The Oddbins Take

Everyone agreed the old horse-drawn cart was just the vehicle to transport the Pinot grapes from vineyard to winery, but they failed to take into account the antique craftsmanship. The suspension springs were fashioned from the tough, ungiving wood of the Manuka tree, and the poor Pinot was jostled so roughly the grapes began to split. As the sun hit the broken berries, a deep aroma of warm raspberries rose from the cart and the juice began to ferment. Happily, however, the resulting wine was so elegant that to this day the first crushing is done driving the grapes round in that very same old cart.

    If you drop in to my house on a weekday evening it's probably one of these you'll be offered first. These are wines I think have the particular versatility and interest to drink on a regular basis but won't break the bank, though maybe taste a bit like they might. Wine rack winners!

    Summer is here, the sun is out and it's time to dig out the BBQ from the back of the shed. Once you've dusted off the cobwebs and invited some friends and family over for a party, you're then stuck with the question of what drinks to buy. Mum likes a drop of prosecco, but Sharon likes a spot of rosé, and white wine is a must-have, but Dave always likes a glass of red wine in the evening. And, of course, you'll need some beers to fill your free hand whilst manning the grill...

    Whether you're hosting or simply don't want to turn up empty handed, this selection of our go-to summertime drinks is certain to have something to please everyone at the BBQ.

    Pinot noir is a sensitive little grape. Notoriously difficult to grow, it is mostly associated with the Burgundy region in France. However, despite it's fragile nature, it is one of the most popular grape varieties going and is grown all over the world to be used in a huge variety of fantastic wines.

    From Germany to South Africa, Chile to Romania, New Zealand to France (of course!), we've put this case of light-bodied red wines together as an introduction to pinot noir to show the different styles that can be found across the world.
