Orders

To order alcohol you must be at least 18 years of age. We will not sell or deliver alcohol to anyone who is, or who we believe to be, under 18 years of age. By placing an order you are confirming that you are above the legal age limit and we reserve the right not to deliver if we are unsure of this.

We cannot guarantee the availability of any of the items on this website. In the event that a product is unavailable or a specific vintage is unavailable, we shall contact you to arrange a suitable replacement or another acceptable arrangement to complete your order. Please note: labels, bottle designs and vintages can change without notice and, despite our best efforts, these changes may not be reflected by the images on this website.

The placing of an order on our website does not constitute a contract which will be made when we accept your order and process payment.

Prices 

Prices on this website are per bottle inclusive of UK VAT at the current rate. Prices are subject to changes in duty and VAT 

Although every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the quoted prices on this website, occasionally an error may occur and goods may not have a correct price attributed to them. If we discover a pricing error we will contact you and ask if you wish to cancel the order or to continue with the order at the correct price. We will not be obliged to supply the order if the goods are quoted at an incorrect price.

We reserve the right to terminate any special offer at any time, without notice.

Free Gifts and Discounts

When offered, only one free gift will be supplied per household and/or user account.

Promotions and discounts exclude gift cards, event tickets and products already discounted in price. Other conditions might apply at our discretion.

In the case of multi-tiered promotions, the discounts and/or free gifts are not cumulative unless specifically stated otherwise. The discounts and/or free gifts will be supplied subject to the order meeting the relevant criteria.

Gift Cards

Gerrard Seel gift cards can be exchanged for goods listed by Gerrard Seel. When the price of the goods is lower than the value of the gift card, the difference will be credited to the customer's account.

Gift cards cannot be used to discharge indebtedness on previous orders or in respect of accounts held at Gerrard Seel, nor any of its associated companies.

Gift cards cannot be exchanged for cash or credit.

Promotional vouchers cannot be used for payment for gift cards.

Gift cards have no expiry date.

Force Majeure

We will not be liable for failure to meet agreed obligations due to prevailing circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

Deliveries

A charge of £9.50 inclusive of VAT will be levied for each order of up to £49.99 in value and a charge of £7.50 inclusive of VAT for each order of between £50 and £94.99 in value. Orders of a value of £95 or more will be delivered free of charge. Prices are applicable to deliveries made to the majority of UK Mainland addresses only. Deliveries to certain Scottish Highland postcodes, to Northern Ireland and to other offshore islands may be liable for additional shipping costs. Currently we are unable to deliver to BFPO addresses or to any overseas countries.

We normally guarantee delivery within 7 days of accepting your order unless we have advised you to the contrary at the time of acceptance of your order. Our carriers are only authorised to deliver goods where a specific signature for goods is available, between the hours of 9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday and only to the address of the purchaser. However, where specific instructions are given to leave the wine without a signature being obtained or to leave the consignment at an address other than the purchaser or at a business address where goods may be signed for by someone other than the purchaser, we cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage arising as a result of carrying out those instructions.

Claims

Customers are requested to carefully check all goods at the time of delivery. The delivery or carriers note should be signed noting any shortages or breakage. We regret we cannot entertain claims not recorded in this way. In any case claims must be made to our office within three days of delivery. We shall not be liable for any consequential loss or damage in any respect.

Cancellation

Customers have a seven day right of withdrawal from mail order contracts. Notice of cancellation must be given in writing and will be effective upon receipt at our offices. Please note that in the event of a cancelled order, a charge may be levied to cover the cost of collecting the goods.
