  • We are happy to arrange collection of faulty goods at our cost though you must ensure that they are securely packed. A refund will only be given once we have received the goods back and have agreed that they are faulty. Please note that on occasions there may be an odd bottle that is out of condition (i.e. corked) due to no fault of Premier Cru Fine Wine and that due to the costs involved in receiving and shipping such items we cannot accept returns of this nature nor refund them. We will not give refunds on wines that are returned that are in good condition but are not to the customers liking.
  • You may cancel your order at any time until seven working days after delivery.
