Buying wine in bulk in France
9 Feb 2006 by JR
Bill Phelan, London: My daughter and that of a friend are each getting married this summer.  I would like to enquire how we might purchase 30 cases (of 12 bottles) of good but inexpensive champagne direct from a vineyard for our respective wedding receptions? And after that similar quantities of good red and white wines - say about 10 euros a bottle - to accompany the feast with fishy starter and lamb main course. If it is possible, can you advise on prices?  We would arrange to visit in March or April to collect the wine and bring back personally to London to avoid UK taxes and VAT. Looking forward...
