- Q. Can you ship wine to my state?
A. We currently deliver to all States and Territories of Australia.
- Q. What if I can't be home during normal business hours
to receive my wine shipment?
A. The signature of an adult 18 or older is required by law to receive a wine shipment. If you'd like, you can have your wines shipped to your workplace (just remember: you or someone over 18 will still need sign for them). To change your shipping address, e-mail us or call us.
- Q. What if I'm not at home when Australia Post delivers my wine?
A. If you are not at home when Australia Post call, and do not give specific delivery instructions Australia Post will leave a card indicating that they were unable to deliver your wine. Your case/cases will be returned to your nearest Post Office for your collection. A reminder card will be sent to you after five days. Cases not collected within 14 days of the initial attempted delivery will be returned to us and a Virgin Wine Customer Service representative will contact you to arrange further delivery.
- Q. Can my order be delivered on a particular day or time?
A. Unfortunately we're not able to offer this service. (Believe us, we would if we could.)
- Q. Can I ship wine as a gift?
A. Sure. Just make sure that the recipient is over 18. Enter the recipient's address as the delivery address when you place your order. Indicate that the order is a gift during checkout - you'll have the option to include a short gift message and make sure prices aren't displayed on the receipt. As always, someone over 18 will need to sign for the wine when it arrives.
- Q. Why didn't all of my bottles arrive with my order?
A. We aim to pack all orders as efficiently as possible to ensure that your wines reach you as quickly as possible. On occasion, your cases may be packed separately. All cases should arrive within the normal delivery time, but if you have any concerns, email us or call us.
- Q. I received different wines from those I ordered. Is
A. Because we specialise in boutique wines (big-flavoured wines made in tiny quantities, typically by small estates), we take the chance that we'll run out of the wines we write to you about. Occasionally, we do. Luckily, this can be a great opportunity to explore something new. If we do run out, we'll choose another handcrafted wine of equal or greater value. It'll be as close as possible in style to the original wine offered, and we'll make sure it comes from an equally passionate winemaker. Chances are you'll simply discover a new favourite (or at least customers frequently tell us that's the case). Remember, with our 100% money back guarantee, there's no risk. If you're ever not impressed with a wine, just let us know.
- Q. What type of payment do you accept?
A. Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
- Q. How much do I pay for delivery?
A. Delivery to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, ACT and Newcastle to Wollongong is $9.99 per case. Delivery is $12.99 per case to country NSW and country Victoria. Deliveries to Queensland, SA country, Perth, WA country, Tasmania and the Northern Territory cost $14.99 per case.
Discovery Club Membership
PLEASE VISIT OUR DISCOVERY CLUB PAGE FOR FULL DETAILS
- Q. When will my next Discovery Club shipment arrive?
A. We will reserve an Discovery Club case for you approximately every three months. We will email you before your case is shipped, so you know your case will soon be on the way. Check out the shipping policy on our Terms and Conditions page for more information.
- Q. Is there a membership fee for the Discovery Club?
A. Nope, there's NO membership fee. And, we offer a 100% money-back guarantee. So, if you're not completely satisfied, you can cancel at any time.
- Q. What will I pay? How much will I save?
A. Because we buy direct, we can offer you boutique wines, without the boutique premium. You'll pay $149.99 for 12 bottles, plus shipping and applicable tax. That is a saving of at least 20% every time.
- Q. Will you tell me about each case before you send it?
How will I know when it's on the way?
A. Every 12 weeks, we'll email you with the full details of your next case. That email is your heads-up that your case will soon be on the way. You'll always have plenty of time to decide whether you want to take it.
- Q. If I like a wine I received in my club shipment, can
I order more?
A. Of course, go online or call us. Just keep in mind that many of our limited-quantity, small-estate wines sell out quickly. If that happens, our customer service team can definitely help you select a wine you're likely to enjoy just as much.
- Q. What if I'm on holiday when my next case is
supposed to arrive? Or, if I have too much wine?
A. No problem. There is no commitment. You can delay delivery or skip a case altogether. Just go to your account online, call us or email us.
- Q. One of the wines in my upcoming case doesn't appeal.
Can I switch wines?
A. Sure! You can change any number of wines within your case. Just go online, give us a call or email us. Our wine advisors will help you choose something else.
- Q. You've delivered my Discovery Club case. I don't
want it. What do I do now?
A. We never want to receive wine you don't want. So, just call us, and we'll take care of it, at no cost to you.
- Q. I've ordered before. Do I already have an online
A. Nope. Unless you've gone through the account creation process, you do not have an online account. If you want one, it takes just a few moments to create your account as you go through the checkout process.
- Q. What are the benefits of creating an online account?
A. Creating an account allows you to store shipping addresses and credit cards for use on future purchases, making your future shopping experiences even more convenient. Additionally, you'll be able to view the history of your online orders.
- Q. What if I don't want to create an online account?
A. No problem. If you never created an online account, you're under no obligation to do so. If you have created an online account and would prefer not to use it for a particular order, you can checkout as a guest - just select the "guest" option when prompted for your log-in and password at checkout. Or, give us a call and one of our customer service representatives will be happy to place your order for you.
- Q. How do you protect my information?
- Q. Can I change my address or payment online?
A. Yes, you can update your shipping address, payment information and shipping week along with other great functions to make your shopping experience even more convenient.
- Q. Can I manage my wine plan online?
A. Sure! You can switch to an all-reds, all-whites or mixed selection anytime. Please note that if you do change from, say, a mixed-case to an all-reds case, you will continue to receive an all-reds case until you switch your case preference back to "mixed." You can also store a list of your favourite wines, update your wine preferences, keep track of your orders, and re-order any wine you've enjoyed in the past (as long as we still have it!).
- Q. I lost my password, what do I do?
A. Click the "Forgot Your Password?" link below your Login. Enter the email address on your account and click "submit". The email to reset your password will be sent to you automatically. In the email, you'll be prompted to click a link to a reset page, where you can reset your password.
- Q. I'm trying to login and getting a message that my
password isn't recognised, what do I do?
A. Our passwords are case-sensitive and require at least six characters (hey, we like security!). So, if your password isn't working, check two things. One: is the password you're entering at least six characters? Two: are you entering the password exactly as you created it? If the answer to both questions is yes and you're certain that you've already created an online account, use the "Forgot Your Password" link to reset your password.
- Q. Can I track my order?
A. Unfortunately, the service provider we use does not allow you to personally track your order. Having said that, if you call one of our friendly staff on 1300 712 870, they will be able to track your order on your behalf.
- Q. Where did you get my name?
A. Like other major direct mail businesses, we occasionally rent names from authorised suppliers of lists who follow strict consumer data protection protocol. It's possible we got in touch with you in this way.
