The Oddbins Take

Crete is undoubtedly the home of gods. Sometime in between the big bang and the birth of the automated wine aerator (we're not great with dates) Cronus sired several children with Rhea; including Hera, Hades and Poseidon. However, after their birth Cronus promptly ate them, partly because he was a pet gerbil intent on scarring his owner and partly due to his concern that one of his children would overthrow him. Rhea, unsurprisingly, got a bit fed up with this so when she birthed Zeus in Crete, she gave Cronus a rock in a baby-grow that he also ate, thinking it was his new-born son (not the brightest god in Olympia.)


When Zeus was fully grown he confronted Cronus; cutting open his stomach to release his siblings (and the rock baby) then defeated all the other Titans. This was rather tiring work, hence afterwards he wanted to kick back with some good Cretan wine. Luckily for him, Lyrarakis had just bottled their Muscat, and the enticing floral and grapefruit aromas really helped him get over all the patricide.
History's fun ay?

    £67.50

    From being constantly questioned about your diet, to not knowing which wines you can or can't drink because they don't always put it on the label, we understand that being vegan can sometimes be tiring. We may not be able to help with the former, but when it comes to wine we're your guys! Here at Oddbins, we decided to lend a hand and craft a case of delicious vegan-friendly white wines so you can carry on doing things your way with one less worry.

    If these don't quite cut it for you, our full range of vegan friendly wines can be found here.
