Wine is delicate, and ever evolving, so whether it is spending a few weeks in a warehouse to settle after shipping, or destined for long term cellaring, storage is paramount to its well-being. After much debate, we have chosen to store the Mayfly Reserves at the exceptional facility that is Vinothèque. Situated in Burton on Trent, an area famed for its brewing, Vinothèque is a 19th century Grade II listed building that was originally constructed as a maltings (which demanded the same rigid conditions as wine). The metre-thick brick walls coupled with state of the art climate control equipment ensure a perfect vinous home.

Mayfly has set up a separate customer storage facility within Vinotheque (a/c MWCRES) where we can happily look after your cases, whether Under Bond or Duty Paid. Your wines will be stored in your name with an allocated 'sub account code'. Storage is invoiced annually in April and charged at cost price : £5.50 per (6x75cl) / £11 per (12x75cl) per year (Inclusive of VAT). Please enquire for further details.
Buying wine ‘In Bond’ can be an alien concept. We list some of our wines ‘In Bond’ simply as they have been imported into our Bonded Warehouse and are yet to have the UK Duty and Vat paid. Anyone can buy a case ‘In Bond’ and store it as such, it is only when the case is withdrawn from the warehouse for delivery that UK Duty will be charged along with VAT (20%) on the original cost of the case.
The current government duty rates are attached below:
Still Wine (5.5%, up to 15%)
@ £26.78 per Case (12) / 9 Litres (£2.23 per btl)
Sparkling Wine (8.5%, up to 15%)
@ £34.30 per Case (12) / 9 Litres (£2.86 per btl)
Fortified Wine (15%, up to 22%)
@ £35.70 per Case (12) / 9 Litres (£2.97 per btl)

The Agreement (“Agreement”, “Contract”)

Your order will be accepted when we take payment from you or issue an invoice for the order.
If we issue an invoice to you then payment will be due from you immediately. The issuing of an invoice by us will constitute acceptance but we shall not be obliged to deliver or make available the wines, goods or products to you until the invoice is settled in full.
Please note that the contract between us and you is conditional on the wines being available for sale to you and coming into our possession and we will be entitled to decline any order at any time up to acceptance in the event that we are unable to secure the wines on your behalf.

ii) to purchase the wines which are covered by the invoice and are in our possession.
Payment will be due immediately that we issue an invoice to you.
We reserve the right to withhold any wines you have ordered for non-payment of any invoice (and for the avoidance of doubt this may include an invoice for other wines or services). We may refuse to release any wines to you until such time as you have made payment for your order in full.

Effect of Cancellation
If you cancel this contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for supplementary costs arising if you chose an enhanced delivery option).

We will make the reimbursement without undue delay and not later than –
- 14 days after the day we receive back from you any wines supplied, or
- (if earlier), 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the wines, or- If there were no wines supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract.
We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the wines back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the wines, whichever is the earliest.
You shall send back the wines without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation from this contract to us. The deadline is met if you send back the wines before the period of 14 days expires.

You are only liable for any diminished value of the wines resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the wines.
Quality and Description
We purchase wines in good faith which meet our quality criteria with respect to provenance and cellarage conditions.
If you are a consumer then we warrant that the wines purchased from us will be of satisfactory quality. If you are a business (“Trade”) then we confirm that we have made reasonable endeavours to ensure that wines sold by us are of satisfactory quality.
We do not warrant taste or drinkability of wines purchased as drinkability and taste are subjective judgements.
With respect to older or high-value wines we will make reasonable efforts to verify the provenance of such wines but we cannot guarantee the authenticity or quality of the wine in the bottle. Older products may age and mature in different ways which may not be to all tastes, and some wines may deteriorate in quality. Opinions as to authenticity and provenance will vary and in many cases even following scientific testing and detailed research it is not possible to establish the authenticity or provenance of a given wine definitively.
We regret that given the nature of the wines we sell we do not provide refunds for corked wines.
Where wines are not (in our opinion) in perfect condition then the wines will be sold at a discount and we will supply (on request by you) a condition report together with photographs and such other information as may be available to us and it will be your decision whether or not to proceed with the purchase based on this information.
Where you have purchased wines from us then you accept that these wines may be subject to defects, imperfections, shortages, damage and normal wear and tear. You accept that wines will be in the condition to be expected having regard to their age, provenance and nature or where we have notified you of any such condition or defect.
We do not accept liability for minor or inconsequential defects or imperfections.
We may provide provenance information to you which has been given to us by our supplier however we are not able to research, test or verify this information. We cannot and do not warrant any such statements.
You accept that given the nature of wines these above terms are reasonable in all the circumstances.
Our liability in any circumstances under or in connection with any sale of wines, goods, products will be limited to the purchase price paid by you for the wines. Our liability will also be limited as set out in Quality and Description.
We will not be liable for any indirect or consequential losses or damages including loss of subsequent contract, lost profit, lost reputation, or loss of anticipated savings.
We will not be liable to you or to any other party following the onward sale of wines by you.
