- We aim to let our customers know if items are available on the product page though we cannot guarantee the accuracy of that information as circumstances may change with our supplier.
REFUNDS AND BREAKAGES
Our couriers are very used to carrying wine and all consignments are sent on a Fragile Service so breakages are unlikely, but if they do occur we ask that you report them immediately to the courier.
Generally speaking if a wine bottle breaks in transit it will be immediately obvious just by looking at the box, but we ask all our customers to please open the box at the point of delivery and check you have the correct items and that nothing is broken. Every consignment has a delivery note detailing your order. If you do not report a breakage to the delivery driver you cannot then claim for it later. If there is a problem with incorrect items that is not an issue and we can sort that out at any time, but if incorrect items are returned immediately at the point of delivery it is faster and easier for us to replace them obviously, so we encourage our customers to check their orders on arrival.
If you purchase more than one bottle of any particular wine and you decide after trying it that you do not like it, you can return the remaining bottles for a refund or exchange credit however the return carriage is at your expense.
Any damage or problems arising from our accessories must be reported within 48 hours of the delivery date by the recipient or the customers who purchased the item. Failure to do so may result in us declining to replace the item and the decision will be entirely at our discretion. Refunds are not available on accessories, only replacement items. Please see our Terms and Conditions for a more detailed explanation.
