  • The wine is stored with your bonded warehousing provider (where possible)

  • We agree a purchase schedule, whereby you acquire the wine from us in stages when you need it, with an affordable service premium

  • The initial deposit / discount is returned / applied pro-rata on each wine sale to you

  • Wine purchases and sale can be made within bond and are rapidly transferred to your ownership upon payment for the wines

  • You can service your customer orders for the wine as usual

  • Warehouse costs, which you would have incurred anyway, will be passed through as an additional cost or incorporated into the service premium as agreed

  • All wines considered
