General terms & conditions

Wines shown in our shop are available in our own cellars or, in some cases, can be ordered from our suppliers within a few days.

Vintages mentioned in the title of the product are always correct - in some cases images in the shop may show a label with an incorrect vintage and customers should rely on product names and not on what is shown in images. Images in the store are not usually of the actual bottle we have in our cellars. On request we can send you photos of the actual bottles you are interested in ordering. Please contact us on maarten@all-wines.com.

Should we, in rare cases, no longer be able to supply a wine you have bought, we may offer a different vintage as a replacement at your choice or will alternatively refund your payment.

The Netherlands "margin rule" applies to many wines on this website meaning that they are sold including 0% VAT. Please don't hesitate to get in touch in case you have any questions.

All-Wines only sells to customers who are 18 years or older. By accepting these terms & conditions at the time of purchase, you confirm that you are of legal drinking age.

Article 3 - Applicability

  1. These general terms and conditions apply to all offers by the company and all distance contracts concluded between the company and the consumer.
  2. The text of these general terms and conditions will be made available to the consumer prior to the conclusion of the distance contract. If this is not reasonably possible, prior to concluding the contract the company will indicate the manner in which the general terms and conditions can be inspected at the company’s premises, and that these can be sent to the consumer on request as soon as possible and at no charge.
  3. If the distance contract is concluded electronically, in derogation to the previous subclause and prior to the conclusion of the distance contract, the text of the general terms and conditions may be made available to the consumer electronically in such a manner that these can be easily stored by the consumer on a permanent data carrier. If this is not reasonably possible, it will be indicated prior to the conclusion of the distance contract where the general terms and conditions can be inspected electronically, and that these will be sent on request to the consumer electronically or in another manner at no charge.
  4. If specific product or service conditions terms apply in addition to these general terms and conditions, the second and third subclause will correspondingly apply and in the event of conflicting conditions the consumer will always be able to rely on the applicable provision that is most favourable to them.

 

Article 4 - The offer

  1. If an offer has a limited period of validity or occurs under conditions, this will be specifically stated in the offer.
  2. The offer comprises a full and accurate description of the products, digital content and/or services offered. The description is sufficiently detailed to enable the consumer to properly evaluate the offer. If the company uses images, these are faithful reproductions of the products, services and/or digital content offered. Obvious mistakes or errors in the offer do not bind the company.
  3. All offers contain sufficient information such that the rights and obligations attached to the acceptance of the offer are clear to the consumer.

 

Article 5 - The contract

  1. The contract is formed at the moment in which the consumer accepts the offer and satisfies the associated conditions, subject to the provisions of subclause 4.
  2. If the consumer has accepted the offer electronically, the company will immediately confirm receipt of the offer electronically. The consumer may terminate the contract as long as the company has not confirmed receipt of this acceptance.
  3. If the contract is formed electronically, the company will take the appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the electronic transfer of data and will provide a secure web environment. If the consumer is able to pay electronically, the company will observe security measures that are appropriate for this purpose.
  4. The company may obtain information within statutory parameters as to whether the consumer is able to meet its payment obligations, as well as any facts and factors that are significant for the responsible conclusion of the distance contract. If on the basis of this investigation the company has firm grounds to not conclude the contract, it is entitled to reject an order or request with motivations, or attach special terms and conditions to the performance.
  5. No later than the moment at which the product is delivered, the company will send the following information to the consumer in writing, or in such a manner that the consumer can save it on a permanent data carrier in an accessible manner:
  6. the visitor’s address of the company’s business location where the consumer can direct complaints;
  7. the terms and conditions under which the consumer can exercise their right of withdrawal or a clear notification concerning the exclusion of the right of withdrawal, and the manner in which they can do so;
  8. information about guarantees and the service that exists following purchase;
  9. the price, including all taxes on the product, service or digital content – the delivery costs, where applicable – and the method of payment, delivery or performance of the distance contract;
  10. the requirements for terminating the contract if the contract has a term of more than a year or has an indefinite term;
  11. if the consumer has a right of withdrawal, the standard withdrawal form.
  12. In the event of a continuing performance contract, the provision in the previous subclause only applies to the initial delivery.

