Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy explains how Averill Creek and its affiliated brands and companies (the “Company”) collect and use information when you use our websites, social media offerings, online community forums, or blogs (collectively referred to in this Policy as the “Sites”), visit our locations, purchase our products, or when you otherwise interact with us.

Please read the following to help you understand how we collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide to us. By using and/or browsing this site, you agree to this Privacy Policy, the terms of use and all applicable laws governing your use of the Sites. We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy and we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Sites to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

We are committed to protecting your privacy by employing commercially reasonable efforts in deploying technical and organizational security measures to prevent the loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or alteration of personal information and by complying with law.

This Privacy Policy does not apply, however, to Company employees, employment applicants, suppliers, distributors or trade contacts except when they are acting in a “customer” capacity, or to third-party sites linked from the Sites.

1. Collection of Personal Information

Information You Provide to Us

We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you create an account, visit our tasting rooms, subscribe to our wine clubs, purchase products, request customer support, access the Sites, or otherwise communicate with us either directly or through social media. The types of information we may collect include your username, password, email address, phone number, birthdate, mailing and billing addresses, credit card number, expiration date and CVV code, purchase history and any other information you choose to provide in interaction with our staff or the Sites.

When you post comments and images from your social media account(s) (including, but not limited to, Instagram and Facebook) with certain hashtags, “tag us”, or use the name of our businesses, depending upon your social media privacy settings, the image may be redisplayed on our sites. While you retain ownership of the image, using our designated hashtags, “tagging us”, or utilize the name of our businesses, gives us permission to display and re-display the image, which may contain information about you, and we may collect and use that information for marketing and research purposes.

In addition, we may receive certain categories of personal information listed above from sources other than you, such as from our business partners and third-party applications (including, but not limited to, Instagram and Facebook) that you use in conjunction with the Sites (e.g., for age-gating purposes).

This Privacy Policy does not cover the practices of these third-party social networks.
