If you have specific delivery needs please call us on 0208 123 0609.
We will aim to deliver your order all at once but sometimes when you order more than one case it may happen that you will receive separate deliveries. Should this happen we will endeavour to let you know in advance and this will not affect your delivery charge.
Delivery will be made at the address you specify when placing your order on the Vinopic Wines website or over the phone. Vinopic Wines makes every effort to deliver your wines on time and within the delivery window you have selected. However, Vinopic Wines will not be held liable if the order is not delivered on time, in part or in full, due to circumstances beyond Vinopic Wines’ control.
We normally deliver Monday to Friday 07:30 to 18:00 unless you have scheduled a specific time window for your delivery. For deliveries marked as “Next Day”, orders need to be placed before 12:30, Monday to Friday, for them to be delivered on the next working day. Orders completed after 12:30 on a week day or on the weekend will be calculated as being taken on the following working day and will be delivered one working day after that.
For deliveries marked “Up to 4 working days (anytime)” orders need to be placed before 12:30, Monday to Friday, for them to be delivered up to 4 working days (anytime) after.

All deliveries require a signature. Should you not be at the specified delivery address when City Link attempt delivery, the driver will drop a card at the address to let you know they have attempted the delivery. This card will contain full instructions on what to do next to reschedule delivery. It is very important you take immediate action to reschedule delivery. If you do not get in touch with City Link before 23:00 on the same day the card is left at the address, City Link will automatically re-attempt delivery the following working day. Delivery will be re-attempted once (second delivery attempt) free of charge after which a second delivery charge will be levied. This charge will be equal to the original delivery amount plus a variable administration charge. You reserve the right to collect the wines free of charge from your local City Link depot within the time specified on the card left by City Link.

13. Prices, Payment and Acceptance of Payment
All prices you will see on the Vinopic Wines website are quoted in British Pound Sterling and may refer to Bottle prices or Case prices as appropriately marked. The prices include all relevant duties and taxes unless otherwise specified. Delivery is charged separately dependent on the delivery address and type of delivery chosen.
We accept payments from most types of debit and credit cards but we regret to inform you that due to the high commission prices levied and transactional times needed by American Express to process payments, we do not currently offer payment with American Express cards.
When shopping for pre-mixed cases the discount quoted is calculated on the non-discounted prices of the constituent wines.
We reserve the right to terminate or amend any special offer at any time and without prior notice but never after an order comprising a special offer is placed.
Your debit or credit card will be charged once you place your order. You will not be able to amend your order after this stage.
When you place an order you are agreeing to buy the wines in your basket from us. Nothing we do or say will amount to an acceptance of your order until such time when your wines are dispatched from our warehouse at which point a contract and contractual obligations will be made between Vinopic Wines and you. If for any reason, we decline to supply any wine or group of wines to you, you are entitled to a full refund for any amount you have already paid in accordance with the refund policy in Clause 6 above.
Vinopic Wines makes every effort to ensure all pricing information displayed on the Vinopic Wines website is correct and up to date. Occasionally it may happen that wines or special offers are mispriced. If we discover a mispricing it is at Vinopic Wines’ discretion to change it at any time before you have placed your order. Should you have already placed your order on the mispriced wine or offer, we reserve the right to cancel the mispriced part of your order or to contact you to ask whether you still want to proceed with the order at the corrected price. Under no circumstances will we be obliged to supply wines at the incorrect price.14. Reviews, Comments and Content
