Chill And Sip: The Delights of French Wine in the Summer Sun

STELLAR PROMOTION: There's nothing like a summer wine.

France is the location of dreams this summer thanks to the quiet luxury aesthetic circulating online. Strolls on the Riviera, and sipping wine in the sunny South of France sounds just delightful.

But what if there was a way to enjoy a taste of your French summer dreams from the comfort of your own home? Well, now there is.

Centra’s French Wine Sale is now on and runs from June 8th to 28th, the perfect time to stock up for the sunny evenings.

Whether you’re providing the prosecco for the BBQ, bringing along a bottle of  Sauvignon Blanc to pour over garden chats with the girls or pairing a velvety Malbec with dinner, there’s something for every occasion and every wine drinker as reds, whites, sparkling and rosé are all included in the sale.

Tempted? Of course you are, well it gets better. You can pick up some bottles for less than €10… yes, really.

Centra is Ireland’s largest off-licence so there’s no shortage of a selection for shoppers.

Here are a few of the gorgeous wines available in store.
