EN PRIMEUR WINES
The 'ORDER' status means that these wines are now available for you to buy. Collection of your wines is arranged once they have been bottled and released by the producers. Lead times for bottling can vary between 6-24 months, or sometimes even longer depending on the wine. On arrival your wines are landed into your own bonded storage account, or delivered to your instructions at current rates. We highly recommend storage in our fully insured, climate controlled and secure bonded facility, where your wines can mature quietly and undisturbed until they reach their drinking window, or from where they can be sold at the click of a mouse.
The '+ALERT ME' status signifies that these wines are likely to become available soon or that we have currently sold out and are actively seeking more via our extensive network. By clicking Alert Me, you will be informed via email as soon as it becomes available.
Please note that delivery to UK and EU addresses attract duty and VAT, which can only be invoiced at the time of delivery.
