Award Winning Wine

Welcome to Oddbins Award Winning Wine, Champagne and Fortified Wines. Whilst we take great care to ensure all of our range over-delivers on price, it's always nice to get some objective feedback, so we thought we'd group together all our independently commended wines in one place.
Here you'll find the products in our range that have scooped commendations from:

  • IWC (International Wine Challenge);
  • Decanter;
  • IWSC (International Wine and Spirit Competition).

  • We are pleased to have been awarded High Street Chain of the Year 2014 at the International Wine Challenge awards, which we feel recognises our commitment to sourcing great wine.

    1. Chateau Ksara Reserve du Couvent Red Wine

      Château Ksara Reserve du Couvent 2014

      £12.00

      £12.00

      ***Bronze at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

      "Who will have won when the soldiers have gone… from the Lebanon?" One answer to the Human League's question might well be the wine drinkers of the world. Soil climate and a history of French colonialism combine to make the Lebanon one of the most surprising, yet consistently excellent producers of Bordeaux and Côtes du Rhône style wines anywhere in the world. And if you're looking for a wine to go with richly herbed and spiced slow roasted lamb, then we have a clear winner.

    2. Martin Codax Burgans Albarino Spanish White wine

      Martín Códax Burgans Albariño 2016

      £12.50

      £12.50

      This little gem is really, really worth knowing about. There is a distinctive style of fresh, sea-licked, zesty-white in Galicia that, frankly, makes us wildly excited. We defy anyone who serves this wine with some simply-cooked seafood and a dose of sunshine, to not fall in love, ditch their current boyfriend/girlfriend/mates/dog and move to Spain to shack up with Martin Codax. To know it is to love it.

    3. Longview The Whippet Sauvignon Blanc Australian Wine

      Longview 'The Whippet' Sauvignon Blanc 2016

      £13.50

      £13.50

      ***Commended at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

      Well. When we got into the business of selling wine, little did we imagine that we would become the go-to business for Whippet lovers nationwide. But, for obvious reasons, Longview winery’s Whippet Sauvignon Blanc has gone down a storm with the canine-loving community.

      Thankfully, it happens to be a cracking little wine too. Racier than a Whippet in a field of sheep, it is bursting with gooseberry, asparagus and nettle flavours.

    4. Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Pinot Noir 2015 Vegetarian Red Wine

      Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Pinot Noir 2015

      Now £14.50

      Was £16.00

      £14.50

      The ridonculously talented Matt Thompson, at Saint Clair, featured on one of our 'Inspire-themed posters, saying 'I became a winemaker because, as a wine drinker, I needed to find a way to make it tax-deductible'. We like his style.

      But, when he made this red, he didn't just get a tax break on Pinot Noir, he created something beautiful: a gentle giant, with mellow Morello cherry, pine needles and hints of smoke. Take that, taxman!

    5. Longview 'Yakka' Shiraz 2015 Vegetarian Red Wine

      Longview 'Yakka' Shiraz 2015

      Now £14.50

      Was £16.50

      £14.50

      ***Silver at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

      This wine takes its name not from the Aussie slang for hard work, although judging by its magnificently rich, sturdy and swarthy character, you’d wager they had put a lot of work into it. Nope, this wine takes its name from the striking Australian grass shrub, pictured on the label, which also reveals the producer’s love for their homeland and this, too, shines through in this terroir-driven wine, whose dense, ripe black cherry and white pepper flavours show off the warmth of the Macclesfield micro-climate.

    6. Château Coussin Rosé 2016 Vintage Wine

      Château Coussin Rosé 2016

      £15.00

      £15.00

      Human lives are full of eureka moments. These run the gamut from the earth-shattering "the world is not flat" or "he/she is the one" kind to the smaller but no less revelatory discoveries of chipotle Tabasco or the Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V commands on a keyboard.

      This delicate looking wine lies somewhere in between, because it's unequivocal proof that rosé can be incredibly serious stuff. It carries the poise, elegance and flawless complexion of Grace Kelly and then explodes with pink grapefruit, passion fruit, strawberry sorbet and lemon sherbet.
