What is a custom etched wine bottle?
Etched wine bottles are a unique and personalized keepsake. Carefully hand-made by our team of skilled artisans, each bottle is an individualized work of art. The process of creating your one-of-a-kind gift starts with the selection of a great wine and an outstanding design. Your personalized text makes your selections truly unique and memorable. After we receive your order, we take your selected design and personalized text and imprint it to a stencil-like material called a mask. We remove one or more of the labels from the bottle of your choice and apply the mask. The bottle is then sand carved (similar to sand blasting) in a highly specialized process to create a deep etched recess. Your bottle is then hand-painted by our team of talented artists. Finally we perform a quality check, carefully pack your bottle and send it on it’s way.
What if I don’t want to customize the bottle?
No problem. Most of our designs look great without any personalization. When in the customize page, simply leave the personalization blank. Sorry but there is no discount for non-personalized bottles/orders. All orders are custom-made to your specifications. We do not pre-etch any products.
How do I include a gift message with my order?
In most cases your customized messages is your message. Isn’t that why you wanted a customized bottle in the first place? If you desire to include a message, we offer the option of including a gift card during the process for an additional cost.
I don’t know anything about wine. How do I pick a wine?
Everyone’s tastes vary, so choose what you like. If you are not sure what you like or are not familiar with the wine selections we offer, we recommend choosing one of our private label selections. We carefully select all our wines for flavor and value, so you can be assured you’re getting a great wine at a terrific value. In actuality, we find that most recipients of custom etched bottles value the bottle so much the wine is not even consumed.
What is the Alcohol Content of Non-Alcoholic Wines?
There is a trace amount of alcohol in our non-alcoholic products. The FDA requires that all non-alcoholic beverages contain less than one half of one percent of alcohol per volume. Our products conform to that standard.
What is the turnaround time?
We offer the fastest processing time possible. Most orders are created and shipped within 24-48 business hours. Shipping times will vary depending on your location. We ship from Southern California, so shipping times to the East Coast are expected to take up to 5 business days. If you require expedited delivery, you must select a faster shipping method (additional fees apply).
Where Do We Ship?
We ship to most states and localities within the United States. However, each state has its own unique laws concerning alcohol sales. Some states prohibit out-of-state retailers from shipping wine to residents of their state. We ask you to identify the “ship to” state at the beginning of the ordering process to alert you if there is a restriction to your area. In that case we recommend you purchase non-alcoholic products or ship to another location if that is an option. Sorry, but we do no ship internationally at this time. We also must ship to a physical locations, and therefore cannot not ship to P.O. boxes.
