When will I receive my certificate?

Your certificate will be mailed to you within 2 weeks of your TagAVine Membership purchase. The beautiful Carta di Fabbriano is produced by Grafiche Federighi, a family owned and operated fine papery in Italy.

When will I receive my wine?

A licensed retailer will be in touch with you to notify you of payment required and anticipated ship dates. For your first order, you can choose to have your wines delivered within 30 days or wait until the next shipment time in the Spring. Your next purchase will be required in the Spring of 2015.   If you choose to purchase the wine vintages in 2014, you will be expected to purchase again each Spring beginning in 2015.

Is the wine really from my vine?

In order to collect enough grapes to create the wine, we harvest rows of vines together. Some of the wine is from your vine and some is from neighboring vines in the section of the Vineyard.

What will I receive in each wine shipment?

You’ll receive the bottles of wine you agreed to purchase based on the number of tagged varietals. i.e. 1 tag of Angelini Merlot per Amici equals 1 purchased bottle of Angelini Merlot per Amici wine. These wines will be tagged with your allocated tag certificate name and number. We will provide detailed tasting notes, Vineyard history, and suggested food pairings.

How long is the membership term?

Each membership is active indefinitely unless you forfeit your agreed upon purchase of wine. If you do not order the wine at the time of availability, you will no longer have a TagAVine membership. In a typical year wine orders will happen on an annual basis in the Spring which will depend on the varietal you choose.

  • Pergola Rosso
  • Sangiovese Rosato
  • Sangiovese
  • Sangiovese Riserva
  • Merlot

member.

What if the wine vintage is not sold in a particular year due to harvest issues?

We will kindly postpone required purchase to the next available vintage date. We may choose to offer you a different wine/vintage for you to purchase instead, this will be at your discretion (i.e. Sangiovese vs.Merlot) . Being a natural product, we cannot guarantee annual production due to circumstances beyond our control (weather conditions, etc.)
