To assist with a smooth delivery of your order

  • 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.
