Delivery and Returns

MINIMUM ORDERS

There is no minimum order. Order as little or as much as suits you.

 

STOCK AVAILABILITY

To allow you to order with confidence, only stock we have on hand, in our possession, is available to buy on our website. The quantity on hand is displayed in our product pages.

Unlike many other merchants, we do NOT sell stock we don't have in our possession, therefore you will NOT have to wait 10 days or more to receive your wine.

We have even excluded stock stored off-site under bond until it is in either our Cheltenham shop, or our Cheltenham warehouse.

 

DISPATCH TIMES

As a result of policy of making on wines in-stock available for sale on this website, we are able to dispatch stocks on a same-day basis for orders received by 1pm. Very occasionally, if we have insufficient stocks in our SHOP, we may have to delay dispatch by 1 day as we collect stocks from our Cheltenham WAREHOUSE at the end of the day.

Click & Collect and Local Delivery are available on days and times the Shop is open although, of course, nothing stops you ordering for Collection/Delivery on the next Open day.

We prefer not to dispatch National Deliveries on a Friday (for Monday delivery) to avoid wine being stored over weekends in storage conditions we have no control over.

 

CLICK & COLLECT

A "Click & Collect" option can be selected on Checkout for collection from our Cheltenham shop. After ordering, you will receive an email, usually within 1 hour, confirming your order is ready for collection. There is no charge for this facility, and no minimum order.

 

LOCAL DELIVERIES

We offer Local Delivery to the Postcodes listed below. We run at 98% Same-Day local delivery for orders received by 2pm.

For Local Deliveries, deliveries are FREE for orders of £50 or more (reduced from a minimum of £75 during the Covid crisis). For orders of less than £50, a small order surcharge of £5 per delivery is applied.

RETURNS & REFUNDS

We accept returns with 30 days of delivery of goods. As we have no control over how the wine is stored once delivered, we cannot extend this returns policy for a period any longer than this.

Breakages will be refunded or replaced if reported within 7 days of date of dispatch.
