Purchasing and Shipping Wine Legally

Any wine sold to you by Pantheon Wine Shoppe, LLC., is sold in Illinois, and title passes to you, the buyer, in Illinois at the time of sale.  Pantheon Wine Shoppe, LLC ships to all 50 US states and the District of Columbia.  Please keep in mind, though, that many states, and the District of Columbia, have enacted laws that regulate inbound shipments of wine and other alcoholic beverages purchased in another state. Such shipments may be a crime unless a permit or license is obtained, but many laws and statutes make exception for wine purchased for personal consumption.  It is your responsibility to know your state’s current laws regarding inbound shipments of wine and other alcoholic beverages.  Pantheon Wine Shoppe, LLC is not responsible for shipments that are not received due to infractions of individual state laws.

Neither Pantheon Wine Shoppe, LLC.,  nor its agents can assume responsibility for any deterioration resulting from shipment, which includes, but is not limited to: scuffed labels, cracked wax capsules, or minor seepage.  Insurance will be automatically provided at a nominal charge, which will cover solely breakage or loss from time of purchase to the time of delivery.  Wines must be inspected by the Purchaser upon receipt and any loss or breakage must be noted on the Shipper’s documents.  Pantheon Wine Shoppe, LLC.,   must be notified of any breakage or loss claims within 24 hours of delivery.  Should this insurance coverage not be desired, a written waiver of insurance and any subsequent claims must be received prior to the shipment of the wines.  Without insurance, loss or damage due to any cause will be at the Purchaser’s risk.

All sales are made in Illinois.  Payment in full is due upon confirmation of orders.  Wines may be sold and delivered only to persons who are 21 years old.
