Terms of Sale

These terms apply to all the orders we accept. Once incorporated they will continue to apply to all future transactions unless and until modified by a written agreement between us.

  1. Minimum Order Policy
    We have a minimum order policy of €250 per order (excl. taxes and duty where applicable).
  2. Payment
    1. Unless an account facility is held, payment will be due upon receipt of an invoice.
    2. In the event of non payment of an account within the specified terms, we reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee of up to 20% of the outstanding amount, or actual losses incurred by CDP Fine Wines as a result of cancellation if greater than 20%. CDP Fine Wines reserves the right to utilise any monies held on account or otherwise received from or on behalf of the client to discharge any such cancellation fees.
    3. CDP Fine Wines shall be entitled to sell any wines, which it is holding or storing on behalf of a client to discharge outstanding invoices (whether on account of cancellation fees or otherwise). CDP Fine Wines will account to the customer for any cash balance held after discharging all outstanding invoices.
  3. Title
    Title to all wines shall remain with CDP Fine Wines until all sums due from the buyer are paid in full.
  4. Non-Collection
    Any wines not collected within one month of release date will be stored in our storage reserves at a cost of €10.00 plus VAT per case, per year, with a minimum rental charge of six months.
  5. Quality Control
    CDP Fine Wines adheres strictly to a condition code regarding all wines. All suppliers have been informed in writing that capsules and labels should be in good condition, and that ullage descriptions should conform to base of neck or better. In the case of most older wines, the colour should be deemed acceptable. In the event that wines are corked or out of condition for consumption, it will be at the discretion of CDP Fine Wines that replacements be made available, without obligation. We are fastidious with regard to provenance and storage conditions, so problems of this nature rarely occur.
  6. Acceptance of Goods
    It is your obligation to inspect goods immediately upon receipt and to notify either ourselves or the freight forwarder immediately of any shortage or damage. In the absence of any notification within three days the shortage, damage or any other deficiency will be deemed to have occurred after delivery to you.
  7. Force Majeure
    CDP Fine Wines will not be liable for failure to meet agreed obligations due to prevailing circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
  8. Jurisdiction
    All contracts are subject to French law and jurisdiction. All wines are offered subject to market movement and remaining unsold.
  9. Duty and VAT
    Wines are offered for sale under bond, but some are available duty paid. Those required for home delivery and use within the EU community are subject to duty & VAT at the prevailing rates.
  10. Personal Information
    You agree that we may use Personal information provided by you in order to conduct appropriate anti fraud checks. Personal Information that you provide may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information.
