1. Who is Ten-Acre Wines Limited?
Ten-Acre Wines Limited is an independent, specialist Wine Merchant operating since 2004. We hope that via our website, our expertise, our enthusiasm and our range of hand-selected wines we will encourage you to escape the clutches of the supermarkets and mass market, mail order ‘wine clubs’ to discover a world where quality and individuality need not just mean ‘expensive’.
Our whole ethos at Ten-Acre is based on bringing wines of quality, individuality and value to our customers. We don’t deal in anonymous wines sourced from vast corporations where the only difference is between label colours; our customers demand value and, of course, an intrinsic quality, but they also want their wines to have vitality and a sense of place. Unlike many web-based ‘merchants’ we do not offer bogus discounts on drab drinking; we source the wines we love direct from the producer wherever possible to offer the best prices to you. From classical Grand Crus to exciting new ‘everyday’ wines we are passionate about what we do and the wines we list.
2. Is there a minimum order size?
You can buy wines, generally speaking, in units of 3, 6 or 12 unless otherwise stated, and our weekly offers always have such details included.
3. Delivery information and charges
All retail orders totalling over £200 will be delivered free of charge in England & Wales, any orders less than £200 will be charged at cost or £12.50 inclusive of VAT, whichever is the greater. For all orders outside of England & Wales, non-retail orders or multiple delivery drops, other charges will apply – please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Worldwide shipping rates available on request. Please note that we cannot ship directly to the United States; delivery must be through a pre-arranged importer.

4. Delivery Times
All deliveries are made by London City Bond and delivery days and times are under their control, although normally we have advance notice of when a delivery will be made.
5. What about if no one is home to meet the courier?
If noone is home, it is always useful, if at all possible, to indicate somewhere where the wine can be safely left, but if a request is made for wine to be left unattended, Ten-Acre Wines Limited cannot be held responsible if the wine goes missing after the delivery has been made.
6. What are the ordering and payment options?
Payments may be made by Credit/Debit card or Bank Transfer. Ten-Acre Wines Limited provides a fully secure link for card payments via World Pay (Visa and Mastercard only), but we cannot take payments over the phone. Payment may also be made by Bank Transfer.
7. What is the Ten-Acre Wines Limited policy on breakages from deliveries?
London City Bond will advise us if there are any breakages but 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 count the number of parcels that you are signing for and ensure that the number is correct as we cannot replace any wines that have been signed for but not received.
To prevent fraudulent loss or damage claims, we need to be made aware of any damage or loss ASAP, so please notify us via e-mail (email@example.com) or phone (+ 44 1992 618 017) within 24 hrs.

12. Does Ten-Acre Wines Limited Offer Refunds?
Of course. If you receive the wrong wine in your order we will replace your bottle and refund any delivery costs you incur. We will not refund a purchase because you didn’t like the wine. If however, there is bottle damage or you consider the wine to be faulty, please contact us immediately by email to email@example.com and we will organise a refund. We will usually request the return of the damaged or faulty product before a refund is given.
13. Can I send wine as a gift to someone else?
Yes, as long as they are 18 years or older. When filling out the wine order form you have the option to include a different delivery address – simply fill this in.
