Our contract with you
Your order is an offer to buy from us. There will be no contract of any kind between you and us unless and until we accept your order and in the case of wines and goods to be delivered to you, when we actually despatch the goods to you. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the goods or services to you without giving any reason. At the moment we accept your order or in the case of delivery of goods, when the goods are despatched, a contract will be made between you and us.
Description & Prices
The description and prices payable for the items or services that you order are clearly set out in our price list, brochure and or website. If, by mistake, we have under-priced an item or service, we will not be liable to provide that item to you at the stated price provided that we notify you before we despatch the item concerned or, in the case where we are not despatching an item, within 7 working days of our acceptance of your order and we may cancel your order provided we refund you any payments you have made. You may agree the correct price in which case we will proceed with your order. In the unlikely event that an item has been over charged a full refund of the difference will be given.
We reserve the right to change our prices. Please refer to the latest price list or our website for all current prices. Please note prices issued in the latest price list or on our website supersede any prices set out in these terms and conditions if they are different.
Prices listed for wines are quoted per bottle and per case, unless otherwise stated and include GST at 7%. A case is equivalent to 12 x 75cl. bottles, 6 x l50cl magnums, 24 x 37.5cl. half bottles, 12 x 50cl. imps, 36 x 25cl. quarter bottles.
Prices are subject to currency and market fluctuations, changes in duty and GST as well as stock remaining unsold. The case bottle price shows the discount available when wines are bought by the unmixed case. If any other currency is stated, this is subject to currency fluctuations and is an indication only.
How to Pay
We accept Maestro, Visa, Mastercard, American Express or cheques payable to `Berry Bros. & Rudd'. Orders may be delayed by transfers of money or credit card authorisations not being confirmed by the respective banks. Please note that it is the customer's responsibility to contact their bank to speed up this process if the order is required urgently. Credit cards are always charged in quoted currency. Please note that payment will be taken in full at the time of ordering. For authorised 30 day credit accounts, we will not accept credit card payments to clear the balance outside the credit terms.
Minimum order is S$500.00 per delivery address.
We offer a next working day (Monday to Friday) service provided we receive your order by 12 noon, that is free of charge for orders in excess of S$500 per delivery address. We do not offer Saturday delivery unless by special arrangement - please contact us for details. We reserve the right to charge for re-delivery of orders that have not been completed due to incorrect address information being supplied by the customer.
Whilst we make every effort to deliver all your goods in the agreed time, we will not be liable if we fail to do so in part or in full due to circumstances beyond our control.
Quality Guarantee and Policy
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. Many wines are sold to drink young so we offer a simple drinking guide to help clarify the optimum drinking time of all our wines.If a wine has been kept too long or stored inappropriately, we may not be able to offer a refund. If you believe a wine to be faulty please contact us on +65 66312717 or email us at email@example.com and we will be happy to make arrangements to have the wine collected and tested.
All wines and spirits and other goods are subject to availability. When selecting the wines or other goods for our price list we try to ensure that they will remain available throughout the life of the list. However, some items will inevitably go out of stock and we therefore reserve the right to select and deliver to you a substitute (of equal or higher value) to the wine you have ordered, to avoid delay in the delivery of orders. If we are unable to supply a particular item, or do not supply a substitute, we will not be liable to you except to ensure that you are not charged for that item.
All wines and spirits or other goods ordered remain the property of Berry Bros. & Rudd or its associates until payment is received in full.
International deliveries are available, and quoted upon request
Return of Goods/Cancellation

A full refund will be offered provided the goods remain in good condition and that the request to cancel is received in writing. Any cancelled order will be refunded within 30 days. A charge of S$ for collections will be payable. If returned wines are not deemed to be in a saleable condition, a re-delivery fee will also be charged.

En Primeur Cancellations
Wines ordered through our en primeur service can only be cancelled within 7 days of placing the order. A full refund of the purchase price of the wines will be given on receipt of formal notification in writing of cancellation of the order.

On occasion, and in our sole discretion, we are prepared to offer you a wine brokerage service where we will seek third party buyers for your wine.If we agree a sale of your wine to a third party we will purchase your wine from you and then sell it on to the third party. Our purchase from you will be conditional upon the third party purchasing and completing the purchase of the wine from BB&R.
In agreeing to BB&R's broking terms, you are authorising BB&R to have a two week exclusivity on being able to offer the wine for general sale. We will agree a price we will pay you for the wine. If we sell the wine to a third party within the two week exclusivity period, then our purchase from you will be deemed to have occurred immediately before our sale and, the sum agreed payable to you will be paid within 20 working days of the receipt by us of the proceeds of our sale to the third party. If the wine has not been sold within two weeks, BB&R will contact you to discuss a renewal of the period and/or a price adjustment or the return of the wine to you or storage of the wine.
The purchase and resale of your wines is conditional on their safe receipt (at your expense) into BB&R premises and that the condition of the wines is, in the opinion of BB&R, as agreed and suitable for resale. Typically, if you are offering wines for broking from outside BB&R's storage facility then the wines must be in original wooden case (OWC) and in good condition (see BB&R “Inspection Guidelines”).
Where payment is withheld by the purchaser and goods are to be returned (either by the purchaser or at your request prior to the sale, or where the wines can not be sold), transportation will be at your expense using BB&R's standard delivery charges.
