When does Bottle Bracket ship?

Bottle Bracket ships on the first of April, June, August, October, December and February. Our first shipment will be to our California members only on April 1st.

Can I split the payment of my membership with my friends who play?

If you sign up for Bottle Bracket and want to split the payment with friends, you can send your friends an easy Venmo invite. You'll be prompted to do so when you sign up for your first shipment, and then every three months, we'll send you an email with a link when we ship your wine.

What happens if my wine is damaged during shipment?

All of our wine shipments are fully insured so if any of your wine is damaged, we'll resend you a new shipment on us! Just send us an email at info@bottlebracket.com.

Can I buy the Bottle Bracket game board only?

For now, we only offer Bottle Bracket as a subscription service to our wine club. However, your membership can be cancelled anytime; just send us an email requesting to do so at info@bottlebracket.com. We also plan to offer gift codes for one-time Bottle Bracket shipments so that you can easily gift Bottle Bracket to friends and family for holidays, weddings and birthdays.

What is a Bottle Bracket profile?

Every person who plays Bottle Bracket, whether they are a member who pays for and receives the wine, or just plays the game, should create a Bottle Bracket profile (coming to the site in April!). Your Bottle Bracket profile tracks your scores and your favorite wines from each game. It also allows you to see what other wines Bottle Bracket members are enjoying the most!

Can I buy more of the wines that I loved playing with?

Yes; you can find all of the wines you have played with in our Bottle Bracket wine store Also, the more often you insert your scores, the more discounts we'll send you to our Bottle Bracket wine shop!
