Three Month Total Satisfaction Guarantee

Fortified wines by there very nature are built to last decades and historically we have had very few issues. We always seek to stock only good condition bottles from a known provenance that have been stored well throughout their life. However, there will always be a small risk that the wine may be faulty and we want to remove this risk for you by guaranteeing your purchase for three months.

The Vintage Port Shop
  • We offer a three month total satisfaction guarantee on our port wines (unless clearly indicated in description - see Terms for details). If your wine is found to be faulty within three months of delivery we will replace the bottle or generate a credit note for you to spend on any wine of your choice.
  • If for any reason you want to return your unopened purchase within 3 months in its original condition, we offer a no quibble refund policy.
  • Please note that corks are not covered by our guarantee. Soft corks are normal for a wine of some age and may break-up on extraction particularly with a standard corkscrew. We recommend filtering the wine to remove any pieces - this will not affect the quality of the liquid.

We always strive to offer an unsurpassed level of service. If you are happy with our service please tell others. If you are even slightly unhappy please tell us. We are always interested to hear how we might be able to improve - so please contact us with any suggestions or advice.
