(b) Such unsalable wine which requires reconditioning or destruction shall be returned by the wine distributor to the domestic winery which manufactured or produced the same, or to the importer who imported such wine. When wine which has been returned to a domestic winery by any person for reconditioning or destruction has been assembled at the winery, a complete inventory in duplicate of unsalable wine shall be filed with the board by the winery with a request that inspection be made of the returned wine before the reconditioning process or destruction is started. When wine has been returned by the distributor to the importer who imported such wine, a complete inventory of said wine shall be filed in duplicate with the board by the importer with a request that inspection be made of the returned wine before the wine is destroyed or returned to the out-of-state manufacturer.
(c) Wine which is not in a salable condition and has been returned to a domestic winery or importer by a distributor may be replaced by the supplier with an identical quantity, type, and brand of wine: Provided, That if the brand of wine is not presently in the winery or importer's stock and is not available to the supplier in the immediate future, a cash refund or credit may be made to the distributor by the supplier. Credit extended for the return of product should be noted on a separate document from the original invoice. Except as provided herein, no other adjustment, by way of a cash refund or otherwise, shall be made by the winery or wine distributor.
(2) Wine may be returned by a retail licensee or by a governmental agency who has seized the same to the wine distributor selling such wine in the event the retailer goes out of the business of selling wine at retail or has their license changed to a wine restricted license, and in such case a cash refund may be made upon return of the wine, provided that consent of the board is first had and obtained.
(3) Wine different from that ordered which has been delivered in error to a retail licensee may be returned to a wine distributor and either replaced with that wine which was ordered or a cash refund may be made upon the approval of the board first being obtained: Provided, That the error in delivery shall be discovered and corrected within eight days of the date the delivery was made.
