A Word About our Shipping Costs
We charge a flat rate of £9.95 per parcel for sending wine, although shipping is free for orders of six bottles or more.
Why so much for a single bottle? Well, it is very difficult for a small business like ours to find a courier willing to ship liquids, especially alcoholic ones, or glass – the ones which do charge a premium. They also won't insure it for loss or damage, so we need to ensure bottles are very well-protected by using specially produced packaging materials.
As a consequence, it actually costs us £10.87 to send a single bottle (and £1.20 more than this to Central London). Every extra bottle we send in the same parcel costs about a pound more. So, as you can see, we are actually losing money on shipping – but we think £9.95 is quite enough to ask you to contribute!
The good news is, the more bottles you include with your order, the lower the cost per bottle – especially if you order enough to qualify for free shipping!
