We will confirm to you by email your delivery date once your order is processed. Deliveries to remote UK addresses and other counties take longer and may be charged by the case. Any additional cost will be calculated when you check out. Please contact us if you have any queries regarding deliveries and see link here.

We do not have a shop but we can arrange to have your order delivered from our warehouse to our offices in SW11 3TN. Please allow an extra couple of days for the wines to arrive. We will contact you as soon as we receive your order. Collections are weekdays between 9am and 6pm.

All orders received Monday to Friday by 12pm will usually be delivered the following day (weekday) in London and within the M25, except during very busy periods. Please contact us for an ETA. Deliveries outside the M25 require longer lead-time; we will give you an ETA at the time of checkout.