 

Article 6 - Right of withdrawal

For products:

  1. The consumer can terminate a contract for the purchase of a product during a cooling-off period of at least 14 days without providing reasons. The company may ask the consumer for the reason for withdrawal, but the consumer is not under any obligation to provide reasons.
  2. The cooling-off period referred to in subclause 1 enters effect on the day after the consumer, or a third party designated in advance by the consumer, but not the carrier, has received the product.
  3. if the consumer has ordered multiple products in the same order: the day on which the consumer, or a third party designated by the consumer, has received the final product. The company may reject an order for multiple products with different delivery times provided it has clearly informed the consumer about this prior to the order process.
  4. if the delivery of a product consists of various consignments or parts – the day on which the consumer, or a third party designated by the consumer, has received the final consignment or part;
  1. contracts concerning a regular delivery of products during a specified period – the day on which the consumer, or a third party designated by the consumer, has received the first product.

 

Article 7 - Obligations of the consumer during the cooling-off period

  1. During the cooling-off period, the consumer will carefully handle the product and the packaging. The consumer will only remove the packaging or use the product to the extent this is necessary for determining the features and operation of the product. The criterion here is that the consumer should only handle and inspect the product as they would in a shop.
  2. The consumer is solely liable for any reduction in the value of the product that results from handling the product in a manner beyond that permitted in subclause 1.
  3. The consumer is not liable for any reduction in the value of the product if the company has not provided the consumer with all of the legally required information about the right of withdrawal prior to or when concluding the contract.

 

Article 8 - Exercising the right of withdrawal by the consumer and the associated costs

  1. If the consumer exercises their right of withdrawal, they will notify the company during the cooling-off period using the standard withdrawal form or in another unambiguous manner.
  2. The consumer will return the product as soon as possible, but no later than 14 days from the day following the notification stated in subclause 1, or they will deliver this to the company or an authorised representative of the company. This is not required if the company has offered to collect the product. The consumer has observed the return period in any event if they return the product before the expiry of the cooling-off period.
  3. The consumer will return the product with all its accompanying accessories, in the original condition and packaging if reasonably possible, and in accordance with the reasonable and clear instructions issued by the company.
  4. The risk and the burden of proof for the correct and timely exercise of the right of withdrawal lies with the consumer.
  5. The consumer will bear the direct costs of returning the product. If the company has not notified the consumer that it must bear these costs or if the company has indicated that it will bear the costs, the consumer does not have to bear the costs of returning the product.
  6. If the consumer withdraws after first expressly having requested the performance of the service or the supply of gas, water or electricity that was not ready for sale in a limited volume or a set quantity during the cooling-off period, the consumer will owe the company an amount in proportion to the part of the obligation fulfilled by the company at the moment of withdrawal, with respect to the full fulfilment of the obligation.
  7. The consumer will not bear any costs for the performance of services or the supply of water, gas or electricity that was not made ready in a limited volume or quantity before sale, or for the supply of district heating if:
  8. the company did not provide the legally required information to the consumer about the right of withdrawal, the reimbursement of costs in the event of withdrawal or the standard withdrawal form;
  9. the consumer did not expressly request the commencement of the performance of the service or the supply of gas, water, electricity or district heating during the cooling-off period.
  10. The consumer will not bear any costs for the full or partial delivery of digital content that is not supplied on a physical data carrier if:
  11. prior the supply, they did not expressly consent to the commencement of performance of the contract before the end of the cooling-off period;
  12. they did not acknowledge the loss of their right of withdrawal when granting their consent; or
  13. the company failed to confirm this declaration by the consumer.
  14. If the consumer uses their right of withdrawal, all supplementary contracts will terminate by operation of law.

 

Article 9 - Obligations of the company in the event of withdrawal

  1. If the company enables the consumer to electronically notify their withdrawal, it will immediately send a confirmation of receipt upon receiving this notification.
  2. The company will immediately, and at least within 14 days following the day on which the consumer gave notification of their withdrawal, reimburse all payments to the consumer, including any delivery costs charged by the company for the return of the product. Unless the company offers to collect the product, it may delay repayment until it has received the product or until the consumer demonstrates that they have returned the product, whichever occurs first.
  3. The company will make the refund by the same method of payment used by the consumer, unless the consumer agrees to use a different method. The refund is free of charge for the consumer.
  4. If the consumer has opted for a more expensive method of delivery than the cheapest, standard delivery, the company does not have to refund the additional costs for the more expensive method.

