A. No, whilst we have a cellar full of back vintage wines we also sell a huge range of current vintage wines to suit every price point.
A. At Wine House we pride ourselves in looking after your wine. We have expert packers who will ensure the wine is securely packaged and we use custom polystyrene for all premium wine orders. We won’t send your wine out if we think there is a chance it will be heat affected.
A. Again we put a lot of time and effort into making sure the wine we sell to you is in good condition. We have a purpose built temperature controlled cellar on site and we only source wine from reputable, tried and trusted sources.

A. Yes we do – if a wine is advertised as qualifying for a discounted dozen price, you will get this discount when your order quantity for this wine exceeds 12. You can also have a mix of different wines to obtain this discount - but you must have at least 12 bottles of qualifying wines to obtain this discount. Wines that do not qualify do not count towards the quantity requirement.

A. Unlike other chain liquor outlets, we take pride in taking best endeavours to list our wines with their exact vintages. The exact same wines from different vintages can (and often) have vastly different tasting notes. Since no winemaker can go back in time and produce wines from a previous vintage -a side effect of this accuracy is that past vintages of a wine eventually sell out and cannot be replaced forever. That said, our customers take joy in cellaring quality wines and enjoy referring to past tasting notes from our website, even though these wines are no longer available for purchase.
