International Popular Wine

We are excited to introduce International Popular Wine, a collaboration between Primal Wine and winemakers from around the world.

Each winemaker is free to experiment with new techniques and new blends. We aim to release high-quality wine while ensuring that everyone in the process is treated and paid fairly. Most importantly, International Popular Wine is not a private label, but a collaboration with winemaker friends aimed at showcasing their talent.

The Producer: Purity Wine

Purity Wine is the brainchild of Noel Diaz and this is his story as told by the man himself.

"After working in restaurants for almost 20 years, and having passed through almost every position in the front of the house, I found myself gravitating more and more towards wine… A little over nine years ago, just before the birth of my first child, I was invited to take the Wine & Spirits Education Trust level 3 course. The class was a great experience and became a pivotal point for me. About a year later I was invited to attend the level 1 course of the Court of Master Sommeliers' program. This eventually led me to study for and pass the Certified exam in 2011.

At about this time, I was running a wine program for a local Italian restaurant. My employer asked that I look for a wine for a private label he wanted to incorporate into our beverage program. In doing this, and dealing with all the inherent legal regulations, I began to see a path towards production. I started reading everything I could about the science of wine and Began asking every winemaker who came into the restaurant how they did what they did.

By 2012, I was searching out a winemaking space and getting licensed. 2013 was my first year as a winemaker, and ever since, I’ve tried to build on the previous year’s experiences. As of 2016 all of the fruit I source is grown organically, and as of 2017 I’ve entered into a lease to farm a vineyard in Calaveras County."

The Region: Sonoma & Nevada County

 

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.
