Wine will only maintain its value, and quality, if it is stored properly. Our state-of-the-art, secure, bonded warehouses are strictly controlled environments: temperatures are regulated to within half a degree, and movement of stock is kept to a minimum. Before entering the warehouses, bottles and their original packaging are assessed, checked and gently acclimatised to ensure we can guarantee the perfect condition of everything we store. For added peace of mind, all wines are insured at replacement value.
Wines can be stored in our temperature-controlled cellars at the following rates:
- £13.80 (inc. VAT) per case per annum
- £12.60 (inc. VAT) per case per annum for Cellar Plan Members
- Insurance at your wines’ replacement market value is included in our storage costs.
Is there a minimum charge for storing wine with us?
Yes. The minimum annual charge for storing wine with us is £41.40. This amount can be used to cover rent for the first three 12-bottle cases (or equivalent) that you have in your Private Reserve, including any under beneficial ownership.
Withdrawing wines from storage
When wines are withdrawn, unless exported or transferred to another bonded warehouse, duty and VAT are charged at the prevailing rate on the original cost of your wine. Withdrawals of part cases are charged at £10 per product.
Delivery of your wine
Customers benefit from free Standard (three working days) or Specified Day (except Saturday) Delivery to all UK destinations, excluding Highlands, islands and Northern Ireland, provided the consignment is at least a case. Next Working Day, Saturday and Pre-10am Delivery may be available subject to delivery charges.
