Delivery & Returns
There is no minimum order quantity, you are free to order as little or as much as you wish. However do bear in mind that delivery charges may apply. (See below)
Most orders are shipped within 24 hours of ordering, many on the same (if received before 12.00 noon) and all orders will be acknowledge via e-email once they have been submitted. A signature is required by the carrier upon delivery. If no one is in at the delivery address a card is left requesting that the customer contacts the courier company to arrange re-delivery. If the courier receives no instructions within three days the parcel will be returned to Sheldon's Wines. We are able to re-despatch the goods, however this service attracts a re-despatch charge of £12.00.
A flat rate of £6.99 is charged for an overnight delivery (except Saturdays, deliveries for Saturdays is £26.00). Some of the finer wines will have a shipping supplement to cover insurance and fragile shipping, this is stated when purchasing.
If for any reason the item you order is out of stock, we will contact you immediately to either offer you an alternative or advise you when the ordered item will be back in stock.
All prices on the website are per bottle and include VAT. Please remember this when comparing prices. Prices are subject to market and currency fluctuations and VAT.
If the incorrect wine is delivered we will replace your bottle with the correct wine. We are unable to refund a purchases because you did not like the wine, however if a bottle is corked or damaged, do please call us and we will endeavour to replace or refund the bottle.
