Email us at tourandtasting@clinecellars.com and we’ll fix it for you.

I have a coupon, where do I enter it?

On the checkout page at the very top, you’ll see a yellow banner reading “Have a coupon? Click here to enter your code”.

I need to change my address/email, payment information, password

Once logged in, under My Account (top right of the page), you’ll find “Account Management”, where you can edit all the information associated with your profile. Contact, Shipping, and Payment are your personal profile and do not affect your membership information. The “Club Membership” tab will allow you to edit any and all information associated with your membership (preferences, email, shipping address, payment information, etc.).

My order is a gift!

Make sure to check the “Gift Order” box under the billing information on the checkout page. The packing slip for gift orders will not include pricing. You can also add a gift note. If the order needs to arrive by a certain date or if you have any special instructions/questions, please enter it under “Order Notes” and we’ll be in touch if follow up is needed.

I have a Gift Card – can I use it online?

Yes, you can enter it at checkout (bottom right portion of the page). Please note - to use it online, the cart amount needs to be lower than the value of the gift card. You can check your gift card’s balance on the checkout page. For larger orders requiring split payment, contact us at (707) 940-4044 or tourandtasting@clinecellars.com. A split payment function for the web will be added soon. Stay tuned!

Can I use my gift card to pay for tastings? Can I use it at your sister properties?

Yes! You can use the gift card to pay for wine, food, merchandise, or tastings when onsite. Balance can be redeemed with Cline Family Cellars, Jacuzzi Family Vineyards, and The Olive Press – onsite, online, or via phone.

I can’t find the wine I’m looking for

Any wines we currently carry can be found under the “Wine Shop” -> “Collections” -> “All wines” category. You can also use the “Search products” tool on the top right of the page. Some items are found only in the wild, like our Farmhouse brand! You can see if a retail store carries a specific product near you by using the “Where to buy tool” at the bottom of our homepage. Simply enter your zip code, radius, and brand you’re interested in. If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, email us at website-general@clinecellars.com.

Do you ship internationally?

Not at this time…. but stay tuned!!!!

SHIPPING FAQ:

Where’s my tracking number/package?

For UPS & FedEx packages, once the order leaves our warehouse, tracking information is sent to the email associated with the shipping address. For states shipping via VinGo (NJ, LA, OH), tracking is sent once package reaches the state and is en route to your address. Please review our shipping policy page for additional information: https://clinecellars.com/pages/shipping-policy.

My package was damaged, what do I do?

Contact us at tourandtasting@clinecellars.com (general public) or pendulumclub@clinecellars.com (Club members) and we’ll assist with the next steps.

I won’t be home to receive my package. What can I do?

Carrier will attempt 3 deliveries. After 3 failed attempts, the package will come back to us and we’ll contact you before reshipping for a fee. Best if you can advise us of change of address/vacation before the package is en route. If already en route, we may not be able to reroute, but will certainly try to help. You can also sign up for UPS My Choice account (free), which gives you more direct control of rerouting or hold at facility options. Learn more here: https://www.ups.com/us/en/services/tracking/mychoi....

What are the best practices to ensure I get my packages?

Keep your profile up to date, make any changes timely and before packages ship out, use a business address where someone over 21 will always be available to sign for the package. P.O. boxes are not allowed and signature is always required to receive a package containing wine.

I entered the incorrect shipping address on my order, can I change it?

Yes, please email us promptly at tourandtasting@clinecellars.com (general public) or pendulumclub@clinecellars.com (Club members) and we’ll fix it for you

Should I select expedited shipping/temperature-controlled service?

Expedited shipping is strongly advised during summer or winter months, when extreme temperatures in your state or en route can damage the wine. Please review our shipping policies carefully before selecting the best service for your order.

O.M.G. the shipping fees are killing me!

We hear ya. Us too! We’re doing our best to make it more affordable, across the board and especially for our members. We’re doing more and more promotions to help and slicing the pricing on expedited shipping during hot and cold months to protect your wine. Make sure you’re subscribed to take advantage of all the savings!
