Intercontinental Wines Ltd adheres strictly to a condition code regarding all wines.

In the case of most older wines, the colour should be deemed acceptable.

In the event that wines are corked or out of condition for consumption, it will be at the discretion of Intercontinental Wines Ltd that replacements be made available, without obligation. We do not purchase US strip-labelled stock or stock that has been shipped back into Europe from the Americas or Asia unless otherwise specified or specifically requested.
