Delivery in France

We can deliver orders to any address in France. Delivery is free for 36 bottles or more - see Tariff. The address can be your permanent or second home address, but could also be a gîte or hotel where you intend to stay. If necessary we’re happy to liaise with owners on your behalf to arrange delivery.

Orders can be sent by post, email, fax or telephone, payment by cheque (€) or credit/debit card. There is an order form to print and use if you wish. We are sorry that, for the moment, we have no facility for direct internet ordering.

Pick up from Calais

We can deliver to a depot near Calais from where you can pick up your order at your convenience. This enables you to make a day trip, or pick up when passing through Calais en route elsewhere. If you live in the UK, you benefit from the waiver of customs duty on returning home – a considerable saving. For 36 bottles or more we deliver free to the depot; there is a charge of 6.50€ per dozen bottles by the depot, who will keep the order for up to a year if necessary.

Direct from Domaine du Garinet

We sell a lot of our wine direct from the property. If you’re visiting south-west France, you will be most welcome to visit us to taste, to ask questions, look at the vines and chai, and to buy wine and our other products. See Contact/Visit for our opening hours and map for directions. We take all major credit and debit cards.

On Sunday morning you can find us at Montcuq market throughout the year.

Delivery outside France

At present, the difficulty for individuals of handling customs formalities means that it is inadvisable to have retail wine purchases sent outside of France, especially to the UK with its high rates of duty. For trade customers there is normally no problem.

However, our wine is carried by specialist wine merchants in a few countries in Europe – please call or email us for contact details.

Walnut and Prune Products

These are mostly sold locally, but we can arrange to deliver non-perishable items if required. See  Walnuts & Prunes  for a complete price list.

A Note on Deposits in Bottles

Natural deposits can form in bottles during aging. It’s possible to reduce or even eliminate them during winemaking by heavy fining or filtration, or by various additives at bottling. We prefer to fine and filter lightly and avoid unnecessary additives, so some deposits may occur, especially in red wines after a few years bottle age. Two kinds of deposit are possible:

- tartrate deposits, especially if the wine is stored in a cold cellar, or spends a lengthy period in a fridge. These take the form of heavy crystals that sink very quickly to the bottom of the bottle after pouring, and are therefore not too difficult to avoid getting in the glass;

- a fine dark-coloured deposit in red wines after aging. This is the natural result of the aging of the wine – there is less in barrel-aged wine because it is bottled later and more of it is eliminated in the barrels. For wines with several years bottle age, it is best to decant to prevent the last glass from becoming cloudy.

We hope our customers understand that these deposits are entirely natural, and are a sign of a wine that has not been over-processed to be squeaky clean but lacking in character.
