Liquor Licensing & Responsible Service of Alcohol

At Stocked Cellar, we recommend that wine lovers enjoy our wines responsibly. Wine is best when enjoyed in moderation. It is against the law to sell or supply alcohol to, or to obtain alcohol on behalf of, a person under the age of 18 years. If we have reason to believe that a person ordering wine is not 18 years of age or older, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel the order.

If you purchase products from Stocked Cellar, you warrant to us that:

  • you are over the age of 18 years; and

  • any person that you are obtaining the products for, or supply the products to, is over the age of 18 years

You agree that you will only register one account as a user. Instances of multiple accounts per user will result in the additional accounts being closed, and any credits attached to that account will be cancelled.

Online Store Content

It’s our aim to keep the website as up to date as possible, however, we can’t guarantee the content. Any images, specifications or information particulars published on the website in connection with wines or merchandise are provided for identification only and are subject to change without notice.

Deliveries and Unattended Deliveries

Deliveries will be made to an address nominated by you which must be communicated to Stocked Cellar (“the Nominated Address”).

Anyone at the Nominated Address who receives the goods shall be presumed by Stocked Cellar to be an authorised person to receive the goods and it your responsibility to ensure the authorised person who is over the age of 18 (“Authorised Person”) is present at the Nominal Address at the time of delivery.

Delivery will be deemed to have taken place when the Goods are delivered to the Nominated Address (“Delivery”).

Delivery of the Goods to a third party nominated by you is deemed to be delivered to you for the purposes of this agreement.

At Stocked Cellar’s sole discretion the costs of delivery may be in addition to the Price.

Stocked Cellar shall not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever due to failure by Stocked Cellar to deliver the Goods (or any of them) promptly or at all due to circumstances beyond the control of Stocked Cellar, nor shall such delay entitle you to consider this Agreement repudiated.

We currently deliver to all metropolitan areas around Australia excluding the Northern Territory. Should you require delivery outside of these areas, please contact Stocked Cellar directly to discuss delivery and relevant costing’s.

Timing

We know that you will be eagerly awaiting the arrival of your Stocked Cellar, and we will endeavour to get them to you as quickly as possible. Orders usually arrive 10-14 days after purchase. If you would like to arrange express delivery, please contact Stocked Cellar directly.

While Stocked Cellar will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver by any agreed date, it does not guarantee delivery on that date and is not liable for any loss resulting from an alternative delivery date.

Product availability

All products are ‘while stocks last’. If a product ordered is out of stock, we will offer you an alternative, or issue a full refund.

All specials, promotions, clearances, offers and discounted items advertised on the Stocked Cellar website are available only while stocks last unless otherwise advertised.

Pricing & Promotions

The product, prices and promotions offered on our online store only apply to Australia and are subject to change. The prices are all shown in Australian dollars inclusive of GST. Prices will either be per bottle or per case as stated. Delivery charges are shown separately and are not included in the displayed product pricing.

Stocked Cellar’s prices are subject to variation – the price payable for the goods is the price applicable on the date when Stocked Cellar confirms your order.

GST and other taxes and duties that may be applicable shall be added to the Price except when they are expressly included in the Price.

Payment

We currently accept Master Card, Visa, American Express and Direct Deposit. If the issuer of the card or the owner of the account does not authorise the transaction or later revokes authorisation for the transaction, Stocked Cellar reserves the right to cancel the order. Stocked Cellar will not be liable for any payment transactions which are later identified as unauthorised.

By using the store you warrant that any banking details provided by you are true and correct and that you are authorised to charge the relevant payment to that account. If payment is made via credit or debit card, you warrant that card details provided by you are true and correct and that you are authorised to charge the relevant payment to that card. You must indemnify Stocked Cellar from and against any loss or damage, it suffers in connection with a breach of this warranty.

Risk

If Stocked Cellar retains ownership of the Goods nonetheless, all risk for the Goods passes to the purchaser on Delivery.

If any of the goods are damaged or destroyed following Delivery but prior to ownership passing to you, Stocked Cellar is entitled to receive all insurance proceeds payable for the goods. The production of these conditions by Stocked Cellar is sufficient evidence of Stocked Cellar’s rights to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with Stocked Cellar to make further enquiries.

Where you expressly request Stocked Cellar to leave Goods outside Stocked Cellar’s premises for collection or to deliver the Goods to an unattended location then such Goods shall be left at your sole risk and it shall be your responsibility to ensure the Goods are insured adequately or at all.

You acknowledge that all wines are susceptible to change and expiration when kept under improper and/or unreasonable conditions. Such conditions include, but are not limited to, extreme heat, extreme cold or direct sunlight. Stocked Cellar shall not accept any liability for accidents due to inappropriate wine selection, maintenance or carelessness.

Title

You and Stocked Cellar agree that ownership of the Goods shall not pass until:

  • You have paid Stocked Cellar all amounts owing to the particular Goods; and

  • You have met all other obligations due by you to Stocked Cellar in respect of all contracts and agreements between you and Stocked Cellar; and

  • When the goods have been Delivered.

