Delivery charges will be confirmed during the checkout process if you order online or prior to your Order being processed if you place a telephone or email Order.

6.4 If you have any problems with your purchase, we can offer help and assistance. Please Contact Us.
6.5 Your rights under UK or your national consumer legislation are not affected by these Terms.

7 AVAILABILITY
Please remember that our Products are agricultural and stocks run out from time to time and therefore are subject to availability. If for any reason we are unable to supply a particular Product we will notify you and offer a similar Product as a replacement. If you do not wish to accept a replacement Product, you may cancel your Order. Deliveries to Northern Ireland may attract a higher tariff due to post-Brexit restrictions.

8 SERVICES

If you have booked a tour and/or or wine tasting event and you wish to cancel or re-arrange your session then please contact us. If you notify us more than twenty eight (28) days prior to your event date then we will offer to re-arrange your session or offer a refund for the ticket price. If you notify us within twenty eight (28) days prior to your event date then we will try to accommodate your request. However, this will be subject to the availability of alternative dates and we may deduct from your refund. If you have booked a ticket for a tour or wine tasting event and you do not arrive for your scheduled booking, then the tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded, unless at our discretion. Any request for a refund or transfer must be made in writing, directed to info@oastbrook.com. If we cancel your booking in its entirety, you will be entitled to a full refund for the purchase price. Tickets will be exchanged or refunded at the price paid for them, but no further compensation will be paid.

You are purchasing product(s) that are deemed non-returnable, unless such Product(s) were damaged or faulty when delivered to you or have been incorrectly delivered. In these circumstances you can return them (where requested) and receive replacement goods or receive a refund from us. Please note once you have paid for your order, it cannot be amended, changed or cancelled.

You must, where requested, return defective products to us within 14 days after the day of notifying us, in the same condition in which you receive them. If you have not returned the Product(s) within 14 days of cancellation or provided photographic evidence of the damaged goods when requested by us to do so, whichever occurs first you will forfeit your right to a refund. Should you item be returned to us due to non delivery your order can be refunded (minus the delivery charge) or we can re-deliver, however you will need to pay a redelivery charge.

You must ensure that you take reasonable care of the Product(s) while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right to deduct the cost of any deterioration, up to the price of the Product(s), from the refund to which you are otherwise entitled. All refunds will be made by us within a reasonable time from the receipt by us of the Product(s). Where you paid for the Product(s) by a credit or debit card, refunds will be made by re-crediting your bank account from which the money was originally debited.

10 OUR CANCELLATION RIGHTS
10.1 We reserve the right to cancel any Order for any reason by informing you in writing. If your Order is cancelled we will contact you to let you know and will refund any money you have paid us in respect of the Order.

11 OUR LIABILITY TO YOU
11.1 Subject to clause 11.2, if we are in breach of these Terms, we will only be responsible for any losses that you suffer as a result to the extent that they are a foreseeable consequence for both of us at the time you make the Order. Our liability shall not include business losses such as loss of profits, loss of business or business interruption. In any event, our liability to you shall be limited to the value of the Order.
11.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors, for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or for any other liability it is unlawful to exclude or limit.
11.3 Given the nature of the Products please do remember that their maturation is a variable process and some Products may no longer be at their peak at their time of consumption. Should this be the case, it will not amount to a breach of warranty.
11.4 Other than as stated elsewhere in these Terms, all warranties, conditions and terms expressed or implied, whether by statute, common law, custom, trade usage, course of dealings or otherwise in respect of the Products are hereby excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. Nothing in these Terms shall affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

12 AGE RESTRICTION
12.1 By placing an Order you confirm you are of at least 18 years old.
12.2 To comply with the law, we can only deliver wine and other alcohol purchases from us to persons over 18 years old. Upon delivery, we may require you to sign for your Order to confirm your age. We operate a “Challenge 25” policy which means that, even if you are over 18 years old but look under 25 years old, you should expect to be asked for some proof of age at the point of delivery.
12.3 Deliveries to your address are fulfilled by a 3rd party courier. If, upon delivery, there is no one at the delivery address to receive your Order or if the third party reasonably suspects the signee is under 18 years old we will not be able to leave the Products.

13 EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
13.1 We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under these Terms that is caused by any circumstances beyond our reasonable control although we will take reasonable steps to minimise the impact of any such circumstances. And to the extent that such circumstances do occur and continue for a period of more than 28 days either of us may cancel the Order by giving the other notice in writing.

14 OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
14.1 We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation, and we will always notify you in writing if this happens, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.
14.2 This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
14.3 Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
14.4 If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
14.5 These Terms are governed by English law. If you live in England, you agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
