Making A Purchase

LEGAL DRINKING AGE

When you place an order for alcoholic drinks with us you are, in doing so, confirming that you are not under 18 years of age. This also applies if you are buying alcoholic drinks as a present, in which case the recipient must also be 18 years or over.

 

RESPONSIBLE DRINKING

The UK Government advises that men should not regularly drink more than three to four units of alcohol a day and women not more than two to three. Consistently drinking four or more units a day for men and three or more units a day for women carries progressive health risks. After an episode of heavy drinking it is advisable to refrain from drinking for 48 hours. In some situations like pregnancy, it's better to avoid drinking alcohol completely.

For more information see www.drinkaware.co.uk.

 

SUBSTITUTIONS

If any items are out of stock we will contact you to ask if you would like us to substitute with an item of similar style and quality.

 

VINTAGES

Vintages shown are correct to the best of our knowledge. Where we have shown two or more vintages (e.g. 2010-11), we will move to the latter vintage when stocks of the former have run out. Occasionally, high demand and low availability of particular wines can lead to unexpected further changes of vintage. If you require a specific vintage please make this clear when placing your order. If we are unable to supply it we will contact you.

  

CLOSURES

To the best of our knowledge all wine bottles have a natural cork closure, unless otherwise specified.

 

CASE SIZES

Cases of wine are sent out in multiples of 12 bottles. Individual bottles may also be ordered.

 

PRICES

The prices shown include VAT at 20%.

The price of any product will be as quoted on our site, except in cases of obvious error.

It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our despatch procedures so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when invoicing the product to you.

If a product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before despatching the product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection, so that you have the option to consider before placing another order.

We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a despatch confirmation.

Cookies are used on this shopping site to keep track of the contents of your shopping cart, to store delivery addresses if the address book is used and to store your details if you select the 'Remember Me' Option. They are also used after you have logged on as part of that process. You can turn off cookies within your browser by going to 'Tools | Internet Options | Privacy' (in Internet Explorer) and selecting to block cookies.

Returns Policy

Your rights to return goods are protected under the EU Distance Selling Directive.

 

You are entitled to cancel your order and return the goods within 7 working days for a full refund, including the cost of delivery. Do this by contacting us by email or telephone and quote the order number supplied to you. Your refund will be paid within 30 days. You are responsible for the cost and risk of loss or damage when returning the goods, so you should take out enough postal insurance to cover their value. This cancellation policy does not affect your rights when we are at fault - for example, if goods are faulty or misdescribed.

Any goods returned should be in saleable condition.

If you believe that a wine is corked, in order to receive a refund you will need to send the bottle back to us with its contents so that we can verify its status.

These terms apply to your order. We may change our terms and conditions at any time, so please do not assume that the same terms will apply to any future orders.

 

None of these terms affect your legal rights and these are not diminished in any way. If any term is held to be invalid under any applicable statute or rule of law, that term is automatically omitted from the terms to the minimum extent necessary to comply with the law and without affecting the validity or enforceability of the remainder.

You agree to indemnify us against any claims, losses, liabilities, damages and expenses (including legal fees), arising out of your use of this site.
