WINE QUALITY AND TASTE
We hope that drinking our wines will be an enjoyable experience. If you are dissatisfied with the wine you have received or it is received in an unsatisfactory condition please contact us on 0033 254 44 1162. Whilst we make every effort to ensure the proper cellaring of wines in our possession and act in good faith in purchasing wines, we cannot be responsible for the condition of any wines which have deteriorated due to their age or the conditions in which they have been stored.
We try to describe all wines as accurately as possible however taste and preference is personal and we therefore cannot be responsible for any wines that do not accord with their description.
Legal ownership to all wine shall remain with Amanda’s Wines until payment in full has been received for the wine and any other sums owed to Amanda’s Wines (whether or not then due and whether or not owing in respect of the wine supplied). Once the wines have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.
Payment is due with the order unless otherwise agreed by us. We accept payment by MasterCard, Visa, Delta, UK Maestro.
All prices for the wines that you order are as set out in our website at the time of ordering (except in cases of obvious error) and are per standard case (12 bottles of 75cl) in sterling inclusive of UK duty and VAT.
Our site contains a large number of wines and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the wines listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a wine’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the wine to you. If a wine´s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the wine, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
We are under no obligation to provide the wine to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
The minimum order is 1 standard case (12 bottles of 75cl).
