What is En Primeur?View full Broking List

What is meant by 'En Primeur'?

It means reserving top vintages before they are bottled. By paying an instalment ‘up front’, you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, before the wines are shipped to the UK in Spring 2026.

How does payment work?

Now you need only pay the ‘cellar door’ price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty - around £2.67 a bottle at today’s prices) plus VAT on the total. Delivery (currently £7.99) is also applicable, unless you are a member of Unlimited. Alternatively, you can keep your case stored In Bond or Duty Paid in our state of the art temperature- and humidity-controlled customer storage facility (currently £12.60 per case per year).

The advantages of 'En Primeur' buying

Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn’t enough to go around. En Primeur guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines at opening prices - providing you are quick!

Reservation certificates

Once we receive your order we will send you a Reservation Certificate to your customer address. If the wines you have chosen are SOLD OUT we’ll contact you to advise which are still available.
