How The Contract is Formed Between You and Us

After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (the Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.

The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Product has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation


Please refer to our separate delivery page for terms and conditions and delivery charges.

Orders received by 1pm will be dispatched the same day. Standard delivery time frame is 24-48 hours provided that the item is in stock.

We stock most items that are listed on our website and are able restock regularly for items that go out of stock. We aim to process orders as soon as possible, but obviously wines can go out of stock from time to time. This means we will not always be able to deliver the next day.

We will then contact you to advise you of the delivery time frame we can meet, or recommend an alternative wine or refund your payment if you do not want to proceed with the order.

If you need the wine for a particular date, or before a particular date please make sure you mention this in the comments section when placing your order.

When you place an order with us you will be sent an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and setting out the details. Your order represents an offer to purchase from us, which is accepted by us when we contact you (usually by email but sometimes by telephone) with confirmation stating that we have dispatched the goods to you.

Please note delivery times can be longer at peak times e.g. in the lead up to Christmas.

Age Restrictions

We do not sell wine to anyone who is under the age of 18. That is the law. By placing an order with The Fareham Wine Cellar you are confirming that you are at least 18 years old.

The recipient of any deliveries must be over the age of 18 years old. Likewise, if you are buying a gift, the recipient must also be over 18 years old.

All goods must be signed for on delivery by an adult aged 18 years or over. If no one of that age is at the address when the delivery is attempted the goods may be retained by the driver, in which case the driver will leave notification of attempted delivery and a telephone number for you to rearrange delivery.

Once the wine has been delivered, according to your original delivery instructions, it becomes the recipient’s responsibility.

Claims, Breakages and Refunds

Customers are requested to carefully check all goods at the time of delivery. The delivery or carrier’s note should be signed noting any shortages or breakage. We regret we cannot accept claims for shortages or breakages not recorded in this way.

All packaging / breakages must be retained for inspection in the event of any claims, which should be made within 24 hours of receipt of goods. We must have confirmation of any breakages or shortages within 24 hours of delivery, either by telephone, email or fax.

We are committed to providing our customers with an unsurpassed level of service and are equally committed to ensuring we provide a safe and legal product. If a wine is corked or faulty we will offer a replacement or credit on the return of the bottle in question. Please contact us immediately by email to info@farehamwinecellar.co.uk and we will organise a refund.

We may request the return of the damaged / faulty product before a refund is given so that we can make an assessment as well.

Shipping and handling charges are not refundable unless the goods delivered were incorrect, damaged or faulty (this does not affect your statutory rights in the event of faulty goods).


We warrant that any product purchased from us is of satisfactory quality. If you have any reservations or comments about the appearance of or quality of our products, you should state these on our carrier’s delivery statement. Alternatively, you must notify us of any complaints you may have within 7 days. Unless we receive such a complaint from you within the period stated, you will be deemed to have accepted delivery of the products in accordance with your order.

We undertake the proper safekeeping and storage of wines in our possession and will act in good faith when purchasing wine for resale but we will not be responsible for the state and condition of wines or whether the wine corresponds to the qualities which might be expected from its description.

If we supply any wine which upon receipt our customer is not satisfied with in appearance, then we will accept the wine back for full refund, provided it is returned to us in the same condition as when shipped by us. We expect any claims in this respect to be made within the aforementioned 7 days of your receipt of the wine.

With regard to wines older than 20 years, we do not accept an open-ended unconditional liability for the condition of the wine in the bottle. With older wines it is quite normal to find that individual bottles can mature, improve, and decline in taste at different times. Whilst we take every effort to ensure that the wines we purchase have been well-kept and are of good provenance and appearance, we do not provide an unlimited warranty as to their taste. However, at our complete discretion, we will consider replacing the remainder of any case sold which is not drinkable.
