    A bit of a long shot this, but not been able to find info on their website. Last year we stocked up on our favourite tipple of Gallo family Cabernet Sauvignon at the tunnel terminal. Does anyone know if it's still available there, especially in boxes (why carry the glass which gets thrown away). Foreign wine is not something you see much of in French supermarkets.

    I am sure that @scousebird Roving Kent Reporter will be onto it and will get back to you with an answer as soon as possible.

    I know this does not answer your question............... but seriously.... why go to France and hope to buy Californian wine??

    Branch out a little, take a risk, but the French stuff........... it will be nicer and kinder to your pocket as well as your taste buds :)

    We always buy lots of French wine but if we get the chance to get some of our favourite at an attractive price (half that of the UK) then we will. Taste is always subjective of course but price isn't!

    Last time we came through the tunnel they were still selling Gallo wines in the Calais shop. It is regularly on offer. As for what "flavour" is available I can't help with that one. :wine:

    You really need to think about buying french. So much nicer and makes sense to buy it where it's grown. Some lovely provincial roses for under 5 euro. Bordeaux stunning choices. Great chablis, Sancerre etc.
