What is the difference between ‘Drink Now’ and ‘Lay Down’ wines?
The site comprises of Drink Now and Lay Down wines. Drink Now wines which are ready to drink. Whilst some may benefit for a year or so of cellaring, the message is a straightforward one – these are wines that are to be bought ‘off the virtual rack’ and delivered to your door. Lay Down wines are to be laid down. These are fine wines straight from the cellars of our exclusive producers, older vintages and wines sourced by our broking team. The majority of these wines will be bought in bond for long-term cellaring. A live list of fine wines on our books will be instantly available to those who are regular buyers.
What is the difference between bond price (i.e. in bond) and retail price?
Retail price includes duty and VAT. Bonded price is the retail price minus duty and VAT and is used when wines are being bought to lay down in bonded cellars.
What happens if I want to buy some wines in bond and some at retail price?
The wines will have to be bought in two separate transactions or be purchased over the phone. Please ring 020 7265 2430.
