Christmas! It is closer than you think – around eight weeks in fact. Are you ready? Presents wrapped? Tree ordered? Menus prepared? Wine bought?
Obviously we can’t help wrap the presents or trim the tree but we can help with the wine either as a gift or for your own enjoyment. No problem.
You could be buying some of our fantastic wines for as little as £4.25 per bottle if you fancy a quick trip to France! Choose from our range of fresh dry whites, pale pink rosés or succulent reds all produced by our wine maker Mathieu Crosnier and a small dedicated team in the rolling fields of the Côtes de Duras in France.
You can save duty on our award winning Sauvignons, our delicate perfumed Rosé or our soft juicy and smooth Cabernet Merlot by picking them up from our warehouse in Calais. Wines cost £3.70 less when you pop over the Channel to Calais. You get the same £3.70 saving on our Réserve Range of aged Sauvignon Semillion 2012 or Merlot Cabernet 2011 that come in at just £7.25 a bottle. And to get the party started, don’t forget our Sparkling Rosé – a Grand Mayne favourite fresh with fine bubble and a refreshing taste of strawberries priced in Calais at just £6.60 a bottle.
And there is no better time to travel now that the ferries and tunnel are off peak with ferry prices starting from as little as £35 each way (approx. 90 minutes) and tunnel prices from as little as £30 each way (approx. 35 minutes).
Why not make a day of it by having lunch at one of the many excellent restaurants in Calais. The top one on Trip Advisor at the moment is the Aquar ‘Aile which as well as first class cuisine has views over the beaches and out across the channel. For the full Travel Advisor top ten listing go here
There are also bargains to be had. Head for the village of Coquelles to visit Cité Europe and for designer bargains Marques Avenue Factory Outlet may be just the ticket. And finally stock up your larder French style with jams, meat, charcuterie and fresh seafood.
Check the prices for our whole range before ordering online and collecting from the very friendly family run English speaking Franglais Vins which is a short seven minute drive from the ferry terminal and only a two minute drive from the tunnel. They are open seven days a week and as well as stocking Domaine du Grand Mayne wines you can take the opportunity to stock up on beers and ciders.
But if none of this is for you then you can order now for free delivery to anywhere in the UK any of our wines starting at just £7.95 a bottle for the Varietal Range or if you fancy a treat for Christmas just £10.95 for our Réserve Range. And if you want to get the party started then opt for our Sparkling at just £8.99 a bottle.
