World Cup Wines

Hey! If you don’t have a burning passion for football, but find yourself swept up in the excitement of the World Cup every four years, this blog might be for you...

In it, we predict scores by tasting the wines below and invite you to do the same, to be in with a chance of winning a £50 Oddbins gift card. To re-cap, we’re inviting you to drink wine, watch football and win £50.

Our methods may be unorthodox. Our interest in football may be sporadic at best. But our passion for incorporating wine into any conceivable aspect of life is strong.
