…THEY SAY ABOUT US…

“Thank you for your fantastic quick service. I ordered this from Australia for my friend over in the UK and she got it within hours of me ordering it! :) Great service. Thank you.” (Tanya N., November 2020)

“I ordered a bottle of Gin for my sister’s birthday yesterday (a Sunday) and was so pleasantly surprised that it arrived today! Also very elegantly wrapped. Thank you so so much for your wonderful service and really brightening up our day. It’s the little things like this that really count when times are tough. Thank you for doing what you do!” (Katy R., March 2020)

“A quick note to thank you for your amazing service and delivery today. Having gone out to dinner last night to Miller & Carter in Hereford for our twin daughters 4th birthday, my husband ordered a glass of Chardonnay and enjoyed it that much he bought a bottle to take home! Today I googled “One Chain The Googly Chardonnay” and your business came up. I didn’t look into the details too much but as it was a good price I ordered a case. With free delivery I had no expectations of a quick delivery. To my surprise a few hours later a gentleman was on our doorstep delivering the wine. Now, Amazon are good but even they’re not that good! The best service ever. We’ll definitely be using you again. Thanks and long may you prosper.” (Steina C., February 2018)

“My Online order arrived today. Wine really well packed and what a speedy service! I will definitely be a returning customer! Thank you and Merry Christmas to all at Hay Wines!” (Lorraine C., December 2015)

“My husband and I along with our two dogs came into your shop today and purchased a bottle of Malbec along with a bottle of Three Choirs White. We also fancied trying something different so asked for a recommendation bearing in mind we liked Malbec. WOW! We are thrilled with our new wine, Passimiento Baglio Gibellina Sicilian red. This is a corker and what a cracking recommendation. Thank you so much we are hooked and will be recommending your shop to all of our friends. Thank you so much!” (Katie H., October 2015)