Receipt by Stocked Cellar of any form of payment other than cash shall not be deemed to be payment until that form of payment has been honoured, cleared or recognised and until then Stocked Cellar’s ownership or rights in respect of the Goods shall continue.

It is further agreed that:

  • Until such time as ownership of the Goods shall pass from Stocked Cellar to you, Stocked Cellar may give notice in writing to you to return the Goods or any of them to Stocked Cellar. Upon such notice you right to obtain ownership or any other interest in the Goods shall cease; and

  • Stocked Cellar shall have the right of stopping the Goods in transit whether or not delivery has been made; and

  • If you fail to return the Goods to Stocked Cellar then Stocked Cellar or Stocked Cellar’s agent may(as the invitee of yourself) enter upon and into land and premises owned, occupied or used by you or any premises where the Goods are situated and take possession of the Goods; and

  • You are only a bailee of the Goods and until such time as Stocked Cellar has received payment in full for the Goods then you shall hold any proceeds from the sale or disposal of the Goods, up to and including the amount you owe to Stocked Cellar for the Goods, on trust for Stocked Cellar; and

  • You shall not deal with the money of Stocked Cellar in any way which may be adverse to Stocked Cellar; and

  • You shall not charge the Goods in any way nor grant nor otherwise give any interest in the Goods while they remain the property of Stocked Cellar; and

  • Stocked Cellar can issue proceedings to recover the Price of the Goods sold notwithstanding that ownership of the Goods may not have passed to you; and

  • Until such time that ownership in the Goods passes to you if the Goods are converted into other products, the parties agree that Stocked Cellar will be the owner of the end products.

Defects

You agree that it is your duty to inspect the Goods on delivery and shall within forty-eight (48) hours of delivery (time being of the essence) notify Stocked Cellar of any alleged defect, shortage in quantity, damage or failure to comply with the description or quote in writing.

You shall afford Stocked Cellar an opportunity to inspect the Goods within a reasonable time following Delivery if you believe the Goods are defective in any way.

If you shall fail to comply with these provisions the Goods shall be presumed to be free from any defect or damage.

For defective Goods, which Stocked Cellar has agreed in writing that you are entitled to reject, Stocked Cellar’s liability is limited to either (at Stocked Cellar’s discretion) replacing the Goods or repairing the Goods except where you acquired Goods as a consumer within the meaning of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Commonwealth) or the Fair Trading Acts of the relevant state or territories of Australia, and is therefore also entitled to, at the consumer’s discretion either a refund of the purchase price of the Goods, or repair of the Goods, or replacement of the Goods.

Stocked Cellar will accept no responsibility for Goods that have already been opened or modified.

Returns

Returns will only be accepted provided that:

  • You have complied with the provisions of clause n above;

  • Stocked Cellar has agreed in writing to accept the return of the Goods; and

  • the Goods are returned at your own cost within thirty (30) days of the delivery date; and

  • Stocked Cellar will not be liable for Goods which have not been stored or used in

  • a proper manner; and

  • the Goods are returned in the condition in which they were delivered of the current batch, and with all packaging material, brochures and instruction material in as new condition as is reasonably possible in the circumstances.

Stocked Cellar may (at their sole discretion) accept the return of Goods for credit but this may incur a handling fee of up to ten percent (10%) of the value of the returned Goods plus any freight costs.

Non-stockist items, Goods of second quality, discounted Goods, or Goods made to your specifications are under no circumstances acceptable for credit or return.

Without prejudice to any other remedies, Stocked Cellar may have, if at any time you are in breach of any obligation (including those relating to payment) Stocked Cellar may suspend or terminate the supply of Goods to you and any of its other obligations under the Conditions. Stocked Cellar will not be liable to you for any loss or damage you suffer because Stocked Cellar has exercised its rights under this clause.

Nothing in these terms and conditions purports to exclude or modify the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) or the Fair Trading Acts of the relevant state or territories of Australia.

Cancellation

Stocked Cellar may cancel any contract to which these Conditions apply or cancel delivery of Goods at any time before the Goods are delivered by giving written notice to you. On giving such notice Stocked Cellar shall repay to you any sums paid in respect of the Price. Stocked Cellar shall not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever arising from such cancellation.

In the event that you cancel delivery of Goods then you shall be liable for any loss incurred by Stocked Cellar (including, but not limited to, any loss of profits) up to the time of cancellation.

Cancellation of orders for Goods made to your specifications or non-stock list items will definitely not be accepted, once the order has been processed.

General

If any provision of these Conditions shall be invalid, void, illegal or unenforceable the validity, existence, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected, prejudiced or impaired.

These Conditions and any contract to which they apply shall be governed by the laws of, and are subject to, the jurisdiction of the courts in the state of Victoria.

Stocked Cellar shall be under no liability whatsoever to you for any indirect and/or consequential loss and/or expense (including loss of profit) suffered by you arising out of a breach by Stocked Cellar of these terms and conditions.

In the event of any breach of this contract by Stocked Cellar the remedies available to you shall be limited to damages which under no circumstances shall exceed the Price.

You shall not be entitled to set off against, or deduct from the Price, any sums owed or claimed to be owed to you by Stocked Cellar nor to withhold payment of any invoice because part of that invoice is in dispute.
