Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the difference between joining the Allocation List and registering an allocation request for a single wine?
A: The Allocation List is designed for our most loyal customers who want to receive a shipment of each new wine release. Each year, Allocation List members receive two shipments and are able to specify the amount of each wine they receive (minimum shipment is three bottles or one large-format bottle). The Allocation List guarantees access to the wine and provides multiple pricing discounts and other benefits. Those customers who do not wish to join the Allocation List may register a request for a single wine, although priority access will be given to Alloctation List members if there is not enough wine available for everyone.
Q: Why should I join the Boeschen Vineyards Allocation List?
A: The Boeschen Vineyards Allocation List is the only way to guarantee access to Boeschen Vineyards wines at the best possible price (all Allocation List shipments receive a 10% discount, and single-wine case shipments receive a 20% discount). Most years, the wines are fully allocated to our Allocation List members. Boeschen Vineyards also gives Allocation List members much more flexibility than most other wine clubs. You can determine the size of each shipment you wish to receive, and can continually adjust this allocation as your interests change.
Q: What if I decide I don't want to be a member anymore?
A: If you should decide to unsubscribe from the Allocation List, simply email us and let us know at any time, as long as it is at least four weeks prior to any scheduled shipment. We do ask for a commitment of at least two shipments.
Q: How do I pay for my wine shipments?
A: You will give us a valid credit card number at the time you register. We will charge your card for the cost of the wines and shipping at the time the wine is released. You will be notified in advance of each shipment (two shipments each year for Allocation List members). We ask that you keep us informed of any changes to your credit card or contact information.
Q: How much does it cost to join the Allocation List?
A: There are no fees to join the Boeschen Vineyards Allocation List. The only cost is what you pay for each release (two shipments each year). This will vary based on which wines are being released and shipping costs to your location.
Q: When do shipments go out?
A: Boeschen Vineyards wines are shipped upon release. Each year, our spring release includes our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Estate Sauvignon Blanc, and Katie Rosé, while our Carrera Estate Blend and Estate Petit Verdot is released in the fall. The Winchester Reserve has its own release in early November. We will, when necessary, take into account weather restrictions when timing our Allocation List shipments to avoid exposing the wines to excessive heat.
Q: Can I pick my wine up instead of having it shipped to me?
A: If you would rather pick up your wines at the winery (located in St. Helena, in Napa Valley), you can select that option when specifying your shipment information. We would love to meet you!
Q: Why can't you ship to my state?
A: Many states have legal restrictions that prevent us from shipping directly to customers in those locations. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions about shipping to your state.
