St Andrews Wine Company Ltd. Terms & Conditions

St Andrews Wine Company Ltd. will hereafter be referred to as StAWC

  1.  Prices: the prices on this website are all including UK Duty (at time of offer) and VAT at 20% unless otherwise stated.  Prices are subject to alteration without prior notice.

  2.  Minimum Order: there is no minimum order, however StAWC reserve the right to charge the customer the cost of carriage if the customer instructs StAWC to deliver their wines.  We will always recommend that that customer waits to receive their wine until they have built up a 12 bottle (or equivalent volume) delivery.  Currently, the delivery charge is £10 for between 1 and 12 75cl bottles equivalent volume.

  3.  Standard delivery terms: StAWC will not be held responsible for delivery failures beyond our reasonable control. As no UK courier service will insure glass bottled beverages, we cannot be held responsible for any breakages that may occur once the product has left our premises. We do make sure that the product is packaged well, using a AIR SHOCK system.

  4. Loyalty Card Customers:  Loyalty cards are for use in the StAWC shop in St Andrews, not on internet sales.  This is because the prices on the website are 'buy with' pricing, not 'buy from' pricing and as a result we have stripped out most of the profit margins, and costs of retailing wine.  If the product is advertised on the website it is always better value than our pricing in store, and we suggest that you buy through the website rather than coming in store.  No website prices will be honoured in store.
  5.  Payment terms: Payment is due with order. Credit terms are occasionally extended to trade buyers. In this case payment is due in full within 30 days of the date of invoice. We reserve the right to withdraw credit facilities on overdue accounts and charge interest daily at the rate of 1.5% per month on outstanding amounts.

  6.  Breakages: All goods should be examined at the time of delivery. Please notify us of any discrepancies, shortages or damage within 48 hours of delivery. Damaged bottles and packaging should be kept for inspection please.

  7.  Force Majeure: We shall not be liable for any failure to meet our obligations occasioned by circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

  8.  E & OE

  9. Retention of Title In spite of delivery having been made, property in the Goods shall not pass from the Seller until: The Buyer shall have paid the Price plus VAT in full; and No other sums whatever shall be due from the buyer to the Seller; and until property in the Goods passes to the Buyer in accordance with clause (0.2) the Buyer shall hold the Goods and each of them on a fiduciary basis as bailee for the Seller. The Buyer shall store the Goods (at no cost to the Seller) separately from all other goods in its possession and marked in such a way that they are clearly identified as the Sellers property.

  10.  Insolvency: If the customer makes any voluntary arrangement with his creditors or becomes subject to administration order or becomes bankrupt or goes into liquidation, or an encumbrancer takes possession or a receiver is appointed of any of the property or assets of the customer or the customer ceases or threatens to cease to carry on business, or StAWC reasonably apprehends that any of the above are about to happen, the invoice shall without prejudice to any rights in respect of any antecedent breach and if the goods have been delivered but not paid for the price shall immediately become due and payable.

  11.  New Account: Credit accounts opened upon receipt of one bank and two trade references. Until such time as the property in goods passes to the customer (and provided the goods have not been sold) the supplier shall be entitled to at any time require the customer to deliver up the goods to the supplier or their agents, and if the customer fails to do so forthwith, to enter upon any premises of the customer or any third party where the goods are stored and repossess the goods.
