Our contract with you
Your order is an offer to buy from us. There will be no contract of any kind between you and us unless and until we accept your order and, in the case of wines and goods to be delivered to you, when we actually dispatch the goods to you. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the goods or services to you without giving any reason. At the moment we accept your order or in the case of delivery of goods, when the goods are despatched, a contract will be made between you and us.
On acceptance of your order (application) for a place at any of our ticketed events we will despatch tickets which you are requested to bring with you. Customers are requested not to bring children or pets. You may not be admitted if you do so.
If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the goods. This might be because certain goods are out of stock, because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the goods or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
Description & Prices
The description and prices payable for the items or services that you order are set out in our price list, brochure and/or website. If, by mistake, we have under-priced an item or service, we will not be liable to provide that item to you at the stated price provided that we notify you before we despatch the item concerned or, if we are not despatching an item, within 7 working days of our acceptance of your order and we may cancel your order provided we refund you any payments you have made. You may agree to pay the correct price in which case we will proceed with your order. In the event that you have been overcharged for an item, a full refund of the difference will be given.
We reserve the right to change our prices. Please refer to the latest price list or our website for all current prices. Please note prices issued in the latest price list or on our website supersede any prices set out in these terms and conditions if they are different.
Unless otherwise stated, prices listed for wines are quoted per bottle and per case, and include VAT at the current rate.
Prices are subject to currency and market fluctuations, changes in duty and VAT as well as stock remaining unsold. The case bottle price shows the discount available when wines are bought by the unmixed case. If any other currency is stated, this is subject to currency fluctuations and is an indication only.
How to Pay
We accept Maestro, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Paypal or Bitpay. Orders may be delayed by transfers of money or credit card authorisations not being confirmed by the respective banks. Please note that it is the Customer’s responsibility to contact your bank to speed up this process if the order is required urgently. Credit cards are always debited in Czech Kroner, EUR, £, or USD. Please note that payment will be taken in full at the time of ordering. Please allow 7 days for cheques to clear and we will not process the order until cleared funds are received, unless specifically agreed otherwise in writing.
Payment terms and non-payment
Standard payment terms: Our standard policy is to process payment at the time of ordering. On occasion, this may not be required, for example, when a Cellar Plan customers is purchasing within their three months’ Cellar Plan credit allowance, or for orders for Fine Wine offers, or when a consented payment method has not been registered. In such instances, we will confirm customer orders for a wine allocation and then request payment within seven days by bank transfer or payment card. If payment is not received, we reserve the right to cancel the allocation.
On occasion, we do offer credit terms to customers. If you would like to discuss this, please contact your Account Manager or contact Customer Service on firstname.lastname@example.org
Registering a default payment card: In order to make payment as simple as possible we recommend that customers register a default payment card with us. This can be done by logging in to your online account and clicking on your payment details. If you have never logged into your online account then you simply need to click the ‘Forgotten your password’ link to set your own password.
With your permission, we can automatically charge your default card, either at the time or shortly after confirming your allocation. If you would like us to do this, we do require your consent, which you can give by emailing email@example.com. Please do not include your credit card details within this email.
Late payment: If payment is not received by the requested due date, we may charge interest on the overdue amount at the yearly rate of 5% above the base lending rate of the Bank of England. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment (in cleared funds) of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. If demanded the Customer must pay us interest together with other debt collection charges incurred and the overdue amount.
Debt collection for non-payment: Without limiting our right to recover any sum due from the Customer at any time, we may, at our sole discretion, invoke our debt collection process as follows:
- The Customer will be contacted by either email, letter or telephone and payment must be arranged immediately. Notice will be given at this time that at the next contact for payment an administration fee will be charged.
- If after 60 days from the invoice date the debt remains unpaid, an administration charge will be applied to the Customer’s account.
- Should the debt still remain unpaid at 90 days from the invoice date, a further administration charge will be applied to the Customer’s account.
- We reserve the right to carry out any additional or other methods to recover the debt, including issuing proceedings.
- Preferred method for overdue payment is debit card or bank transfer. We also accept credit card but may levy a surcharge to cover handling and administration costs as follows: Mastercard/Visa 2% of total invoice inc VAT and American Express 2.6% of total invoice inc VAT.
Recovery of amount due from a Customer’s Private Reserve: Where a Customer has a Private Reserve account and there is an amount due to us, then the provisions set out under the paragraph “non-payment” in the section on “Customer’s Private Reserves” below shall apply, allowing us to recover the amount due from sale of the Customer’s wines.

Quality Guarantee and Policy
We are committed to providing our customers with an unsurpassed level of service and are equally committed to ensuring we provide a safe and legal product. If a wine is corked or faulty, we will, in the first instance, offer a replacement bottle; or if we are unable to replace the bottle from our stocks, we will offer a credit to the replacement value of the wine. We will ask for the return of the bottle in question. Many wines are sold to drink young so we offer a simple drinking guide to help clarify the optimum drinking time of all our wines. If a wine has been kept too long or stored inappropriately, we may not be able to offer a refund. If you believe a wine to be faulty please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or email us at email@example.com we will be happy to make arrangements to have the wine collected and tested.
Where wines are submitted to us for purchase by Shalom Wines s.r.o Wines please refer to Shalom Wines s.r.o’s “inspection guidelines.

All wines and spirits or other goods ordered remain the property of Shalom Wines s.r.o Wines or its associates until payment is received in full.

Your right to end the contract
You can end your contract with us by cancelling your order (see above), if the product you have bought is faulty (in which case you may be due a refund), or because of something we have done or told you which we are going to do.

On occasion, and at our sole discretion, we are prepared to offer you a wine brokerage service where we will seek third-party buyers for your wine. If we agree a sale of your wine to a third party we will purchase your wine from you and then sell it on to the third party. Our purchase from you will be conditional upon the third party purchasing and completing the purchase of the wine from Shalom Wines s.r.o Wines.
In agreeing to Shalom Wines s.r.o’ s broking terms, you are authorising and granting Shalom Wines s.r.o Wines to have a two week exclusivity period to offer the wine for general sale. We will agree a price that we will pay you for the wine. If we sell the wine to a third party within the two week exclusivity period, then our purchase from you will be deemed to have occurred immediately before our sale and the sum agreed payable to you will be paid within 20 working days of the receipt by us of the proceeds of our sale to the third party. If the wine has not been sold within two weeks, Shalom Wines s.r.o Wines will contact you to discuss a renewal of the period, a price adjustment, the return of the wine to you or storage of the wine.
The purchase and resale of your wines is conditional on their safe receipt (at your expense) onto Shalom Wines s.r.o Wines premises and that the condition of the wines is, in the opinion of Shalom Wines s.r.o Wines, as agreed and suitable for resale. Typically, if you are offering wines for broking from outside Shalom Wines s.r.o’ s storage facility then the wines must be in original wooden case (OWC) and in good condition. The brokerage service only applies to wine by the case and not individual bottles. It does not apply to a mixed case unless specifically agreed otherwise. We may introduce additional terms and conditions in relation to the brokerage service which will be advised to you at the time.
Where the purchaser cancels the sale contract (where they are permitted by law to do so) we have the option to cancel the contract for the purchase of the wine from you, by written notice to you (including by email). Where payment is withheld by the purchaser and goods are to be returned (either by the purchaser or at your request prior to the sale, or where the wines cannot be sold or the contract is cancelled), transportation to you of the wine will be at your expense using Shalom Wines s.r.o’ s standard delivery charges.
