PRODUCTS AND AVAILABILITY
All items are subject to availability. In the event that goods you have ordered are not in stock we will contact you by email as soon as possible.
We use a courier company to deliver orders. The courier will require a signature on delivery, if you are unlikely to be at home you might prefer to use your work address. Alternatively, you might be carded leading to possible delays or, in the worst case, having to collect from your nearest depot. In the unlikely event that delivery is delayed, due to no fault of our own, we cannot accept responsibility for that delay.
Claims for breakages or other damage must be made to the carrier at time of receipt and followed up in writing or by email to Hambledon Vineyard within three days of receipt. We are unfortunately unable to offer refunds on orders if we have not been notified within this time period.

The total cost of your order is the price of the products plus delivery charges. All orders are positively credit card sanctioned prior to dispatch, so please ensure that the details you provide us with are correct. We cannot accept responsibility for an order being held back as a result of incorrect or invalid payment details being supplied.
