Terms & Conditions • Sale Trading & Website Use
Sybarite Cellars Ltd (company registration number 10188916)
We are Sybarite Cellars Ltd, a limited company incorporated in England and Wales (company number 10188916) whose registered office is at 33 Commondale, London, SW15 1HS, United Kingdom. We are specialist fine wines, spirits, beers & lager and olive oil merchants, and our business operates out of the United Kingdom (UK). Our products and services are as advertised.
Please read these Terms & Conditions carefully as they set out our respective rights and obligations that apply when purchasing products and services from this website.
Payment will be accepted by debit card (Visa), credit card (Visa, MasterCard), or charge card (American Express). All credit and charge card transactions are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. In addition, as extra fraud protection, Sybarite Cellars may (but is not obliged to) make extra checks on the names and addresses given in the order process against commercially available records such as Electoral Roll data. We may need to contact you again to verify details before we deliver and will not be held responsible for any delay so caused.
Availability & Substitute
Sybarite Cellars does its utmost to ensure that all wines offered on the website portfolio are currently available, but availability is often limited, particularly in the case of the rare wines from small-scale producers that we offer, and therefore all products are offered subject to availability.
Sometimes we will supply an ensuing vintage when the quoted wine vintage is no longer available, providing that we are confident it is fully the peer of, and as good value as, the unavailable wine. We will contact you if we are not fully confident with a replacement vintage.
Photographs are for illustrative purposes only and are not vintage-specific. They do not guarantee the condition or appearance of any product. Packaging changes occur frequently, and photographs are not always updated. If an image of a particular product is unavailable we may use an image of a similar or representative product.
A legally binding contract will exist between you and the Sybarite Cellars, once an order has been paid for and/or despatched to you whichever occurs first, but we reserve the right to refuse or amend any order up to the point of dispatch, and you have the right of cancellation as set out below.
If we have to amend your order, we will always contact you before proceeding with the sale. In registering on the site or placing any order for alcohol you confirm that you are over 18. No contract shall exist between us and anyone under 18 who attempts to order or to take delivery of alcohol. If the drivers are in any doubt about this they are instructed not to leave the products and the sale will be cancelled.
Sybarite Cellars may change these contract Terms & Conditions without notice to you in relation to future sales.
Retail prices are inclusive of VAT and are quoted duty paid in UK Sterling (GBP), for 75cl bottle sizes unless stated otherwise. Delivery is free on all case orders, to a single delivery address on the UK mainland.
For trade prices, please contact us.
We reserve the right to change our prices and pass on increases should they be incurred.
Delivery is free on all case orders, to a single delivery address on the UK mainland.
Please allow up to 4 working days for delivery, and up to 7 working days for delivery to the Scottish Highlands - multiple case orders may be delivered at separate times depending on the delivery outset i.e. from warehouse or In Bond storage.
Deliveries must be signed for by an adult, aged 18 years or over, or we cannot accept liability for non-delivery.
Please go to the delivery page.
You will be deemed to have accepted the products as delivered and in fulfilment of your order at the time of delivery, unless we hear from you within 24 hours of delivery, and you will not be entitled to reject them thereafter except as set out below.
You have a legal right to cancel an order or contract under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or decide for any other reason that you do not want to receive or keep the products, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the order or contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel a contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
However, this cancellation right does not apply in the case of:
(a) any products, within the purchase unit (case) that are unsealed after you receive them;
(b) any products which become mixed inseparably with other items after their delivery.
Your legal right to cancel an order or contract starts from the date of Payment Confirmation (the date on which we email you to confirm payment and our acceptance of your order), or the date products are dispatched (the date on which you place the order if before 2pm). The cancellation period ends 14 days after the day on which you receive the Product.
To exercise your right of cancellation, you must give written notice to Sybarite Cellars by email and include the following details: name, billing address, delivery address, contact telephone number, ordered product details, the order number and order date.
You are under no obligation to use a ‘Cancellation Form’ but if you would like a form, please contact Sybarite Cellars through the contact us page.
We will confirm the cancellation by email and forward you a return delivery address to arrange delivery by you at your expense.
Once the products have been received, Sybarite Cellars will refund or credit you the price you paid for the products, less any further collection or delivery charges over and above the price you paid of the products, including charges made by credit card companies. Further, please note we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the products.
Upon receipt and acceptance of returned products by us, a refund will be made within 30 days.
Orders or contracts cancelled when delivery has been made from a Bonded Warehouse will incur a reduction to your refund to cover the Bonded Warehouse handling and/or delivery costs.
Fulfilment Error, Missing or Damaged Products
Each consignment of wine should be carefully checked upon delivery to make sure that it is intact and in full.
If your products are damaged, you can refuse to sign for it. The parcel will be returned, and we will arrange for a replacement to be sent. You can accept the delivery by signing for it, but please note down how many bottles are damaged and the nature of the damage on the carrier’s delivery note when signing.
Subsequently if you open the delivery and find that the products have been damaged or has leaked then you will need to provide evidence in the form of photographs.
Please be certain to check the number of cases you are signing for - we cannot replace wines that have been signed for but not actually received. We will not accept any claims for missing or damaged wines unless it is stated on the courier’s documentation.
Sybarite Cellars will be happy to refund the cost or send replacement cases, if there is a fulfilment error, missing or damaged wines within your order, provided we are notified within 24 hours of delivery by email with the order number.
For any wines purchased which are faulty, corked, tainted or out of condition, we do require the bottle and cork returned to us for inspection before we can exchange - let us know as soon as reasonably possible by telephone or in writing.
We will assess the wine and alleged faults upon receipt and if we conclude (at our sole discretion, acting reasonably and in good faith) that the fault is not a result of mistreatment by you (deliberate, negligent or otherwise), you will be given the option to have the wine replaced or to be refunded through the payment method used by you when purchasing the wine.
Refunding will be for the wine and delivery cost if a single case was ordered; the original order delivery cost cannot be refunded for faulty wine if it was part of a larger multiple case order. We will fully refund the returning faulty wine delivery cost once the alleged faults have been established.
If you are not happy with any aspect of our service or if you have any queries or comments, please contact us.
Sybarite Cellars does its utmost to make sure that wines are delivered to you in the best possible condition.
There is always an element of risk in the purchase of the older fine wines, as their condition is inevitably variable - the prices at which we offer these to you reflect this.
Sybarite Cellars believes that every wine we represent is of excellent quality, characterizing the terroir and winemaking culture of its origin. We do our best to competitively price our wines to include delivery, and in turn reflex the true value of the wine and our service.
In the UK, it is illegal to sell alcohol to anyone under the age of 18 years. Similar restrictions apply in other jurisdictions. By placing an order with Sybarite Cellars, the Customer confirms that he or she is at least 18 years old (or otherwise above any applicable age limit). At the time of delivery of the Customer's order, Sybarite Cellars or its agent may request proof of age from the person accepting the delivery. If appropriate proof cannot be produced, Sybarite Cellars or its agent may refuse to deliver the order.

If any provision, or any part of any provision, of these Terms & Conditions shall be or become illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any respect then that provision, or that part, shall be severable from these Terms & Conditions and the remainder of the provision and/or all other provisions shall remain valid and enforceable and the liability of Sybarite Cellars and the Customer shall not be affected or impaired.
