Product Description

The Wine: Plastic Stars Paper Moons 2020

Stagiaire Wine Plastic Stars Paper Moons in the words of winemaker Brent Mayeaux: "Viognier from Cooper Garrod Vineyards in the Santa Cruz mountains over Saratoga just below the iconic Mount Eden Vineyards. Dry-farmed and organic since planting in 1998 on gravel soils at 800ft. Less than an hour from the winery, but I was so exhausted by this point that I couldn't make the drive without pulling over multiple times to stretch my legs and keep from falling asleep. I parked the trailer when I finally arrived and slept for another hour until the sun was up and I started picking with their crew (who were amazing and super nice and we picked the fruit perfectly clean). I pressed a bit harder here because I don't mind more phenolics from varieties like viognier and was hoping to get more of the orange marmalade and florals out of it. Aged in neutral oak. For everyone with a floral fixation. Bottled straight from barrel."

Shipping & Returns

Stress Free Shipping

At Primal Wine we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material.

Re-shipping

If a package gets returned to us after three failed delivery attempts, we can only re-ship the wine upon payment of a re-shipping fee. Shipping wine is extremely expensive, we are sorry about this, but we have no other choice. Please make sure there's always someone at the address you enter as your shipping address.

Important Compliance Requirements

UPS and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older.

Important COVID Update

UPS and FedEx declared that in order to protect their workers and customers, they no longer require a signature on delivery. This does not mean they will drop a wine box at your door. UPS delivery workers will make sure the person receiving the wine is 21 years or older, and will ask for his/her name - only then do they deliver the package.

Shipping Rates and Options

An important premise: wine bottles are heavy – about 3 pounds each – and shipping is expensive! Primal Wine is not backed by venture capital money – we proudly are a mom and pop independent online store – and we must charge shipping on all orders, otherwise we wouldn’t be in business. However, we try our best to offer you very competitive shipping rates.

Return Policy

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us at (424) 414-2040 or via e-mail at hello@primalwine.com between 9 am and 5 pm Pacific Standard Time, Monday through Sunday, we would like to understand and try to solve your concerns.

We may make arrangements for a return and refund if appropriate, and only after we receive unopened products back to our warehouse.
