1 Sales Ordering and Delivery
We comply fully with our obligations under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013.
You must be of legal drinking age to order alcohol on our website (18 in the UK). If you are buying a gift, the recipient must also be over 18.
When you place an order you will receive an order confirmation email. This acknowledges that your payment has been processed and your order is received but not confirmed. Confirmations are subject to stock, description and validation. Once this has been undertaken, we will send another email to confirm that the order has been processed and the despatch & delivery process started.
If there any problems with your purchase or potential delays due to stock availability, we will contact you within 24 hours.
When you give us your payment card details you are confirming that you are either the card holder, or that you have the permission from the card holder to use the card for the purpose of ordering wine. You are also confirming that you are over 18. We will cancel any order that fails our credit card fraud checks, or on the advice of our payment provider, the issuing bank or the cardholder.
If the order is shown to be fraudulent, we will inform the police and cancel any further orders by the same customer.
We only accept orders for delivery to physical addresses. We do not accept delivery to PO boxes.
Delivery is £8.50 for orders under £90 and is standard 48 hour delivery to mainland UK only. Delivery to Northern Ireland is a flat rate of £21 whatever level of spend and this will be calculated when inputting your delivery address at the Checkout stage. This is per daytime delivery and covers up to a case of 12 wines. We will deliver your wine to anywhere in mainland UK. Delivery times are normally Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm. If you are not there the driver will leave a card for you to arrange a more convenient delivery time.
The person receiving the wine must be 18 years or older and our courier drivers have been instructed to operate a Challenge 21 age verification policy.
Although we make every effort to ensure orders are delivered on time, all delivery dates and times are estimates and not guarantees. Due to the current level of demand, there may be occasions when the delivery timeframe is longer than 48 hours. We will notify you as soon as possible when there is a longer delivery timeframe for your order.
Wine Delivery Cut-off Time Period
Order before 12pm for 48 hours delivery, any orders after 12pm will count as being ordered the following day. Orders placed over the weekend or on Bank Holidays will be processed for delivery on the next available working day. The 48 hours delivery timeframe will then commence from this day.
Please note that if you order on a Thursday or Friday, we cannot offer Saturday delivery as Standard and therefore there is the likelihood that your wine will be delivered on the following Monday or Tuesday respectively.
Please note that no deliveries are made by our Courier on a scheduled Bank Holiday and the Wine Parcel will be delivered the next working day available after the respective Bank Holiday.
Please see further details on the Wine Delivery Page

In the event that we have met our responsibilities as set out in these Terms and Conditions, in particular, our fulfilment of the order subject to Clauses 1.1 and 1.2, and thereby deemed in our reasonable opinion that we are not at fault, then in the event that any Wines are to be Collected from the Customer, we reserve the right to pass the Collection charges on to the customer. The charge is £14.98 which includes the Collection pick-up cost by the Courier and the cost of the Courier return delivery charged.

You must also pay a delivery charge for the goods as indicated on our website at the checkout page. In the unlikely event that the price shown on the checkout page is wrong, and we discover this before accepting your order, we are not required to sell the goods to you at the price shown.
