- 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
- 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. Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney $9.99 per case
(Plus Ballarat, Geelong, Gosford, Newcastle and Wollongong)
Gold Coast, Ipswich, NSW & VIC Country $12.99 per case
Perth, SA and QLD Country, Sunshine Coast & Tasmania $14.99 per case
Darwin, NT Country Near and WA Country Near $19.99 per case
Northern Territory Remote and WA Country Remote $29.99 per case

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
- 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
- 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?
A. We use SSL (Secure Socket Layers) software. It's the safest way to
send information over the internet. Additionally, your credit card
information is encrypted, and only the last 4 digits are displayed
in the order confirmation. On top of that Virgin Wines is a member
the Australian Direct Marketing Association (ADMA) and proudly abides
by a strict Code of Practice regarding the handling of your personal
details and is committed to acting fairly and honestly in all customer
transactions. Safe as houses, but for further information check out our
- 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
- 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
- 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.