 

Article 10 - Exclusion from the right of withdrawal

The company may exclude the following products and services from the right of withdrawal, but only if the company has clearly indicated this with the offer, or at least in good time prior to concluding the contract:

  1. Products or services whose price is linked to variations on the financial market that the company is unable to influence and which may occur during the withdrawal period.
  2. Contracts that are concluded during a public auction. A public auction is defined as a sales method in which the company offers products, digital content and/or services to the consumer who is present in person or has the opportunity to be present in person at the auction that is conducted by an auctioneer, and where the successful bidder is under the obligation to purchase the products, digital content and/or services;
  3. Service contracts, following the full performance of the service, but only if:

  6. Package tours as provided under Book 7, Section 500 of the Dutch Civil Code and contracts for passenger transport;
  7. Service contracts for the provision of accommodation, if the contract envisages a specific date or period for performance, with the exception of contracts for residential purposes, carriage of goods, car rental services and catering;
  8. Contracts related to leisure activities, if the contract envisages a specific date or period for the performance.
  9. Products manufactured according to the consumer’s specifications, that are not pre-fabricated, and which are produced on the basis of an individual choice or decision by the consumer, or which are clearly intended for a specific person;
  10. Products that spoil quickly or which have a limited shelf-life;
  11. Sealed products that are not suitable for returning due to health protection or hygiene reasons and whose seal has been broken following delivery;
  12. Products that owing to their nature become unavoidably mixed with other products following delivery;
  13. Alcoholic drinks whose price was agreed when concluding the contract but which can only be delivered after 30 days and whose actual value depends on market fluctuations upon which the company has no influence;
  14. Sealed audio and video recordings and computer software whose seal is broken after delivery;
  15. Newspapers, journals or magazines, with the exception of subscriptions;

Article 11 - The price

  1. During the period of validity stated in the offer the prices of products and/or services on offer will not be increased, except where price alterations result from changes in VAT rates.
  2. Contrary to the previous subclause, the company may offer products or services whose prices are linked to fluctuations on the financial market and upon which the company has no influence by using variable prices. The offer will state this link to fluctuating prices and the fact that any stated prices are for guidance purposes.
  3. Price increases within 3 months of the formation of the contract are solely permitted if they result from statutory regulations or provisions.
  4. Price increases from 3 months after the formation of the contract are only permitted if stipulated by the company and:

Article 12 - Compliance with the contract and extra guarantee

  1. The company warrants that the products and/or services fulfil the contract, the specifications stated in the offer, the reasonable requirements of soundness and/or usability and the statutory provisions and/or government regulations that exist on the date of the formation of the contract. If agreed, the company also warrants that the product is suitable for purposes other than normal use.
  2. An additional guarantee issued by the company, its supplier, manufacturer or importer does not limit the statutory rights and claims that the consumer may make vis-à-vis the company under the company if the company has failed to observe its side of the agreement.
  3. An additional guarantee is defined as any obligation by the company, its supplier, importer or manufacturer that grants specific rights or claims to the consumer beyond those which it is under a legal obligation to provide in the event that it fails to observe its side of the agreement.

 

Article 13 - Delivery and performance

  1. The company will take the greatest possible care when receiving and processing product orders and when evaluating requests to supply services.
  2. The place of delivery is deemed to be the address that the consumer has informed the company.

In such an event, the consumer has the right to terminate the agreement at no cost and has the right to compensation where applicable.
  4. Following the termination of the agreement in accordance with the previous subclause, the company will immediately refund the amount paid by the consumer.
  5. The risk of damage and/or loss of products lies with the company until the moment of delivery to the consumer or to a designated representative who has been indicated to the company in advance, unless specifically agreed otherwise.

  3. The consumer is under the obligation to immediately report any inaccuracies in the payment details it has provided or stated.
