The Oddbins Take

For many South African citizens, the small fishing village of Doringbaai on the West Coast, 300km north of Cape Town, seemed like the ideal holiday destination. Beautiful coastal scenery combined with cooling Atlantic breezes made the town one of peace and tranquillity. There was but one problem for the residents of Doringbaai: a giant octopus angered by the eccentric and unreasonable requests of Aquaman sought to take it out on all humans. Every couple of weeks it would tear down their lighthouse and then attempt to marry a brightly coloured fishing trawler.

Sick of perpetually rebuilding lighthouses, the people of Doringbaai sought an amnesty with the sea creature. In an attempt to mollify it, they poured the beast a glass of local red wine. A blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre, light bodied with a sweet nose of red berries, combining spiced and herbaceous notes. The red wine was so lifted and elegantly aromatic, the octopus and the people of Doringbaai became the best of friends, whilst Aquaman had to learn to do his own ironing.

    Most agree that it's unwise to judge a book by its cover, that's what lead us to think Animal Farm was an appropriate bed time story for children… The Stalinism allegory went straight over their little heads! However, on this page you'll find the wines that you certainly should judge by their labels, for the artwork adorning these bottles is as beautiful as the liquid inside them. With bottles as stunning and stylish as this, who needs gift wrap?
