Sainsburys Calais France, Wines, beers, spirts

Found 12th May 2010

Has any one used the Sainsbury Calais wine ordering, just had a look and there appears to be some pretty good deals e.g. Box wine Hardy's Banrock Station Shiraz Mataro 3L £7.69.

I guess I have to factor in petrol and ferry crossing, but I could get alot of booze in a zafira, anyone had any experiences they would like to share, or can suggest a better wholesaler over there
Thanks now

It sounds ridiculous. Why would you use it?

well the box of wine I quoted above is around £17 in tescos but its under £8 from Sainsburys, just thought I could get around 100 boxes in my boot, but wouldnt bother if it had bad reviews etc
but why would you order and wait 100 days when you can just drive to france, nip to the nearest store/shop/sainsburys hypermarket - what ever you wanna call it and purchase whatever you want lol ?
I havnt done a trip like this for sometime, but from memory Tesco was better value. Thats in city europe. I didnt think there was much of a saving to be had these days though. Good luck.

Lots of info on here!
