STORAGE OF WINES NOT PURCHASED THROUGH DAVY’S WINE MERCHANTS

As well as offering storage for wines purchased through Davy’s Wine Merchants, our service is extended to wines purchased elsewhere*.

Details of any incoming wines must be given to our logistics and storage team prior to us accepting them – please email [email protected] for more information.

Delivery of wines not purchased through Davy’s Wine Merchants will be subject to standard delivery charges, irrespective of the value of the wines delivered.

BONDED STORAGE

  • Bonded storage is only for wines under bond (wines which have not yet incurred duty or VAT). If you have paid duty and VAT on the case of wine, it is not under bond.
  • Only wines in original cases can be accepted.
  • Your wines are stored in recognised bond ‘London City Bond’ where we have a chamber in the bonded warehouse that is fully insulated from temperature fluctuations, light and vibrations.
  • All stored wines are insured to full replacement value.
  • Cases are subject to a £2.00 (ex. VAT) handling fee when booking in and out.
  • Onward delivery is charged at the rates quoted above.

DUTY PAID STORAGE

  • Your wines are stored in our below ground and temperature controlled Victorian cellars, which provide the perfect natural environment and ensures your collection will be maintained in optimum condition.
  • Unopened original cases (either in original cardboard box or wooden case) are subject to a £5.00 (ex. VAT) booking in fee per case.
  • Unopened original cases are stored insured at full replacement value.
  • Mixed cases are subject to a £20 (ex. VAT) booking in fee per case. This service is offered to current customers at our discretion.
  • Mixed cases must be packed in acceptable card or wooden cases. Where packaging is deemed unsuitable for storage, Davy’s can offer to re-pack in card cases at a charge of £5.00 (ex. VAT) per case.
  • Where possible, your wines will be stored horizontally.
  • Horizontal storage is not possible for mixed or re-packed cases not designed for this purpose. Where Davy’s have had to repack your cases, we will not be able to store horizontally.
  • Mixed cases can only be deposited and withdrawn as a sealed mixed case, and they must be clearly numbered. We request that a booking in form, detailing all wines, is carefully completed and our team will check and inspect all wines are as stated. Any discrepancies will be raised with you prior to any cases being accepted into storage.
  • Where possible, wines in mixed cases will be insured at replacement value. In order for mixed cases to be insured, the value must be provided in advance on our booking in sheet and agreed by our Fine Wine team.
  • Where single bottles (including spirits) are booked in, they will be subject to a booking in charge of £5.00 (ex VAT). If a selection of single bottles are receipted and are not to be stored as a mixed case (i.e. so that they can be withdrawn individually), the £5.00 (ex VAT) charge will be applicable for each different product received.
  • Wines can either be collected from Greenwich (two full working days’ notice required) or delivered.

*Wines are accepted at our discretion, depending on capacity and availability. All incoming wines for storage must be agreed in advance with the Fine Wine Team, with any deliveries into either our bond or duty paid cellars that have not been agreed in advance liable to be rejected.
