We specialise in fine French wines with three Champagne producers and a number of winemakers in the main regions, Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhône and Loire Valleys. We are also pleased to have producers in the Southern regions – Languedoc, Gaillac, Mediterranée and the Oc.
The cost of making the journey and paying the French shop price plus their VAT will make you stop and think. Usually, to make the journey worthwhile, you buy more than your current needs. Having paid for your travel, whether ferry or Eurotunnel, and possibly overnight accommodation, you will note that the actual cost per bottle is no advantage over shopping here in the UK.
After leaving the European Union you will be limited to a smaller personal allowance of wine that you are entitled to bring back.
