We do our best to keep our list up to date in terms of availability, specific vintages and current pricing. However, many of our lines are short-run, rare releases from smaller, artisan producers and on occasion there may be a delay in updating or a discrepancy between our physical Ludlow stock and our website list.
Some wines will be available in case quantities, others are odd bottles. With some rare, fine wines, where we have original cases available, these may only be available for sale by the case. We may in those instances be willing to split the case for a price premium. Please contact us to check. All sales are subject to remaining availability and confirmation at the time of payment. E&OE.
Subject to the caveats above, the price shown on this website is generally per bottle and includes UK Duty and VAT. (Please note that some third-party search engines automatically remove these local taxes, or do not collect and update information on a regular basis. We cannot monitor or vouch for information and pricing shown on third-party sites.)
We ship after receipt of cleared funds in UK£, payment in full. We accept payment by all major credit and debit cards except American Express, or by bank transfer.
POSTAGE & PACKING:
On receipt of payment we pack in transit packaging by hand here in Ludlow, for shipment via DHL. We can ship Tuesday to Friday.
DHL deliver next business day after collection, during business hours. The courier will require a signature on receipt of the wine, so we strongly advise that you select a date and address when you know someone will be available to accept delivery. If delivery is not made at the first attempt, the local DHL office should contact you directly and will coordinate re-delivery.
We have no minimum order size or value. However, there is a fixed charge for shipping 1 - 6 bottles, or 7 - 12 bottles, so it does pay to buy premium wines by the case to spread the expense! We pack and ship at cost, which changes over time according to fuel surcharges. Please call or e-mail for current tariffs.
UK DUTY & VAT:
Unless specifically noted (click on “More” in the wine description), all our wines are stored here in Ludlow and are immediately available for UK shipping. As such, we can only ship these wines UK Duty & VAT paid. Unless specifically noted, we cannot sell or transfer In Bond. We can of course provide a VAT invoice if requested.
UK SHIPPING ONLY:
We only ship wine UK duty and VAT Paid for delivery to UK mainland residential or workplace addresses. We do not ship directly to consumers or businesses outside the UK, nor into UK bond or storage for overseas customers. We cannot ship to anyone without charging UK Duty & VAT and we cannot refund or reclaim any tax on behalf of a third party.
