Terms & Conditions


Occasionally, our listed prices may be incorrect or the bottle size may be incorrect. For example a 750ml size may be incorrectly priced as a 375ml bottle. When such situations occur, The Saratoga Wine Exchange shall be held harmless for the error. We make every effort to make sure that our product database is accurate, however mistakes do happen. We will not honor an incorrect pricing. In all cases, the customer will be contacted before any charges are made to the credit card for a decision to proceed or not proceed with the order at the correct price.


All wine is sold in the State of New York, and the title passes to the buyer in New York. As such, the appropriate sales tax for the county of destination will be charged on all product shipped within New York state. On orders shipped to destinations outside New York state, no sales tax is charged with the exception of NH shipments that require 8% New Hampshire state tax.


If you're not happy with a purchase, we'll do everything we can to make you happy. We will gladly accept returns within 90 days of the delivery date that meet the following criteria.

We will always replace or refund a wine found to be "corked" once it has been returned and determined to be "corked,” however we cannot accept returns for sound wines that do not coincide with personal tastes. In the case of “corked” wines, we will replace or refund all unopened bottles and the first opened bottle. Please do not continue to open bottles of the same wine once one has been found faulty.

We ask our customers to acknowledge that wine is a living thing, easily bruised, damaged, or killed in a variety of ways. All wine sold by us is maintained at optimum conditions. We consider wine to be out of our control once it has been handed over to the shipper. We cannot be responsible for improper storage (storing on top of your refrigerator, in your car, or in your freezer, for example).

Know your palate: Older wines (ten years or more) may differ from their characteristics on release - and still be great wines. If you purchase older wines, be patient and allow the wine to open.

If you need to make a return, please contact info@saratogawine.com and we'll make the process easy for you..
