How do you communicate with me about my wine club?
All communication about your membership is conducted via email. Please make sure we have your correct email address on file as this is how we notify we you about upcoming orders, charges, shipping dates, and more. Please visit this page, Manage Membership, or contact our Wine Club Manager to ensure we have your correct contact information on file.
Can I switch from one club to another?
Yes, if you are currently active in a club and want to change to another club you may do so! Please contact us at (231) 223-9303 ext 3 to change your club. There is no charge to change clubs!
What happens if I decide to cancel?
As membership benefits begin immediately (including bottle discounts, discounted tastings, etc), members wishing to cancel their membership before their second shipment will be charged a $50 cancellation fee. Shipments processed prior to the cancellation date are nonrefundable, even if not yet received. Once the membership is cancelled, all membership benefits will end.
After you receive your second shipment you may cancel at any time with no cancellation fees by calling (231) 223-9303 ext 3 or emailing us.
Can I choose what wines I would like in my shipment?
In our Select Club you may choose the wines you would like from a list of available wines provided at least one month before the order is scheduled. In our Classic and Signature Clubs we do not accept substitutions or custom orders.
What if I can't be home for the delivery - can you ship to my place of work?
Yes. If possible, Brys Estate recommends shipping to a business address for prompt delivery. Club orders may also be sent to a UPS retail store for convenient pickup. UPS cannot deliver wine to PO boxes nor will UPS leave packages on the doorstop, even if the recipient has left a note with this request. All shipments must be signed for by someone 21 years or older.
What happens if I miss the delivery and the package is returned to the winery?
UPS will attempt to deliver the package three times. After the third failed attempt the order will be returned to the winery. You have the option to have the package held for pick up or reshipped for an additional fee.
What do I do if I need to reroute the package after it has already been sent?
Once your order has been processed and a change of address is required while in route, a reroute charge of $20.00 will be applied to the order. Please contact UPS or our Wine Club Manager for assistance in rerouting your order.
What happens if I am charged for the wine but I don't want it?
If you wish to cancel your membership and not receive the order, please contact us prior to us charging your account. Shipments processed prior to the cancellation date are nonrefundable, even if not yet received.
Can I switch how I receive my club?
Yes. If you need to change from pickup to shipping, or vice versa, please contact the Wine Club Manager before your order is charged.
Can I give a wine club membership as a gift?
Yes. Please call us at (231) 223-9303 ext. 3. if you wish to do so.
