Pre Arrival Offer

We embrace the classic and historic 'en Primeur' system. It originated in Bordeaux and translates directly to 'of the first'. While in Bordeaux it gives the ability to a buyer to purchase the wine still in barrel, at The French Wine Centre it enables our clients to secure their preferred wines a month or two before the wine arrives on our shores. There is also a significant saving.
