I have generally found the wines to be of good quality and service Ok. However, I have recently had occasion to regret recommending The Australian Wine to a friend. He recently bought some wine which he found unsatisfactory and emailed asking for a refund / replacement as is offered in advertising. However, after having sent 3 emails he has not received a single acknowledgement. VERY POOR - seems to indicate that the advertised replacement policy is just a sham.
Excellent speed of delivery
Couldn't fault the service - from the time I ordered to the order tracking to the time it hit my doorstep. Would rate it 5 stars if there was some more premium Australian and International wine options
Wine is good, after-sales service is non-existent
Have bought many cases and always been happy with the quality of the wine. Two weeks ago I responded to an offer that included a free magnum if you bought two cases from the "Champions" range. The magnum didn't arrive with the cases so I emailed asking why. The brochure did say there was a limited stock of the magnums but I wasn't alerted to any unavailability as I placed my order. I emailed asking why I didn't receive the magnum but two weeks later I still haven't had a reply. I get rather disappointed with any business that is extremely eager and ready to communicate when generating new business but completely ignores you when there's a problem.
effective complaint system
I received my shipment to find my 3 free wines had been substituted for a less expensive wine that I hadn’t tasted before as apparently the wine I should have got was low stocks this was soon sorted out as it was not my fault

Questions & Answers
Hello, can someone from The Australian Wine please explain how my order has been sent to the wrong address 3 (THREE) times and I have still not received any tracking number to track my delivery. Could someone from Australian Wines please explain how it takes a month and numerous phone calls and online chats to receive a case of NOTHING?? Can someone from The Australian Wines please explain how there is no accountability or management intervention when a customer repeatedly has to chase up an order placed and paid for weeks earlier. No communication, no intervention and no idea how to treat customers - that must be the mission statement from this poorly managed company. Here's a philosophy you might need to adopt going forward with your poorly structured business - "If you don't look after your customers, someone else will".

Hi there, we ordered the 14 wines with two glasses and have not received our order. It was well over a week ago and when on the website it says we have no current orders. I’d appreciate a prompt response considering we paid $120 for not much. Thanks.
I totally agree with you. It happened to us as well. My husband called twice and couldn't get a clear answer.
