....so we are happy to provide you with free glass loan of Italian Crystal wine glasses (please see terms and conditions below). We have a full range of red wine, white wine, water, Champagne, Port, sherry, beer and soft drink glasses for you to choose from. All we ask is that you pay a fully refundable deposit to protect against breakages and return the glasses to us clean. If washing up doesn't sound like much fun, we'll do it for you at £5 per tray of 24 glasses.
We also offer free local delivery for party and wedding orders and our drivers will happily carry your wines to your kitchen or cellar.
Our drivers are always dressed in our Taurus Wines polo shirts or jumpers, so you'll recognise them when they knock at the door.
Sale or return is available by pre-arrangement with us and generally will cover up to 25% of any one item that you have ordered. On larger orders, where sale or return has been agreed, we'll collect (free of charge) any leftover full bottles, glasses and empty bottles.
Ice and chiller bins are available free of charge as well, as are our giant 'eski' boxes that can keep three large (25lb) bags of our ice frozen for up to five days! All we ask is that you look after the eski (and in some cases pay a fully refundable deposit) and slosh out any old ice and water before we pick it up!
Want to add a something a little bit different to your al fresco party? You can hire our mobile bar unit, including its lovely big parasol, for just £100 + VAT (per 24hrs). This giant 'eski on wheels' can keep drinks cold, or ice creams frozen, for hours, while also having wipe clean, minimally branded sides that allow you to write your own messages, price lists etc on them.
And of course, for the 'street food' style party, you'll add something really special by hiring Brigitte Bordeaux, our beautifully renovated bar van. Brigitte is a 1972 Citroen H Van with original engine and chassis! She's been lovingly restored and is now resplendent with wooden interior, hot and cold running water and ice bins, so she's ready for your party, wherever you want it! Check out www.taurusontour.co.uk for more information and pricing or call Rupert at the shop on 01483 54 84 84.
► Please note that glass loan is only free to customers and only if returned clean. Cleaning (if glasses are returned dirty) is charged at £5 per tray of 24. If you are cleaning them yourself, please not that they must be cleaned to our standard, which requires a dishwasher and proper drying.
► If you have been to Calais or, sniff, another wine merchant and need glasses they are charged at £7.00 + VAT, plus cleaning if applicable.
► Glasses are offered subject to availablility and pre-booking is advised especially in busy periods such as high summer, Christmas and New Year.
For full terms and conditions, please phone the shop on 01483 54 84 84. All breakages must be paid for - prices for breakages are non-negotiable and will be explained to you at the point of hire.
