggest using specialised packaging to maintain the correct temperature and act as an additional form of protection during transport.

Substitution of an attendee may be made at any time after payment. We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule an event due to low enrolment or other reasons beyond our control. If we have to cancel a tasting event, we will notify customers immediately and offer a full refund or the opportunity to reschedule.
