We want you to receive your wine in tip top condition and quickly. To ensure this happens, all our wines are shipped in extra strength ‘bottle-safe’ air cushioned packaging and we only use the premium courier services provided by DPD and Parcel Force. They offer a timed delivery window as standard. To keep things simple all orders are delivered within England, Wales and Scotland (excluding Highlands & Islands) at the flat rate of £5.99.
The flat rate excludes our current offers of buy 6 bottles (or more) and get free delivery and free delivery on all mixed cases. (Both these offers are valid only for orders delivered within England, Wales and Scotland and exclude Scottish Highlands & Islands and all offshore locations)
Deliveries to offshore locations; Scottish Highlands & Islands; Isle of Man; Northern Island; Channel Islands and Scilly Islands will be charged at £22.50 for orders up to 30kg for courier delivery within 2-5 days.
Inspiring Wines can only deliver within the United Kingdom inline with UK customs regulations.
