What to order
If you want to select your own wine, the half bottles option allows you decide how many you want of which half bottle. If you order 12 or more half bottles delivery is free.
halfwine have put together wine tasting packs to enable you to discover your favourite style of wine (and to have some fun with fellow enthusiasts).
If you want to pay a fixed amount each month we have plans (a 'wine club') for a half bottle a week (that is 4 half bottles per month) or 6 half bottles per month. We will deliver a mixed case each time that will vary by the seasons. Or you can select a white or red wine only option. This option will set up a monthly charge to your credit or debit card. You can change, suspend or delete this instruction at any time. Please note that because the price is calculated on on giving you 1 half bottle in 12 free you can't use another discount voucher with an easy plan. (For those of us who add up the price of the individual products to check them to the price of an easy plan, please note there will be a difference. In some months it will be over and in other months under, but over a period of 12 months there will be very little difference, if any, after taking the 1 in 12 free discount into account. The other cause of the difference is that the cost of delivery is built into the price whereas if you ordered the 4 or 6 bottles via the half bottles option you would have to pay a separate delivery charge.)
Place an order
If you press the ‘add’ button next to a half bottle or a pack, it will add it to your basket. However you can't mix an 'easy plan' order with other items because the 'easy plan' has a monthly payment whilst the others have a single payment.
You can amend your basket at any time. You do not have to be logged in to add wines to your basket; only to check-out. Click check-out to pay.
In order to pay you have to have set up an account and be logged in. You will be asked to enter your payment details each time. This is because, to protect you better, we have outsourced everything relating to payments to SagePay; we keep no payment details in our records. If you have a discount voucher you will be asked to enter its number at this stage to claim the discount.
A gift message
If you are sending a gift then on the checkout page there is an option for you to write a personal message to the person to whom you are sending the gift. This message will be printed at the top of the packing slip so that the first thing that the very lucky recipient will see is your message.
Recommend a friend
If you are logged on when you recommend a friend we sill send them an e-mail with a link to our website. If they use that link and then purchase half bottles from us we will credit you with a recommendation. When ten friends have purchased from us you will receive a voucher entitling you to order a tasting pack of your choice for free. Currenty we have credited your account with 2 friends so you only need 8 more.
