The French Wine Centre are importers of some of the finest wines of France.
We are a direct to consumer retailer; selecting, importing and retailing directly to the public and venues that pride themselves on offering quality French wines to their customers.
This business model was created by Mr Ross Duke, our founder, who brought the finest French wine into Australia for almost 50 years. Ross was one of the few who pioneered fine French wine in Australia.
Jonathan Hersey is humbled to have been selected to succeed Ross Duke at the French Wine Centre, and will continue the great tradition of bringing fine French wine to Australia.
The French Wine Centre has always been known for their special Pre-Arrival offers. When limited number releases are secured from vineyards in France we notify our mailing list members immediately, before the allocation leaves France. Often these releases are highly sought-after, so act quickly if you want to secure something special.
By purchasing in advance, you are assured of the best possible price on a scarce product. The lead time is between 2 and 3 months from purchase to arrival, taking into account transport from the vineyard to port, shipping, customs and Australian delivery. You must register as a member to receive these offers, and don’t delay!
All wines in our climate-controlled cellar are available from our website.
Members receive a considerable saving and we highly recommend joining!
