Returns Policy on Delivery Costs
If you are returning an item to us for a refund or an exchange then the cost of returning the item to us is your responsibility. We do not refund your delivery charges unless you have received a wrong or faulty item from us.
Wine stock avalability
Very occasionally we may run out of a particular wine without notice.
