Why Cambridge Wine Merchants?
Our experience and commitment to finding quality clarets at good prices has made us one of the foremost suppliers to Cambridge and Oxford Colleges, as well as to private customers. Our selection is always based on quality and we work hard to ensure we taste and re-taste a broad range of samples before finalising our portfolio.

What is En Primeur?
It involves purchasing wine shortly after it has been made, some time before it is bottled, at a lower price than the finished article. Many wine estates often release a proportion of each vintage for payment up front at a lower price to ease their cash flow. These wines tend to be allocated in small quantities to loyal customers. Cost savings can be impressive, our advice always impartial and expert.

You will also benefit from staggered payments. You pay for the wine now, but you only pay the UK alcohol duty and VAT charges when the goods are delivered, typically two years after sale.

Conditions of Sale:
En Primeur wines are sold in cases of 6 x 75cl or 12 x 75cl. Prices are quoted ex duty and ex VAT and do include delivery to our UK warehouse. Duty, VAT and onward delivery charges (where applicable) will apply when the wines arrive in 2018/19.  Offers are subject to availability.
