How does buying wines from Aroma of Wine work?
Aroma of Wine provides our customers and clients with unmatched access to the world's finest wines. Some of the wines are available for delivery immediately from our stock and private reserves, and some are available through our ever-growing global network of producers and merchants.
When you select products on our site, you are requesting for us to source and supply them. As soon as you make that enquiry or place an order, we will send a confirmation email containing the reference number, and we will get back to you as soon as possible to inform you when to expect your ordered items.
What is the difference between Marketplace and Immediately Available wines?
The bulk of our listings are available via our global network of producers and merchants – and subjected to a 6-12 week delivery. We strive to get as close to the source as possible, purchasing wines direct from the producer or trusted suppliers whenever possible. We work with suppliers across the globe, giving us unrivalled access to a range of products: we have over 50,000+ discrete listings at any one time.
We also list many immediately available wines held within Aroma of Wine's stockholdings or sourced via our private reservists. We can organise the wine to be delivered immediately upon payment.
Why is there a lead time on Marketplace wines?
Marketplace wines are sourced from a wide range of suppliers globally.
We consolidate shipments, process the wines delicately to avoid damage; an inspection is conducted upon arrival. This process can take between 6-12 weeks. However, please note that the lead time may be significantly faster in most cases, depending on the wines' current location.
Airfreight is available upon request; please speak to your Account Manager; they will advise additional details.
Do you have a minimum order value?
Our minimum order value is $250. Any orders below this might incur a discretionary fee for transportation.
Do you have a retail store?
