En Primeur Terms & Conditions


Why buy "En Primeur"?
The opening En Primeur price is almost always considerably cheaper than the future price of the wine on the open market. En Primeur can also be the only way to secure wines that are available in very limited quantities (some properties produce as little as 200 cases a year).

What exactly do I pay?
The offer price of the wine is exclusive of duty, excise, GST, insurance, shipping and extra labelling charges. As rates are subject to change before delivery these costs are invoiced as a second payment just prior to arrival. We include an estimate of the second payment with the offer price.

When do I pay?
Payments are due on invoice. The 1st invoice is at the completion of the campaign (July/August 2019) and the 2nd invoice prior to delivery (mid 2021). We accept payments by credit card and cheque.

When do I receive my order?
The majority of the wines will be shipped in the European spring 2021 to arrive here winter 2021.
