Free Summer Wine Storage Policy
During the summer, we will store wine purchased from us at no cost in our temperature controlled facility. If you win an auction, you will receive an email invoice with instructions to checkout. During the checkout process you will be asked if you would like us to hold onto your wines during the summer. We will contact you in the fall to ship your wines. It's that simple!
Please note: during the summer, our shipping insurance does not cover heat damage on ground, 2-day or overnight shipments.

We work hard to ensure our sales and auctions are error free, but we do make mistakes. In the event that a wine is not as described or unavailable, we will promptly refund your payment (if it has been made).
JJ Buckley guarantees the wine will leave our facility in the condition described. If we shipped the wine for you, the wine is guaranteed to arrive in the condition described. If your wine is not in the condition described, simply contact us to arrange shipping back the bottles and a full refund. Please note: During summer months (June through September) spoilage in transit is not covered, EVEN if you had elected 2 Day or Overnight shipping.

We do not guarantee the quality of the wine in the bottles. Wine, especially older wine, is susecptible to age, spoilage, and heat damage. We do our best to describe the condition of the bottles when we inspect them, but do not guarantee the quality of the wine.
