Frequently Asked Questions

Does each participant need to buy their own ticket?

No, the tickets are purchased by household.  So, if you have 4 people that are over the age of 21 that live under the same roof who want to participate, you just pay for the one ticket and share the contents of the box.

Is there a deadline to register for the event?

Yes, there is.  The last day to purchase your tickets to ensure that you get your box delivered in time is July 28th.

How do I log in for the event?

You will be emailed an event link prior to the event that will come with instructions on how to log in.

Can you ship anywhere?

Due to state and federal regulations, our wine can only be delivered to CA, CT, DC, FL, MA, MN, MO, NJ, NY, NC, SC, TX. Please inquire regarding your state shipping destination. We are adding new states regularly. Apologies as we are unable to ship orders outside the U.S.

How do you ship the wine?

The wines will be packaged with pairing suggestions and notes, information about ACLD and some snacks to pair with the wines.  They will be shipped in a sturdy box via courier to the tri-state area or by air to states outside the tri-state area.

Do I need to be home to receive my box for the event?

Yes, to receive the delivery someone 21 or older needs to be home and show proper identification when the courier arrives with your box of bubbly. They will make up to three attempts and then will return it to the winery and we will contact you about delivery.

Can you ship a bottle of wine to me in NY and the other bottles elsewhere?

Only the Sommelier and Jeroboam Sponsorships allow you to split the wines as indicated between households and ship elsewhere.

Is my ticket tax deductible?

Yes. Part of your ticket cost is tax deductible. $115 of the Bubbly ticket / $190 of the Magnum ticket / $510 of the Sommelier Sponsorship / $640 of the Jeroboam Sponsorship is deductible.

Will the event be live?

Yes. Our host will show a brief presentation and then the “Wine Guys” from Sparkling Pointe will be live from the Vineyards conducting the wine tasting, talking about Sparkling Pointe and answering any questions you may have.

Is there anything I need to do to prepare for the wine tasting?

Make sure that you receive your box prior to the event. If you don’t have it a few days before, please contact us. The best way to reach us is to email us at angstreichh@acld.org.

There will be a suggested list of foods that you may want to get to pair with the wines for that evening – cheeses and other snacks.  So, make sure you open your box when you receive it so you can check out the pairing suggestions to serve with your wines.

Keep an eye out for an email with login info, and then sit back and relax and enjoy this unique experience with ACLD and Sparkling Pointe Vineyards and Winery.
