If you are not going to be available to take delivery, please state a safe place where we can leave the wine and we will do so. Alternatively, if you are not home and you have not specified a place to leave the wine, our driver will leave a card and so that we can arrange a more convenient delivery time.

If we have not attempted to deliver your wine within 7 working days of you placing your order we will credit your House of Townend account with the full delivery charge to be discounted from your next order. An attempted delivery is defined by the driver has been to your delivery address and left a card when nobody was in.
