Risks & Warnings

Customers should also be aware of the following inherent risks and warnings:

  • Alcohol should be consumed in moderation and never in conjunction with operating a motor vehicle or machinery.  Women should not drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects.  Alcohol consumption may cause health problems.
  • A case of wine is heavy, so extra care should be taken when lifting it. If you are concerned about the weight we advise that you transfer the bottles 1 or 2 at a time.
  • Red wine in particular may cause staining if spilt, so extra care should be taken.
  • Sparkling wines can be volatile due to the build up of gasses. Extra care should be taken when opening these.

Responsible Service of Alcohol

ID25 Policy – Proof of age verification

As a part of our commitment to the responsible service of alcohol, we enforce the checking of proof of age identification. We take the responsible service of alcohol very seriously and want to make absolutely sure that we only sell alcohol to people of the proper legal age (18+). To be on the safe side I.D. is required if you look under 25. Please don’t take offence if we ask you for I.D. Think of it more as a compliment because you look under 25.

Intoxication Policy

We cannot sell or supply alcohol to a person who is intoxicated so we will refuse service if we believe you are intoxicated.

Secondary Supply Policy – Don’t buy it for them

Secondary supply is the most common way young people obtain alcohol; this is where an adult purchases alcohol on behalf of a person under the age of 18. It is against the law to provide or supply alcohol to a minor on a licenced premises. We will refuse service if we believe an adult is purchasing alcohol on behalf of a minor or will supply alcohol to a minor. We will do the same if we believe the purchase is for an intoxicated person. If we overhear a conversation between an adult and minor or an intoxicated person, or witness any actions that suggest the purchase is for the minor or an intoxicated person, we will refuse the sale. We will always err on the side of caution in the interest of safe and responsible service of alcohol.

Know your limits

Measuring spirit nips when pouring from a bottle is very important to drinking responsibly. A 30ml spirit nip (40% alc/vol) is the equivalent of one standard drink and it is very easy to go over the standard drink limit if not using measures. If in doubt, please refer to the alcohol volume percentage on the label. If the alcohol volume varies, so will the standard drink measure so calculate your measures carefully.

We encourage you to seek out information regarding the appropriate use of alcohol, and hope that your enjoy our wines.
