This week we want to talk to you about our website’s birthday, the Budget and Portugal.We’ve chosen three people of dubious trustworthiness to help us out...

Mr Armstrong has been stripped of his wins. But nobody is taking our recent win from us. Last week we were presented with an award by His Excellency the Portuguese Ambassador [we were a little disappointed not to receive any Ferrero Rocher, maybe they aren’t so popular in Portugal – Ed]. A spokesman for the Association of Portuguese Wine Importers said that: “We are delighted to have presented Oddbins with the Award for Best Specialist Chain at the Portuguese Wine Awards this year. Oddbins have embraced the diversity of Portugal over the last twelve months, going out of their way to introduce unique grape varieties and terroirs to their customers.” To try our award-winning Portuguese wines get yourself down to one of our shops or pick some up by clicking here.

Only five sleeps until the Budget. Luckily George W Bush will not be involved. Instead we have George Osborne. Is that better or worse? We are running a poll to find out what you think. Do you think the Chancellor of the Exchequer will turn the economy around or bury us deeper? Read our take on it in our blog by clicking here and take part in our opinion poll. And we’ve even thrown in a special Budget related discount on our Torre Oria Cava Reserva and Casa Lluch Tempranillo for you.

Like Paris Hilton we like to celebrate in style, although maybe not quite so lavishly. A little over a year ago we launched our current website, it now officially one year old. As we were in the party mood we’ve put together a very special case of our most exciting wines, including some chosen by our wine buyer, our staff, you and the winner of our national amateur tasting competition, The Palate 2012. But that didn’t seem like enough so we knocked 20% off it for good measure. Grab your case while stocks last by clicking here.
That’s all from us, now go and find some more trustworthy people to mingle with…
…there are loads in Oddbins’ shops.
