Mills Reef Winery works closely with a leading distribution company that specializes in the shipment of alcohol. Delivery can be expected within four working days of receipt of the order. We only deliver within New Zealand; if you reside overseas please contact your local/ national Mills Reef Winery distributor.
Mills Reef Winery strives to keep the prices of its products as low as possible. We do not subsidise the delivery cost by inflating the price of the product. Delivery charges are dependent upon the location of the order recipient and the size of the order. Freight for North Island orders is charged at $8 for 1-11 bottles. For orders over 12 bottles there is no freight charge. Freight for South Island orders is charged at $15 for 1-11 bottles. For orders over 12 bottles it is charged at $10 for each 12 bottles (case) or part thereof. For example, an order of 12 bottles will have a $10 freight component; an order of 18 bottles will have a freight component of $20. If you are collecting your wine from the winery there is no delivery or freight charge added to your order (please just specify this when it comes time to checkout).
Claims for Breakages
Upon receipt of your order, you should carefully inspect it to make sure that it is intact and in full. The courier must be informed of breakages or shortages at the time of delivery. We will not accept any claims for breakages or shortages unless they are stated on the couriers' documentation. We must have confirmation of these breakages or shortages within 7 days of the delivery.
Damage in Transit
If bottles are broken or damaged in transit to you, the damaged goods must be returned to us. Shipping costs for the damaged portion of the delivery back to us is at our expense - customers must contact us to arrange the return shipping. Mills Reef Winery can only credit customers for the items that have been damaged upon safe receipt of the products into our hands.
