In case of absence of the addressee, the delivery company will be responsible for leaving a note of passage with the necessary information to agree on a new delivery at the address of the addressee or the necessary indications so that the addressee can pick up the product at a certain place. In any case, after 7 days from the last delivery attempt without the order has been delivered, it will be returned to origin and the contract will be terminated and, consequently, the order will be closed satisfactorily.
4.3. 100% Quality Guarantee
The products marketed through this website have the guarantees offered by the producers of these products. In those incidents that justify the use of the guarantee, the article will be repaired, replaced, reduced or returned, under the terms established by law. The Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007 of 16 November gives a legal guarantee of 2 years from the date of delivery for goods of a durable nature, such as bottles of wine. The consumer and User must inform the seller of the lack of conformity within two months of becoming aware of it.
In addition, MADRID & DARRACOTT S.L. offers an additional guarantee to the User called “100% Quality Guarantee”, on the basis of which, the User has the possibility of returning the different units acquired of a same product if when trying a unit of the same one it was defective.
In this case, the User has a period of 30 calendar days from receipt of the products to request the return of the products, by sending an e-mail to [email protected] and specifying “100% Quality Guarantee” as the subject. The User must state the order number and the products to be returned, as well as detailing the defect(s) found (wine in poor condition, etc).
The User must return the rest of the product units that have not been tasted in perfect condition (not damaged, dirty or opened by the User), correctly protected and, ideally, in their original packaging. After the verification by MADRID & DARRACOTT S.L. of the good state of the products, the amount corresponding to the returned units will be reimbursed in a maximum term of 10 natural days using the same means of payment that the User used for the initial purchase. This guarantee does not extend to the transport costs of the return, which will be paid by the User.
4.4. Selection of the products by the User
Every registered User will be able to contract through the Portal the purchase of products.
The prices of the products are those indicated in the attached description. All prices indicated in the product description are expressed in Euro currency (euros) and include Value Added Tax (VAT).
The purchase process at MADRID & DARRACOTT S.L. is based on a virtual basket, to which the User can add the products s/he wishes to purchase.
To add products to the shopping cart, once the User is in the product description page and selected the available customization options, s/he must select the “Add to Cart” option provided.
The User can access and modify the contents of the basket at any time.
4.5. Order processing
Once the products you wish to purchase are in the shopping basket, the User can start the order process by selecting the option “View Cart”, which will show the User the contents of the virtual basket, allowing the modification of the selected products, their quantities and their removal from the shopping basket.
The User must make sure that the products indicated on the screen are the ones s/he wishes to purchase and establish a valid and relative delivery address. At this point, the total price of the selected products and the generated shipping costs are shown. Also in this section, the User can use the promotional coupons.
If the User wants the billing address to be different from the shipping address, s/he must specify it on the payment page and fill in the corresponding information.
In the next phase of the purchase process, the User must select the payment method. At this point the User is again informed of the exact amount to be paid, resulting from the sum of the price of the products and the shipping costs, net of any promotional discount and/or coupon.
When the order is confirmed, the User will be taken to the selected payment gateway. Once the payment has been processed correctly, the order will be processed automatically, confirming the order information on screen and sending an e-mail to the User confirming the operation.
4.6. Payment method

4.8. Right of Withdrawal
In any case, the buyer will have a period of fourteen (14) calendar days after receiving the Product to exercise its right of withdrawal without having to justify reasons or have any sanctions.
In accordance with Article 102.d) of the Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007, of 16 November, which approves the revised text of the General Law for the Defence of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws, the supply of goods that may deteriorate or expire quickly is not applicable, so the right of withdrawal cannot be exercised on bottles that have been opened, for example, due to rapid deterioration of the content in such cases.
The buyer must declare his intention to withdraw within the specified period and must return the product. You can also use the model withdrawal form available here. Likewise, the User may send an e-mail to [email protected] including his/her name and address, as well as the number of his/her order. You may also contact us by telephone to speed up the process of returning the corresponding amounts.
MADRID & DARRACOTT S.L. will reimburse the amounts paid by the User without any deduction of expenses. However, the cost of returning the product will be charged to the User.
Once the products on which the withdrawal falls have been received and their correct state has been verified, MADRID & DARRACOTT S.L. will return the sums paid to the User within a maximum period of 10 calendar days. The products that do not keep their original packing may suffer a depreciation.
