Responsible Service of Alcohol
At Vineful we are mindful that selling alcohol brings with it a great responsibility to you and the community. We acknowledge that safe alcohol consumption is ultimately the responsibility of our customers, however it is also our responsibility to abide by the strict policies and procedures that are in place by the Australian government.
We have a commitment to go above and beyond legal compliance to help create an environment that can be enjoyed by all.
Proof of Age Verification
As a part of our commitment to the responsible service of alcohol, we enforce the checking of proof of age identification for our deliveries. We take the responsible service of alcohol very seriously and want to make absolutely sure that we only sell and deliver alcohol to people of the proper legal age (18+). I.D. is required to be shown to delivery drivers, if you look under 25. Please don't take offence if we ask you for I.D - it’s more of a compliment.
Don't Buy It For Them Campaign
Did you know supplying alcohol to a minor can incur a fine of up to $27,500 and/or 12 months imprisonment? For the safety of all involved, we will refuse delivery if we believe that an adult has purchased alcohol for a minor or a person who is intoxicated. No offence is intended, though it is our responsibility to err on the side of caution.
