4. Delivery times

Deliveries are sent on a next day service via courier. This does not mean we will always be able to deliver the next day. We aim to get deliveries out as soon as possible, but obviously wines can go out of stock from time to time. Should the delay be more than a few days we will contact you to advise a delivery estimate. If you need the wine for a particular date, or before a particular date please make sure you mention this in the comments section when placing your order. Actual time of delivery is based upon 9am-5.30pm unless premium services are paid for; likewise Saturday delivery is only available for an extra 15.

5. What about if no one is home to meet the courier?

If no one is home, the courier will leave a card to say she/he has been. Alternatively, you may authorize the courier to leave the order in a certain place. There is a textbox in the shopping checkout where delivery instructions can be left should no one be home to meet the courier. Let us know if you want the courier to leave your order in a certain spot (e.g. at back door or in shed etc). IMPORTANT NOTE: if a request is made for wine to be left unattended, NY Wines cannot be held responsible if the wine goes missing after the courier has delivered it.

8. What is the NY Wines policy on breakages from deliveries?

Although the courier should advise us if there are any breakages, it's still very important that you let us know ASAP of any stock damage once received so we can investigate with the delivery operator and source replacement wine for you. PLEASE BE CERTAIN TO CHECK THE NUMBER OF PARCELS YOU ARE SIGNING FOR - WE CANNOT REPLACE WINES THAT HAVE BEEN SIGNED FOR BUT NOT ACTUALLY RECEIVED. As you can appreciate to prevent fraudulent damage claims we need to be made aware of damage ASAP thus we prefer to be notified via e-mail or phone within 24 hrs.

9. Is NY Wines able to source wine not offered on the site?

Yes! We always stress to site visitors that we can assist in tracking down that hard to get wine. Just drop us an email and we'll let you know what we can do, as we have access to many distributors and key contacts in the industry.

We may request the return of the damaged product before a refund is given so that we can make an assessment as well.

When ordering wines as a gift, please be sure to give us all the details such as recipient's name, contact phone number, and any message you would like to include. We need a contact number to ensure that someone can receive the gift, or will authorise the gift to be left securely - without a contact number, we may have to charge you for re-delivery if the couriers are unable to deliver after 2 attempts - this charge would be 16.
