En Primeur Terms & Conditions
How sales ‘en primeur’ work.
You choose the wines you want to buy now and we will invoice you at the prices quoted. Effectively you are buying the wine overseas, often before it has been bottled. We will then invoice you for duty at the prevailing rate (currently £26.76 per case) plus VAT (currently 20%), on the cost of the wine and the duty, when it is shipped from the Autumn onwards. Prices are valid until the end of April 2020.
Wine is only offered in unsplit cases of 12 bottles or 6 magnums unless stated otherwise.
Please note that wine will NOT be available in bond. To enable us to be as competitive as possible we ship all wine to our own warehouse, duty paid. We will then deliver it on to you or to your preferred place of storage at our standard delivery charge of £5.95 per case for orders under £150, or free above £150 (including the duty and VAT). For Highlands, Islands and Northern Ireland please ask us for a quote.
Finally, whilst we make every effort to supply the wines listed, if the wines fail to be made available by the producer we will either offer to supply similar wines or alternatively refund any payments made.
