We've been looking for a good deal on wine for our wedding in August. We went…to Majestic [to taste before we travelled to Calais]. The staff were friendly, approachable and most importantly knowledgeable. They listened to what we wanted, were interested in our points of view and showed us how to get the most out of the tasting as well as ensuring we got the best value for money. An incredibly pleasant and enjoyable experience

As if unbeatable savings, incredible travel offers and competitive Click & Collect discounts weren’t enough to entice you to visit us in Calais, our network of UK stores offer you the unique opportunity to try nearly our entire range before you set foot across the Channel.
Not sure which wine to choose or how much to order? Want to be sure that bargain you saw online actually tastes as good as the tasting note suggests? Our expert UK staff are here to help!
If you want to try before you buy duty-free there are a couple of options available:
Tasting in store
7 days a week every UK store will have a minimum of 6 different wines open to try. These often include wines which are available in Calais. However, if you would like to try some Calais-specific wines then you can organise a tasting in advance, giving the UK staff the chance to double check which wines are also available in France and to chill down a couple of bottles! While we won’t be able to offer an unlimited number of wines to try free in store, the UK store staff are always happy to flex those WSET qualifications and help you make the best choice for your budget.
Samples to take home
If you want to try more wines then the UK staff can help you select a bottle or two to take home. This way you can supplement what you taste in store with a couple of extras, or make sure that that great value Sauvignon or Malbec is definitely the right choice. After all, doing a tasting at home with some of your friends is one of the perks of organising a wedding or important party! It’s also a great opportunity to try out some food and wine pairings - for some suggestions check out this page.
