Title on all wine passes to the buyer at the time of purchase in the state of California. If you require that your wine be shipped, you authorize Bay Grape LLC to engage a common carrier to deliver the wine on your behalf. IF YOU CHOOSE TO SHIP YOUR WINE TO A NON-RECIPROCAL STATE, YOU ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR COMPLYING WITH YOUR STATE'S LAWS REGARDING ALCOHOL SHIPMENTS.
You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages from Bay Grape LLC. Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an "Adult Signature Required" sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that you will have to be present at the time of delivery.
Because we have no control over the temperature conditions at any 3rd party carriers' warehouses, we always attempt to deliver wines to our 3rd party carrier at the beginning of each week so that you can receive your wine before the weekend. As a result, your wine may not be delivered to our 3rd party carrier the day that you place your order. Please understand that during business hours, your orders are immediately packaged and scheduled for delivery, but may be delayed until ideal conditions for shipment arise. You are reminded that various states impose limitations on the quantity of alcoholic beverages which may be purchased and brought into their jurisdiction without requiring the purchaser, the seller or the shipper to possess certain licenses or permits. Bay Grape LLC does NOT, as a condition of sale, assume any obligation nor bear any responsibility whatsoever for applying for or obtaining any such permits or licenses. Therefore, you are strongly advised to investigate such limitations and to determine the manner in which alcoholic beverages may lawfully be brought into states other than California. You are responsible for all applicable excise, use and sales taxes due to your state related to the purchase of any taxable goods.
Bay Grape LLC makes no representation to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import wines into any state outside of California. The Buyer is solely responsible for the shipment of wines and is responsible for any loss or damage to goods once they have left our premises. By placing an order, you authorize Bay Grape LLC to act on your behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver your order to you.
Faccia di Vino Lambrusco Modena NV
Region: Emilia-Romagna, Italy
We could write to you for pages about what we’ve learned lately about glass bottle recycling in the
United States. It’s a manifesto, and it involves major cringes, like: Did you know? Wine bottle labels are
not recyclable; neither are capsules; both must be manually removed at recycling facilities. Glass is the
heaviest packaging to ship, resulting in the greatest carbon footprint via transportation. Large wineries
often send entire pallets of brand new, never-used bottles to be recycled because they were the wrong
shape or there wasn’t space at the winery to store them until they could be used next year. With all of
this in mind, we’ve begun putting extra effort into sourcing and selling wines that are mindful of all of
this and making dents in improving our industry’s sustainability. Enter: Faccia di Vino.
Faccia di Vino’s glass bottles are specifically chosen because they’re clear, lighter weight, and made
entirely from recycled glass. The label, cork, and box are also entirely made from recycled materials and
are eco-friendly certified. The capsule? It’s PVC-free and biodegradable. The wine itself? It’s certified
organic, grown and made by women, and from a farm practicing circular farming to reuse, repurpose or
recycle all materials—oh, and also undergoing 100% solar panel conversion.
OH! And then, it’s also stupid tasty, with that perfect-for-every-occasion Lambrusco signature
cold/red/bubbly profile. The clone of Lambrusco grape used here is Sorbara, which is Lambrusco’s
lightest-skinned version, so the wine borders on dark-rosé/light-red, making it a go-to for almost any
occasion you could think of. We can’t help but quote the winemaker, Coly Den Haan (who also owns the
amazing Vinovore wine shops dedicated exclusively to women-made wines), when she says, “You won’t
know if you want to drink it or pour it all over your face.”
