Residency will be determined by the Eligible Applicant or Member’s primary shipping address. It is the responsibility of the Eligible Applicant and/or Member to maintain a current primary shipping address on file with DAOU and to update Member’s primary shipping address and account accordingly.

For purposes of these Terms and Conditions, the “authorized account holder” for the email address is the natural person who is over the age of 21 and is assigned to the submitted email address by an internet provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.

4.    The Rewards Program is provided to individuals only. Corporations, associations, or other groups may not participate in the Rewards Program. It is fraudulent for any individual or company, association, or group to direct, encourage, or allow individuals to use a single account for the purpose of accumulating Points for combined use.

5.    If Member becomes aware of any fraudulent activity, including unauthorized use of Member account or benefits, Member must report the fraudulent activity to DAOU in writing to [email protected] as soon as possible but no later than seven calendar days after Member’s discovery of the fraudulent activity or misuse. DAOU reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without notice or liability to Member, to restrict, suspend and/or discontinue the Membership of any Member who DAOU believes has engaged in any fraudulent activity or has used the Rewards Program in a manner inconsistent with these Terms and Conditions or any federal, state, provincial, municipal, territorial or local laws, statutes or ordinances. In addition to discontinuance of Membership, DAOU shall have the right to take appropriate administrative and/or legal action, including criminal prosecution, as it deems necessary in its sole discretion.

6.    If Member cancels Member’s Membership, DAOU will pause Member’s Membership and Loyalty Club account for 24 months, or until Member rejoins the Rewards Program. During this time, Member’s Points will not be deleted unless Member deletes their account. After 24 months without an eligible Member purchase, DAOU will delete the account and Member’s Points will be permanently lost.

7.    Members who do not activate their Rewards Program account with an eligible purchase for 24 months are subject to deactivation and cancelation of accumulated Points and Rewards, in the sole discretion of DAOU. Rewards cannot be redeemed by Member after Member’s account has been deleted. After deactivation, Member is eligible, in the discretion of DAOU, to open a new account.

8.    DAOU may, at its discretion send correspondence to Member to remind Member of the Rewards Program’s Terms and Conditions, available Rewards, or the expiration of Points or Rewards. DAOU shall not be liable for any failure to do so, or for any incorrect, inaccurate, or failed communication with Member.

9.    Member is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of Member’s Rewards Program account and is encouraged to check the Rewards Program account regularly and to update the information associated with the account when necessary. Member is solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of the account, including without limitation, the password associated with Member’s account. Member is also responsible for maintaining Member’s current contact information and updating Member’s account profile through the online platform.

10. DAOU will not be responsible for any losses arising from any fraudulent and/or unauthorized use of Member’s account, or for any incorrect or inaccurate information supplied by Member while participating in the Rewards Program.

C.    Termination.

1.    Member may cancel his or her Membership at any time by contacting DAOU as described herein or by accessing Member’s account via the DAOU website.

2.    The Rewards Program has no termination date and may continue until DAOU decides to terminate the Rewards Program, which may occur at any time, for any or no reason, and with or without notice to Member. In the event of such termination and unless prohibited by law, Member will have 30 days from the Rewards Program’s termination to redeem any received Points, Rewards, or other benefits.

3.    DAOU reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to discontinue Membership for any Member who uses the Rewards Program in any manner inconsistent with the Terms and Conditions, or who violates or acts in any manner that is inconsistent with federal, state or local laws. If DAOU determines, in its sole discretion, that any Points or Rewards have been obtained in an impermissible manner, the Points and Rewards will be deemed to have been fraudulently obtained and, therefore, immediately void. The Membership of any Member attempting to cause any such sale, auction, barter, brokerage, purchase, or transfer may be terminated at any time, in DAOU’s sole discretion.

IV.           POINTS

A.    To receive Points, Member must meet all conditions described herein and make a qualified purchase (i) onsite at DAOU’s tasting room (2777 Hidden Mountain Rd, Paso Robles, CA 93446), (ii) online via the DAOU website, (iii) through the DAOU+ mobile app, (iv) via telephone or internet through DAOU inside sales, (v) through Member wine club allocations from DAOU (applicable only to scheduled allocations), or (vi) pursuant to a promotional offer or during specified promotional periods.

D.   The selection of items eligible for Points may vary by Eligible Jurisdiction. Points are awarded only if allowed by the laws of the Eligible Jurisdiction, and are void where prohibited by law. Points are subject to revocation at DAOU’s sole discretion.

E.    If Member fails to associate Member’s Rewards Program account number with eligible charges before the time that payment is tendered, no Points will be received on the purchase. DAOU reserves the right to decline any transaction, including the accrual of Points, that it suspects, in its sole discretion, may involve an individual under age 21, or is otherwise fraudulent or in violation of applicable law. DAOU may close Member Rewards Program accounts, and void all Points accrued.

F.    No Points will be received for taxes, container deposits, or purchases made with a gift card. If Member returns a purchase made with Member’s Rewards Program account, DAOU will deduct the Points that Member was awarded for that purchase.

G.   If Member believes the correct number of Points for eligible charges was not received, Member must submit a written request for a Points adjustment to [email protected], together with a legible copy of Member’s receipt, and Member’s name, account number, mailing address, email address, and telephone number. Failure to supply adequate documentation may result in denial of Points. Requests must be received by DAOU within 6 months from the date the eligible charges were incurred to receive consideration.

V.             REWARDS

A.    Points may not be purchased or redeemed for cash. Points have no cash value. Points are used only to determine Member’s qualification for different Rewards. To the extent a face or cash value is required, the value is $0.

IX.           ARBITRATION

READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH MEMBER CAN SEEK RELIEF UNDER THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

A.    Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in San Francisco, CA before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude the parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The Terms and Conditions and the rights of the parties hereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules. Notwithstanding the provision in the preceding sentence with respect to applicable substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the Terms and Conditions of this Program shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C., Secs. 1-16). The parties acknowledge that the Rewards Program evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce. In any arbitration arising out of or related to these Terms and Conditions, the arbitrator shall award to the prevailing party, if any, the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. If the arbitrator determines a party to be the prevailing party under circumstances where the prevailing party won on some but not all of the claims and counterclaims, the arbitrator may award the prevailing party an appropriate percentage of the costs and attorneys’ fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with the arbitration. The parties shall maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding and the award, including the hearing, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy, a judicial challenge to an award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by law or judicial decision.  

B.    ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN MEMBER’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS DAOU AGREES OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER MEMBERS. MEMBER AGREES THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, MEMBER AND DAOU EACH WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.

In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in San Francisco, California for such purpose.

To cancel a recurring payment through an app store, you must contact the appropriate app store directly and follow their subscription cancellation process. If you do not cancel you subscription prior to the commencement of a renewal period, you may be automatically charged for the next month. (Note. Deleting an account with DAOU+ will NOT automatically cancel any recurring monthly payment agreement you have with an app store).


If you cancel a subscription before the end of its term DAOU+ will be unable to offer a refund for any unexpired period of your subscription.


DAOU+ may change the prices charged for its subscription(s) from time to time. Any increase in the price of a subscription will only take effect at the next billing cycle/renewal.
