Delivery of goods to you
We prefer to arrange delivery on a Tuesday to Friday basis so that our wine does not sit in hot warehouses over the weekend. Where possible we will try to accommodate your preference for delivery date. Delivery on Saturdays is available at an extra cost. Saturday delivery costs will be quoted to you prior to purchase if required. Generally wine will be dispatched within three days of our receiving your payment in full. You will be notified by email from the Courier that your wine is on the way.
We will deliver the goods ordered by you to the address you give us for delivery at the time you make your order. To expedite delivery we will ask you for a contact phone number at the delivery address, the full postal address including postcode and a contact email address for the recipient of the goods.
Please note that at those times of the year when high volumes of orders are being placed, e.g. Christmas, Easter etc., we cannot always guarantee delivery within the usual timeframe as we are dependant on the courier.
Our courier will normally deliver between 8am and 4pm, Monday to Friday. If you are not at the delivery address at the time the Courier calls, the Courier will only leave wine in a safe place if you have given us specific instructions to do so prior to despatch.
You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when we have received payment in full for the goods and they have been delivered to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss, damage or destruction.
Please note we do not filter our wines so, occasionally, some small flecks of grape skin or clear tartrate crystals may form in the wine. Both are entirely natural and will not affect your enjoyment of our wines.
