About Us At Wines of Interest we select wines from producers - often on a small scale - who make their wines with dedication and passion. The true variety and quality of such growers is becoming swamped by the bland monoculture of the high street. Here listings are being seriously reduced and what remains consists largely of those big brand names who can afford to buy their way into the prime display areas of the multiples and supermarkets.

However, the independent wine merchant is the engine room of the trade. It is where passionate winemaking finds its outlet, where enthusiasm governs buying decisions rather than accountancy and where innovation and individuality are championed. Above all, we at Wines of Interest are here to ensure that interested customers like you can find the sort of choice, quality and personal service that you're looking for.

You can read our full Terms & Conditions below, but here's the main points that you may like to be aware of:

  1. You get a 5% discount for orders of 12 (or more) qualifying bottles (which is almost everything we list).
  2. Delivery costs no more than £10 per order depending on where you are, and whether we can deliver using our own vehicles, or have to use a national carrier.
  3. For many orders delivery will be less than £10, or FREE (click the "delivery" tab above for details). We do not offer evening or weekend deliveries.
  4. Deliveries will be left without a signature unless we are otherwise instructed. Please provide details of a safe location where your goods may be left should you be out. If a signature is required please let us know.
  5. Any shortages or breakages must be reported within 3 days of delivery.
  6. If any item you order is unavailable, we will contact you before sending your order. Please note that vintages move on from time to time and we reserve the right to change vintage without notice.
  7. We are happy to refund or exchange any unopened bottles you may wish to return as long as they are in re-saleable condition, though the cost of transportation for their return will be at your expense.
  8. We don't share your personal details with anyone else.
  9. You must be over 18 years of age to order from us.
  10. We want you to be happy with your purchase so if you have any questions or concerns please just get in touch.
    Making A Purchase Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our Catalogue, and click on any items that you wish to buy and put them into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on "Check Out" and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to satisfy the order. All prices include VAT at the current rate.
    Discounts are available when buying 12, or more, bottles of a particular line though for items already discounted, older wines, and those in short supply, a single price applies regardless of quantity.
    You must be aged 18, or over, to purchase alcohol from us.
    Shipping And Handling Local Delivery
    Free delivery is available via our own vehicles throughout most IP (Ipswich, Felixstowe, Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket, Woodbridge, Hadleigh) and CO (Colchester, Manningtree etc) postcodes as well as some NR (Norwich) areas. A modest charge is made for smaller orders. To reduce your delivery charge, or qualify for free delivery in these areas just try ordering a bit more!

Our local delivery costs are based on postcode areas and we do recognise that some customers who are just outside one boundary will incur a higher delivery charge as a result. If you think this is you, please get in touch. Our aim is to keep the costs of delivery down and we will help if we can.

National Delivery
Deliveries to the rest of mainland England, Wales and Southern Scotland are undertaken by a national carrier. These are charged at a flat rate of £10 per order though orders to these areas over £150 in value are delivered free. Prices for delivery to the Highlands, Islands and Northern Ireland are higher and charged at cost. We regret that we are unable to arrange delivery to UK offshore addresses or addresses outside the UK. All charges are inclusive of VAT.

We usually issue instructions to our carriers to leave your order in a safe place (such as with a neighbour) if you are not in. If this is not possible a card will be left with details of how to rearrange your delivery. This card must be responded to within 48 hours or the consignment will be returned to us.

We regret that evening and weekend deliveries are not currently available.

Delivery Schedule Our local delivery days are:

Thursdays: (Ipswich & south of A14)

Fridays: (Ipswich & north of A14)

Please order not later than Wednesday for local delivery same week.

National deliveries are undertaken by our carriers and may take a little longer

Deliveries are made during business hours either by our own vehicles or by contract carrier depending on your location. Our own vehicles cover most IP, CO and some NR postcode areas at least once a week. Neither Wines of Interest, nor our carriers, can accept responsibility for any loss or damage to the goods as a result of following your instructions. Please note that proof of age may also be required upon delivery.

Evening and weekend deliveries are not currently available.

Please inspect the goods immediately upon receipt and notify us of any shortage or damage within 3 days. In the absence of any notification within 3 days the shortage, damage or any other deficiency will be deemed to have occurred after delivery to you.

Back Orders We will contact you should any items from your order not be immediately available. We will let you know when (and if) the item(s) concerned are likely to be available again or help you select an alternative.

Vintages move on from time to time and we reserve the right to change vintage without notice. However, when we move to a follow-on vintage you can rest assured that we have tasted it ourselves and are happy with its quality. Should a particular vintage be important to you please let us know when you order.

Details such as ABV % and suitability for vegetarians and/or vegans are provided in good faith and may also change between different vintages and/or shipments. Please check with us first for up to date details should these be of particular importance to you.

Tax Charges All prices include VAT at the current rate where applicable.

Credit Card Security Payment by card is handled by a secure payment service provider.

Guarantee: We personally taste and select our wines and believe that each one of them is good of its kind and at its price. But if you find that one you have bought from us is not to your personal taste you may return to us any unopened bottles and we will give you a full refund or credit for those - providing that you notify us of your intention to return in writing within 7 days of receipt of the goods.

If a wine is corked or faulty we will replace or refund the bottle upon its return to us for testing. A higher level of subjectivity applies to wines of increasing age and we are unable to offer refund or replacement on opened bottles that are not actually faulty but are simply not to the customer's taste.

Returns requiring collection by us, or our carriers, will be subject to a collection charge.
