Terms, conditions and policies

Terms and conditions of bookings and events

All attendees at events hosted by the Sydney Wine Centre must be at least 18 years of age and respect our strict adherence to RSA principals.

Alcohol will not be served to anyone under 18 years of age.

Payments are accepted in AUD only.

Bookings are completed when an online booking form has been completed or telephone order placed, payment made (or voucher redeemed), and a confirmation email has been sent confirming the booking.

Cancellations, changes and refunds

If you are unable to attend an event after making a booking you may use the value of the booking to transfer to any other event provided at least 7 days notice is given. If bookings are cancelled or changed within 7 days, the following applies: 

  • Notice given at least 3 days (i.e. over 72 hours notice prior to event) - 50% of the fee paid can be used as credit for a future event
  • Notice given less than 3 days (i.e. within 72 hours of the event) - no refund can be promised.

Having said that, we will endeavour to replace you and if we are able to find a full paying replacement, then no amount of value will be deducted when transferring to a future event.

If for some reason an event is cancelled you will be given a full refund.
