General

When will our wine offer expire?

When they sell out! But you’d better be quick…at the prices we offer, they don’t last long.

Will you divulge the name of a Secret Wine before it arrives on my doorstep?

No. Many have tried, and all have failed. Sorry…we keep our promise to the vineyard by not divulging the name, and promise you that it’s worth double what you pay. You wont find out the name of the wine until it’s delivered directly to your door.

Do you have a shop?

No. We are an online wine merchant with no retail store, which allows us to pass the savings on to you.

How old must I be to place an order with JD Cellars?

You must be of legal drinking age in Australia which is 18 years or older.

What is the minimum bottle order per offer?

Unless otherwise stated, the minimum amount you can purchase of any given offer is 6 bottles.

What is JDC liquor licence number?

We hold NSW Packaged Liquor Licence #LIQP770010261

Do you have a Social Media presence?

No. We do not engage in social media. 

Do I need to enter my credit card each time I order wine from JD Cellars?

No. Once you have completed our ONE TIME REGISTRATION process, your order will automatically be processed based on how many bottles you order in our ONE CLICK ordering process.

What is a 'Secret' Wine ?

A 'Secret Wine' is an offer of an unidentified wine. You receive the wine AT LEAST half the recommended retail price, delivered directly to your door, and in return you need to trust us that we hang our reputation on every Secret Wine offer, and only sell the best. You have our word on that.

To protect the wine brand offered, we have an unwriten agreement with our supplier not to divulge the name of the wine or vineyard. The trust is between not only the winemaker and us, but also JDC and our customers.

If I have a specific wine request (outside of your JD Cellars offers), can I ask you to find it for me?

Yes. Simply contact helena@jdcellars.com.au and ask if she can track down the wine you’re looking for, and we’ll do our best to find it, and at an unbeatable price.

Do you accept bank transfers, PAYPAL or cheques?

No. We accept VISA, Mastercard and AMEX (inc surcharge) which is stored securely with your ONE TIME REGISTRATION details.

Shipping

Why charge shipping?

Shipping is an expense we choose not to incur. We have an Australia-wide flat rate delivery fee of $10 per order. As we are a discount wine merchant, we don’t build delivery fees into the bottle price, making your purchase completely transparent. We do not offer free shipping.

My order has not arrived. What should I do?

Unless otherwise stated in our offer, your wine will be delivered within 10 business days of invoice. Deliveries may be delayed when wine is arriving into our warehouse during periods of extended heat or from abroad (you will be notified in advance). You will also be sent an email from Australia Post containing a tracking number. An item can easily be tracked via www.auspost.com.au for an updated status.

For all deliveries you will need to allow 10 business days until contacting us to investigate further. It is recommended you check with your local post office centre if your item has not been received in a reasonable time as they may be holding it for you.

You’ll need to edit the delivery details in your personal profile through our website. Just be sure to change the address back once you return, or all future orders will sent to the last address.

Yes! If you registered and placed your first order using your personal email address you can add your work email as an alternate address. You can do this from the account edit page here

Please ensure your are responding to an offer sent to SAME EMAIL address to which you registered. Additionally, the email must be sent using the same email address. If the links are opening a different email application, see the guide below.

The one click email ordering links aren't working properly

When you click a one click order link, an email compose window should open with a new message. The email must then be sent to submit the order. If successful, you will always be sent an invoice as a confirmation.

 

Sometimes these links don't work if the email client you are using is not setup to open "mailto links". For instance, the link may open in an email application you do not use and ask you to setup a new account. You will need to adjust your computer settings in able to use one click ordering.

 

The below guides will allow you to setup your mail client to open mailto links:

 

Microsoft Windows

Apple OSX

 

If you don't have one of these devices, please email helena@jdcellars.com.au with the following information and we will be happy to assist:

 

1. What operating system (Windows, Mac, Android, etc) ?
2. What email application (Outlook, Apple mail, webmail, etc) ?
3. What email provider (Gmail, Hotmail, internal mail system, etc) ?
4. If using webmail, what browser are you using (Chrome, Firefox, Internet explorer) ?
