    Our advice to ensure smooth delivery

  • We strongly advise all customers to consider carefully where the goods are to be delivered
  • Our carriers need a signature for the delivery, so please send the goods to an address where somebody can sign for them
  • Use a work address for delivery if a residential delivery could be difficult
  • To ensure that we offer the highest level of service to our clients, it is important that you provide us with complete delivery details (full name, address including post code, & contact telephone number)
  • You can leave an instruction at the time of ordering for parcels to be left with a neighbour (please use the Special Delivery Instructions section in the secure webstore)
  • Or you can request that the parcel be left safe without a signature (e.g. in the porch, at the back door, in the garage, etc). However, this is at your own risk and neither we nor our carriers will accept responsibility should the wines be lost, stolen, or damaged as a result of such instructions being followed.
  • If you are sending the wine as a gift to somebody else, please check their availability (i.e. that they are not on holiday or away from home)
  • If you miss your delivery, contact the local depot as soon as a card is received. They can then rearrange delivery
  • Upon delivery, customers are requested to examine all goods and note down any damage or shortages. Please then notify us within 24 hours and we will deal with any problems in a fair and timely manner
  • We make every effort to deliver your package safely and securely - your assistance is appreciated in helping us achieve this goal
  • Unfortunately, we cannot deliver to PO Boxes

Delivery details and re-direction costs

  • Our courier company attempts delivery twice if necessary and leaves a contact card if the recipient is not in. If the recipient does not then call their local depot, the parcel may be returned to us after 5 working days - the cost of which will be passed on to the customer
  • We cannot be held responsible for incorrect addresses and postcodes given to us. If you provide a wrong address or post code and we have to redirect your parcel to an alternative address, then we will charge a £15 redirection fee to your credit card

Sending deliveries to alternative addresses
