ACCESSING OUR SITE
INFORMATION ABOUT US
Wine for the World, Inc is registered in the state of Delaware and has a license to do business in the State of New York. Wine for the World is a licensed importer. Wine for the World sells wine to trade partners.
In an effort to make our wines accessible, Wine for the World products are available for sale through sellers that are licensed to sell alcoholic beverages (“Sellers”). As a Service to you, upon request we can direct you to Sellers through which you can place orders.
THE SALE OF WINE
Certain wines listed on our Site are available for purchase. You acknowledge and agree that Wine for the World does not sell, offer to sell, invite to sell, or solicit any sales of alcohol. In all instances, potential sales of alcohol are advertised, solicited, offered, accepted, made and delivered by sellers that are licensed to sell alcoholic beverages (“Sellers”). The Sellers on Wine for the World are retailers. In all instances, any solicitation, invitation, offer, advertisement or communication is void where prohibited by law. All wine sold using the Site may be sold and delivered only to a person who is 21 years of age or older. By placing an order request, you represent that: (1) you are 21 years of age or older; and (2) the person to whom any wine will be delivered is 21 years old of age or older. The products sold using the Site are sold by Sellers and are subject to their privacy and shipping policies. If you do not agree with these conditions of use please do not request permission to be connected to these Sellers through the Site. If you intentionally or unintentionally misrepresent your age in order to provide alcohol to a person under the age of 21, Wine for the World may prosecute you fully to the extent allowable by law.

In connection with each Transaction, you represent that you may purchase and receive the products ordered in compliance with all applicable laws, including without limitation the alcoholic beverage control laws of the jurisdiction in which you reside, and that such products will be used only in a lawful manner and will not be made available for re-sale.
Any prices listed in the Site are estimations only and Wine for the World does not guarantee or make any warranty as to the availability or price of any wine offered by any Seller.
