TERMS & CONDITIONS

1. Our Promise to You

If you purchase any of our wines, beers or spirits, and you are not fully satisfied, we will arrange to collect the product from you free of charge and credit your account for the full amount of that bottle.

Alternatively, if you are not home and you have not specified a place to leave the wine, our driver will leave a card and so that we can arrange a more convenient delivery time.

 

3. Vintage Changes

Due to high demand and constantly changing vintages, we may from time to time have to change the wines that you have ordered.
