VINdependents who have not yet fulfilled their six-bottle annual commitment are invited to choose between three pre-configured shipments: one all-reds, one all-whites and one mixed. Members are of course also welcome to configure their own shipment, and can do so on our online order form. The preconfigured options are:
If you wish to receive the default mixed shipment, you need do nothing. If you prefer a different pre-configured shipment or a different ship date you can do so by contacting Wine Club Director Nicole Getty at 805.237.1231 x39 or email@example.com. If you wish to configure your own shipment, you can contact us or order online. If we do not hear from you by December 20th, we will assume that you would like the default shipment; this shipment will be charged the last week of December and shipped out the first week of January, 2012. Contact Wine Club Director Nicole Getty at 805.237.1231 x39 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about your shipment or membership.
