FAQ

General

What is MYSA Natural Wine?

We’re a natural wine ecommerce platform and wine club that connects consumers with a unique selection of natural wines!

Learn more about us.

Are all the wines on your site natural?

Yes, always. We only market small growers, that use low-intervention farming and cellar practices, are organic/biodynamic, use minimal or no sulfites, and who vinify via spontaneous fermentation with native yeast. For more information on how we define natural wine, check out our guide on “What Is Natural Wine”.

If you're shopping on our ecommerce platform check out our filters on the left! You can filter by sulfite levels, designations like biodynamic or organic, or even our "funk meter"!

Shipping

What are the shipping costs?

Licensed retailers and their staff are responsible for packing and delivering or shipping all orders received through MYSA Natural Wine. A flat rate price is charged per box shipped. Exact costs will be noted in your cart before checkout.

Wine Club orders will always ship for free!

Where do you ship to?

Our retail partners ship to all but the following states: AK, HI, UT, KY, AL, MS.

Note: Our retail partners reserve the right to change this list at any time, and if this happens you will be notified that your order was canceled and issued a refund.

How long will it take to get my order?

Wines are shipped within 1-3 business days after your order.

Shipping times vary, but are typically 2-5 business days depending on the location in the US. You will get tracking information in your confirmation email after the label is printed. Please note that the delivery date is an estimate, and may change based on factors out of our control.

Note: Due to COVID-19, our retailers and shipping partners are seeing extra pressure on their distribution network. Most orders placed during the business week are planned to ship within 1-3 days of ordering. All weekend orders will begin processing on Monday, and it may take 1-3 business days to ship as well.

What shipping carriers do you use?

As it is the responsibility of the retailer to choose the delivery provider they use, delivery providers vary, but may include FedEx or UPS.

Do I need to be there to sign?

Someone 21 or older must be present to accept and sign for the wine. It is the responsibility of the retailer and any delivery provider they use to verify identification and age, and to determine whether it is otherwise safe and appropriate to furnish you with alcohol. They may require a valid form of photo identification with birthdate and a signed acknowledgment confirming
acceptance at the time of pick-up or delivery. If they cannot verify your age or identity, if you appear intoxicated, or if the situation is otherwise unsafe or inappropriate, they may refuse to furnish you with alcohol. Alcohol cannot be left unattended.

If you are unable to collect your wine and it comes back to us we will charge a reshipping fee equivalent to the standard shipping price based on the number of bottles purchased, to cover the cost of the wine shipping back to our warehouse. These fees are as follows:

  • 1-3 bottles: $14.95
  • 4-6 bottles: $24.95
  • 7-9 bottles: $34.95
  • 10-12 bottles: $39.95
  • 13+ bottles: $44.95

Do you ship wine in the summer?

Our goal is to ensure that every package that gets shipped is delivered quickly and in perfect condition.

It is extremely rare that wines arrive heat or cold damaged. However, it can happen, particularly when working with wines with no additives (but for maybe a small dose of sulfur). Evidence of weather-related damage may include protruding corks, seepage, etc. 

In inclement weather (i.e. extreme heat or extreme cold), we recommend delaying your purchase until the weather cools down in your area. If there is inclement weather in our warehouse location, we will delay shipping until the weather is more favorable for shipping wine.

We do offer the following options for customers who wish to take extra precautions for the shipment of their product:

  • Expedited shipping - please choose "Next-Day PM" as a shipping option if you would prefer your wine to be delivered via air rather than trucked. This greatly reduces the amount of time in transit and is the best option for those wishing to minimize risk of damage.
  • Ice packs - we can add two ice packs to your package for an additional $5 fee. Please note that ice packs do warm up quickly and will not be cold on delivery. They simply cool down the bottles for transit and help insulate the box.

If there is visible evidence of weather-related damage as specified above, please reach out to us at hello@mysa.wine and we will work with you to get your issue resolved as quickly as possible.

Please note that the customer assumes all risk of the product at purchase. We are not a shipping company and have about as much control over FedEx/UPS as you do. If you are concerned about weather-related damage, our first recommendation is always going to be to delay your purchase until your are more comfortable with the temps in your area.

How does expedited shipping work?

With expedited shipping your wines will be shipped with ice packs via FedEx Next-Day PM on a plane to the closest hub where it will be delivered via a final mile delivery truck. NOTE: Expedited shipping does not deliver on weekends, and does not include processing time. 

Wine Club

Tell me about the wine club!

Our Natural Wine Club is a way for us to curate our favorite wines and share them with you on a regular basis. It’s cheaper than buying directly on the ecommerce platform, there are ZERO shipping costs, and you get a couple VIP benefits, too! You can choose between 3, 6, or 12 bottles monthly, every two months, or every three months. NEW! We also have a red only and orange only club with 4 bottles!

Do you provide food pairings?

Yes, we do! Every month we curate a custom Wine Club web page with video tasting notes, text information on each wine, pairing recommendations, and much more! Each wine comes with information about the wines, serving temperature, the producer, the region, and our favorite food pairings.

This wine is delicious! Can I get more?

Yes! Most of the wines included in club boxes are available on the ecommerce platform as well (some limited-run wines are club only). 

Gifting

I want to add a gift note, can I do that?

Yes! We are able to add gift notes to the packing slip. Just add the note to the Special Instructions section in your cart or send an email to hello@mysa.wine immediately after ordering!

How do gift cards work?

You can purchase a gift card like any other product! There are no fees or shipping involved as it will be delivered to you by email. Once your order has processed you will find a link that leads to a gift card page that has the amount and code your friend should use to redeem it!
