Stop! Market does not replace corky wine

Stop! Market does not replace corky wine. Actually, they claim they doesn't accept any wine back.
They have Valbuena and Tignanello on shelves, like it was real wine store, they even have a person
who is responsible for wine department, but they doesn't replace corky wine.

If you have a problem with a retailer, your choice is not to purchase there again, or tell the management about the problem, find an acceptable solution, and then purchase there again.

If you purchased a wine made in Israel by one of our many wineries, just call the winery, explain the problem, and they will almost certainly send you a replacement bottle. This has happened to me several times. The grocery stores that have wine departments, generally are ignorant, non-consumer oriented, and are just ornery. If you have purchased an imported wine, well,,,,,,,good luck. My advice is stick to our wines of Israel. IMHO, they are tough to beat and there is such a variety, that they can satisfy just about any taste.

Shabat Shalom to all.

It feels good to be back after an absence of more than half a year. :D

No influence at all, just happen to chat with the store manager weekly.

Daniel,
You can't be serious bout that. I volunteer to check if the aforementioned Valbuena and Tignanello are not corky too. Anytime. :lol:

It is so dumb not to replace the bottle for you. I'm glad reasonable minds prevailed.

And I think that it is fair game to post the name of the merchant on this forum provided that you have exhausted all reasonable avenues to obtain a replacement, including warning the merchant that you are prepared to post your experience on this forum.
