Are French on-line wine retailers up to regulation speed?
Last week I looked at some UK on-line wine retailers to see who had changed their Terms & Conditions to come into line with the new pan-EU regulations covering distance selling. It was a mixed picture.
Today on Les 5 du Vin are the results of a similar exercise looking at 25 on-line retailers in France. Of these 10 offer the correct 14 days cancellation period after delivery, while 15 are still only offering 7 days, so do not conform with the current legislation. Those not conforming include some of the best known on-line wine companies such as idealwine, Millésima, Nicolas and Savour Club.
