Payment will be accepted by debit card, credit card or Paypal. All credit and debit card transactions are subject to authorisation by your card issuer.
Once payment is received by us a legally binding contract will exist between you and the Company. We reserve the right to refuse or amend any order up to the point of dispatch, and you have the right of cancellation as set out below. If we have to amend your order we will always contact you before proceeding with the sale. In registering on the website or placing any order for alcohol you confirm that you are over 18. No contract shall exist between us and anyone under 18 who attempts to order or to take delivery of alcohol.
4 Availability and Descriptions
We try to ensure that all wines offered on the Website are currently available, but availability is limited, particularly in the case of wines from small-scale producers. All products are offered subject to availability.
The bottle images shown on the Website may not be that of the actual vintage available. Please check the product details for the actual vintage. We aim to keep the Website as updated and as accurate as possible however wines produced in small quantities run out quickly and vintages change often.
5 Pricing and Discounts
Prices are given per 75cl bottle. All prices include duty and VAT.
If a product is accidentally offered at an incorrect price, we reserve the right to refuse to supply at the incorrect price and will contact you to see if you wish to proceed with the sale at the correct price.
All online orders over £100 receive FREE delivery wine to mainland UK addresses.
A delivery charge of £10 will be added to all orders below £100 to mainland UK addresses. Other UK addresses including the Scottish Highlands, Channel Islands and Northern Ireland have higher delivery charges dependent on the postcode.
We are unable to offer international wine delivery at this time.
Our wines will normally be dispatched within 5 working days of your order. Unfortunately, we are unable to specify an exact day or time of delivery. If you are not in when we try to deliver, then our courier will attempt to re-deliver your wine. If delivery is unsuccessful the package will be returned to the local collection centre. If it is not collected within 7 days it will be returned to us and additional delivery charges may apply to resend your order.
Please complete the comments section during checkout if you prefer your wine to be left with a neighbour or in a safe place. If your order is left somewhere at your request and subsequently goes missing we regret that neither we nor our couriers can take responsibility.
Please note that we cannot deliver to P.O. Boxes.

It is your responsibility to check the goods on or as soon as reasonably possible after their delivery to you.
