Terms and conditions may change from time to time. It is the primary intent of this policy to protect our customers against any loss during shipment brought about by Venturi-Schulze, its employees or those entrusted to deliver its products and also to guarantee a full refund for advance tickets purchased for a Venturi-Schulze event that is cancelled for any reason.
REFUNDS FOR SHIPPED ITEMS:
If a purchased product is mailed or shipped and is lost in transit, Venturi-Schulze will replace the product on completion of a trace. If the product is no longer available, or if the purchaser requests, Venturi-Schulze will refund the full amount paid.
For mailed or shipped orders, a full refund will be given for any bottles broken in transit, as Venturi-Schulze takes full responsibility for safe packaging. Claims should be made within one week of receipt of product. If the purchaser prefers, Venturi-Schulze will replace such product at no cost, providing that it is still available.
When a product has been purchased and if a claim is made within 15 days of receipt of the product, Venturi-Schulze will give a full refund if unopened wine or Balsamic Vinegar is found to have defective packaging resulting in leaks. If Venturi-Schulze requests, the purchaser may be required to return product or packaging to Venturi-Schulze.
REFUNDS FOR EVENTS:
If a non-refundable deposit applies to purchase of event or accommodation tickets, this will be clearly stated in any advertising or description of the event/accommodation and in any confirmation sent to the purchaser.
A full refund, including any non-refundable deposit, will be given for tickets purchased for any event that is cancelled for any reason by Venturi-Schulze.
REFUNDS FOR FAULTY PRODUCTS:
Venturi-Schulze has no guarantee on quality, as this is subjective and dependent on conditions out of our control; however, if a product is deemed to be "off", Venturi-Schulze may offer replacement or refund if its own chemical and sensory analysis supports that opinion (after a suitable period of rest after shipping back) and if all the following conditions are met:
Venturi-Schulze is notified by phone or email within 24 hours of the bottle being opened. See the Contact Us page for address, phone and email information.
No more than 25% of the contents has been consumed.
The bottle is resealed, packed in a box with appropriate material to prevent breakage, and returned via Expedited Parcel Post within 2 days of opening, along with proof of purchase and name, address and phone number of the purchaser.
