NotSoldinDC.com (NSDC) is a marketing website that presents wines for sale and shipping through MetroWines, LLC, at MetroWinesAsheville.com (MWA). MWA is a licensed wine retailer and wine shipper pursuant to the laws of The State of North Carolina. Any reference to NSDC necessarily incorporates MWA.

We at MWA are working very hard to make great wines imported by North Carolina importers available to retail customers.

MWA is organized and incorporated as a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) in the State of North Carolina and is licensed by North Carolina as a Wine Retailer and Wine Shipper which allows MWA to ship inside the State of North Carolina and to any jurisdictions in the United States that allow wine to be shipped inside their borders.

Product: The State of North Carolina is home to many small import companies that seek out quality wines by smaller producers in this country and around the world. Because the import companies are small and often family owned operations, they may or may not have distributors around the country. We at MWA through our marketing site NotSoldinDC.com are making these great but limited distribution wines available to retail customers in the District of Columbia and to any other jurisdictions that allow shipping into their borders. MWA takes all necessary and appropriate actions to determine and insure that our product descriptions are accurate. But while we work hard to be completely accurate, we cannot guarantee that the information provided to us by any third party is truthful or accurate. If you find that a product is not as described, your remedy is set forth in our Shipping Policy on this website.

There is no SALES tax on purchases or shipping to retail customers outside North Carolina. Customers inside North Carolina are charged applicable sales tax.

Shipping, Product Satisfaction and Loss: MWA takes orders over the NSDC website and fills those orders by shipping only, pursuant to our Shipping Policy, inside and outside North Carolina to jurisdictions that allow wine to be shipped inside their borders.
