Terms and Conditions
As a member, you agree to all terms and conditions of membership.
The Zoo Foundation Wine Club is operated by Specialty Wines NW, a licensed Oregon winery, under agreement with The Oregon Zoo Foundation. Credit card charges will appear as “Specialty Wines NW.”
Who Can Join
By becoming a member, you verify that you or the recipient of the club is at least 21 years of age. Due to system constraints, we are only able to have one name and one corresponding email on the membership; benefits are non-transferable. The Oregon Zoo Foundation Wine Club is available only to those with an Oregon shipping address at this time.
You will receive an email at least one week prior to each club shipment noting important dates and details of your shipment. It is your responsibility as the member to notify The Zoo Foundation Wine Club of any changes to credit card or billing/shipping address prior to the billing. Unfortunately, we are unable to make any changes after billing.
The club releases will be charged to the credit card on file four times per year (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer). It is your obligation to update your credit card information online or by phone 503-850-7755 or email firstname.lastname@example.org the billing date. In addition, any address changes must be made in writing to email@example.com or phone at least 5 days prior to this billing. Club wine purchases and shipping fees are non-refundable once they have been processed.
We have negotiated the lowest shipping costs available and are pleased to pass the savings on to our members. All wine shipments must be signed for by a person at least 21 years of age. A daytime delivery address, preferably a business address, is requested. Shipments are handled by FedEx and cannot be delivered to PO, FPO, APO or IPO boxes. Returned or refused shipments will incur additional fees. The Oregon Zoo Foundation Wine Club is not responsible for shipping charges incurred due to misdirected or returned shipments or changes made after the deadline. If a club shipment is returned for an incorrect address or three failed delivery attempts, you will be responsible for the additional cost of reshipping.
During times of inclement weather, extreme heat, or extreme cold, The Oregon Zoo Foundation Wine Club reserves the right to delay shipments until conditions improve. Please be advised that The Oregon Zoo Foundation Wine Club is not responsible for items damaged due to extreme weather conditions.
Winery Pick Up We do not offer this service right now, but hope to have a local pickup option available soon.
Substitutions While not every person likes every wine, every wine we choose for The Oregon Zoo Foundation Wine Club is of top quality. We choose only wines that are known throughout the Oregon wine industry for their high standards and delicious character. Wine club substitutions are politely declined.
You have the option to purchase additional bottles of the club wine selections that will ship at the same time as your wine club wines, or to buy other wines that may be available to include in your wine club shipment.
Holds and Cancellations You may place your membership “on hold” or cancel your membership with a written notice to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 5 days prior to a club billing date. All wine purchases and shipping fees are non-refundable after processing.
Exchanges for Damaged Bottles
You must contact Oregon Zoo Foundation Wine Club at 503-850-7755 or email@example.com within seventy-two hours of delivery to report broken or otherwise damaged products to request an exchange.
Wine offers, including Wine Club Selections, will generally be available for a fixed period of time, after which the offer is finished. While we don't routinely keep wines we've featured in stock, we do occasionally have extra bottles available. If you love a wine that was included with your shipment, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll let you know if we have some available.
