Welcome to Stone Vine & Sun

Stone, Vine & Sun Wine Merchants - committed to sourcing superb wines that truly reflect the land they are grown on.

4th August 2020 - COVID update  

Thanks very much to all of our customers who supported our DrinkSouthAfrican offer over the 1st-3rd August.  We have had an outstanding response, with many people clearly wishing to support South African producers. As a result we will be placing several orders this week in the Cape - and offering to pay up-front too.

We are up to date with orders. We are sending wine out nationally via APC and are delivering locally ourselves. Drivers have instructions to place boxes by the doorstep (or elsewhere if you prefer), will not request signatures, and will stand well away. Local customers may have to wait a little longer as we can't be everywhere at once, but we are dispatching national online orders as fast as they arrive, so most deliveries outside our region should arrive in 1-3 working days. We have taken two measures to encourage orders: we have reduced the free delivery threshold to £75  nationally (barring Highlands and Islands); and all wines in our stock have a 10% discount if ordered by the unsplit dozen.

Our shop in Twyford is still firmly closed apart from collections - we hope you will respect the reason for this. We would love to welcome customers into the shop again, but can't take the risk. If any customer comes into the shop and later tests positive then because of the track and trace rules we would probably have to close for a fortnight - and that would be catastrophic. We are offering collections at the shop between 10 and 5 during week days. If you wish to collect please say so in the delivery instructions box - and when you plan to come. Please don't come without pre-ordering; we must take payment details for telephone orders; and please don't ask to come in. You order will be in marked boxes on a table just inside our door.

Please note that due to the closure of the shop and short-staffing the office telephones will not be manned on Saturdays. If you would like to order either leave a message or email us at sales@stonevine.co.uk

Finally, thanks for all the orders we have received over the last five months - it's great to have your support,

Simon Taylor
