The Oddbins Take

The world was mighty different in 1917 what with the trench warfare, Siegfried Sassoon poetry and gentlemanly manors. Back then if you were celebrating 100 years of living, you could expect a telegram from the Palace, these days you're lucky if you get a tweet (nostalgia's not what it used to be). When her majesty turns 100 do you reckon she'll write to herself?


When Oddbins turns 100, we require no royal letters or other forms of anachronistic correspondence. Nope, we just want a bottle of this; the anniversary Glorioso is harvested from specially selected vineyard parcels, so only the ripest, most concentrated grapes are picked. The wine is then aged for a minimum of 13 months in French oak. The resulting wine is a celebratory explosion of redcurrants and blackberries layered on top of a smooth palate of menthol, black pepper and cinnamon.


We can't guarantee stocks will last 100 years though, best be safe and buy a few bottles now...

    Glorioso, if you don't know, has a markedly more elegant house style. This is really a rather special gift set combining two wines that are perfect with food.

    Classic Old Worlders - Mixed Case of 6 Wines

    As low as: £67.50

    As much as we love the avant-garde, there is unquestionable charm in the classics. For every evening we’re in the mood to see a musician that has a dollar sign in their name, staying at home with a Miles Davis vinyl feels just as appealing. The same is true with wine, we love the experimentation of the New World but sometimes we want a wine that can trace its birth back to an 8th century monk with a thirst on. This case is filled with timeless wines, from across the great vine-growing regions of Europe.
