The cost of redelivery may be passed on to the buyer.
7.3. Orders of wine to our central office in Bordeaux are made on a monthly basis. Please allow up to four weeks from the payment of the invoiced amount for delivery of your order.

7.4. If delivery has not been made within 6 weeks of the purchase date (delivery times may be subject to availability of stock and other factors), the customer is within their rights to cancel the order. This can be done by sending an official email to their sales representative. They will receive a full refund of monies paid if they so wish. This will be actioned within 2 weeks of the cancellation.
