Our sales team will be delighted to help you with your queries and orders. The office is open from 9.00 am to 5.30 pm Monday to Friday.

Quality Guarantee

While we make every effort to ensure the proper cellaring of wines in our possession and will act in good faith in purchasing wines, we cannot be responsible for the condition of wines or whether they show any attributes that might not be expected. At our absolute discretion we will consider requests for replacing the unopened balance of an order that is undrinkable.


All goods remain the property of Bancroft Wines Limited until payment is received in full. Until that time, the customer will hold the goods as trustees for Bancroft and must not remove, alter or deface any identification mark on the goods. In the event of sales of the goods by the customer prior to payment in full of the price, the customer shall hold the proceeds as trustee for Bancroft and such proceeds of sale shall be placed in an account of Bancroft in such a way as to be identifiable as the property of Bancroft. In the event of non-payment, Bancroft shall be entitled in addition to all rights to enter into any premises where the goods may be and recover possession of them.

En Primeur Purchases

All En Primeur prices are quoted In Bond per case delivered to London City Bond Tilbury, excluding Duty, VAT and onward delivery charges, unless otherwise stated.  At the time of purchase, please advise us where you would like your wines to eventually be delivered or stored.

We will contact you upon arrival of your En Primeur purchase at London City Bond. Once you have been informed of the arrival of your wines, delivery details must be confirmed within 4 weeks or storage charges will be applied.

If you have your own bonded storage account at London City Bond Tilbury then once you have provided us with your account details we can arrange a transfer under Bond with no further charge. In Bond transfers outside of London City Bond Tilbury will be charged at London City Bond transfer rate (current rates available on request).

When delivering wine outside of a bonded warehouse, Duty, VAT (currently £24.96 per case and 20% respectively) and delivery charges will be charged.


All goods shall be at the buyer’s risk from the point of delivery to the buyer or its agents. Loss or damage observed at the moment of delivery should be signed for accordingly, otherwise please no­tify us in writing within 48 hours. Packaging and damaged goods must be retained for inspection.

Bancroft only purchases wine from the most reputable and long-established sources, and confirms allocation in advance of this offer. In the unlikely event that our suppliers are unable to provide us with the wine we have ordered, we undertake to give a full refund for any wine we are unable to deliver.

No variation or waiver of any of these conditions shall be binding on Bancroft unless in writing or signed by a director of Bancroft Wines Limited.
