Our couriers are wine transport specialists and have been trained on the transport and storage and delivery of wine. All orders are sent on the fastest possible express wine specific service, this differs from regular express shipping as wine cannot be transported using conveyor belts and requires hand loading.

During extreme hot weather we may hold back shipping if we feel there is risk of heat damage to the wine during transit. Should this delay be longer than 2 business days we will advise via email.

At this time we are only able to ship wine to destinations within Australia. If you are from an international location please reach out via the contact page and we will advise a retailer as close as possible to you.

Should you have any questions in regard to shipping please reach out to our support team.


If you believe there to be an issue with a product that you have purchased please replace lid/cork (must be over 3/4 of bottle remaining) and contact [email protected] and we will be happy to assist with next steps.

You may return most new, unopened items in new condition within 14 days of delivery for a full refund. We’ll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).
