Rules For Online Conduct
By using the service, you agree that you will not attempt to undermine the integrity of this web site.
All designs, pictures, words, logos and other content contained within this website is the property of SA Wines Online or is used by SA Wines Online under licence and shall not in any way be copied, reproduced, transmitted or duplicated unless as a means of placing an order with us without the express written permission of SA Wines Online. Nothing in these terms shall be deemed to have transferred or consigned any rights concerning such content to any user.
It is against the law for any person aged under 18 years of age to buy or attempt to buy alcohol and SA Wines Online is committed to holding up its legal responsibilities. In purchasing alcohol from us you confirm that you are at least 18 years of age and we reserve the right to perform checks during the purchase process or at point of delivery to ensure you are at least 18 years of age when purchasing alcohol.
Our delivery service covers the entire mainland United Kingdom.
We will endeavour to deliver the goods within 3 - 5 working days during normal working hours on Monday to Friday. If however, this delivery period is not suitable, arrangements can be made for an alternative day or time at extra cost.
Independent carriers are used for all deliveries. They will attempt to deliver the goods twice, after which time arrangements must be made directly with them for a convenient delivery day at your expense. If the delivery has not been successful within 7 days, then the goods will be returned to our warehouse. In the event that we are given instruction to leave wines the risk of damage or loss passes to the purchaser on compliance with the specified instructions.
All our prices are inclusive of VAT.
Our minimum purchase is 6 standard bottles (4.5 litres) of wines.
All products and other items are subject to availability. Occasionally we will substitute wines for those of a different vintage, where these are of equal or greater value. Where a product is out of stock we will make every effort to offer an alternative product or to provide a reasonable estimate of when the product will return to stock.
We reserve the right to change the contents of any pre-mixed case of wine. In the event that any wine within a pre-mixed case becomes out of stock, we may substitute the wine shown for an alternative of similar or higher value.
We will provide a full refund of any wines that are faulty. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Faulty bottles may be required to be returned to us and we will arrange this as necessary at your convenience.
If any bottles are damaged or broken the carrier will normally not deliver the case and a replacement case will be despatched, at no additional cost, as soon as possible. We will keep you advised on the status of your order. If a breakage is found after delivery please contact us immediately. Please wherever possible retain the original packing.
There may be occasions when one of our wines is temporarily out of stock - we will offer you an alternative of equal value which you can accept or decline. It is possible that the vintage indicated on the web site is no longer available and if this happens we will offer you the vintage which we have in stock. You can accept or decline the replacement vintage or an equivalent value and quality alternative. In either eventuality we will keep you fully informed.
There are some products on the website which are not vintage specific. For these products you may receive mixed vintages if you have ordered more than one bottle.
Wineries occasionally change the name and/or labelling of certain wines without notification. Wherever possible we will supply you with the wines as shown on our website but this may not always be possible.
Cancellations and Complaints
Any order may be cancelled but any cancellation must take place within 14 working days from date of delivery. Should you decide to cancel, all charges to you will be refunded as soon as the goods are returned in merchantable condition.
In the event of complaint, please contact the company on +44 (0)330 134 8680, alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org giving as much detail of your complaint as possible. All complaints will be acknowledged within 2 working days and we will endeavour to resolve the matter as soon as possible.
