How do I purchase wine from Quigley Fine Wines?
Wines are purchased directly from your personal wine consultant.

What is a wine consultant and what are the advantages of working with one?
A wine consultant is a professional with a deep knowledge of the wine world including regions, styles and varietals. Our wine consultants work one-on-one with you around your palate and then source wines for you accordingly. They take the guesswork out of your wine buying, provide exclusive access to exceptional wines and help you explore the vast world of wine without risk. Best of all, they make the wine buying experience fun and educational.

Am I required to purchase wine monthly?
No, you purchase wines at your leisure and pace. Your consultant calls you only when the right wine(s) for your palate enter the inventory and provides you with all the details about the winemaker and the wine. It is your option whether or not you purchase the wine(s).

Why can't I purchase wine directly from the Quigley Fine Wines website?
Our inventory is constantly changing with new wines entering and old wines selling out almost daily. We feel that purchasing wines from a website also takes the human element out of the experience, which is never what wine should be about. Your consultant tells you the stories behind each of our winemakers and wines and works with you to ensure that every wine sourced from our company is the right wine for you. Your consultant also serves as your personal guide to help you explore the world of wine beyond your existing scope of regions and varietals.

Please note: Quigley Fine Wines occasionally offers specials that can be purchased directly from the website, but these specials are for first-time buyers only.

What makes Quigley Fine Wines different than other wine consulting firms and direct importers?
Our wine consultants are knowledgeable, passionate and invested. Their number one goal is not to "sell" wine. Instead they hope to form lasting relationships to help you better explore the wine world, without guess work and more importantly, without pretension.

Unlike most importers that bring wines into the country produced in case lots of 10,000 or more, our wines are truly small production, artisan wines sourced from winemakers committed to sustainable practices. Approximately 95 percent of the wines we import are produced in lots of fewer than 1,000 cases with some production sizes as small as one barrel (25 cases). This also applies to our domestic wines. All of our wines are exclusive to our company; none are available in any retail shop in the United States. Quigley Fine Wines has built a reputation of discovering rising stars before they hit the world stage including winemakers Carmelo Rodero and Bric Cenciurio.

To what states can Quigley Fine Wines ship?
Quigley Fine Wines can ship to every state with the exception of Utah, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, South Dakota and Kentucky.

How many Wineries does Quigley Fine Wines work with?

What is Quigley Fine Wines client satisfaction policy?
It is our goal to develop strong, trusting relationships with our clients. We know that you have many options when it comes to buying your wine, so in an effort to make sure you are always happy with our selections and our service, we will happily offer an exchange if you receive a wine that does not suit your palate.

That being said, wine can often "turn" or become spoiled if not stored properly, so we do offer a time limit on this policy as we have no way of knowing how a wine is cared for once it leaves our refrigerated wine warehouse. Please let us know within 30 days of receiving your order if you are unsatisfied with the wine. Returns and exchanges will not be granted if beyond the 30 day period. Thank you for understanding.
