The Oddbins Take

The 'salmon run' usually denotes the perilous annual trip that salmon make to their natal rivers to spawn, as bears, eagles and fishermen gather hungrily at the water's edge. However, the salmon in Marlborough are more savvy and have sprouted legs so they can avoid said dangers.


Whilst they're walking upstream, they often stop by the Giesen winery for a drop of the wine named in their honour. Zesty, strikingly bold, and racy, it is an apt tribute to this most audacious of fish.

    Savvy About Sauvignon - Mixed Case of 6 White Wines

    £70.13

    We thought about giving you a list of facts about sauvignon blanc to get you clued-up on the popular grape, but that would have been a bit too obvious. Instead, we've taken a more practical approach to the lesson..

    This mixed case of white wines has been crafted to include a variety of different sauvignon blanc's for you to guzzle, gargle and compare notes to your hearts content. Though, as ever, you only need to ask if you want to know more of the nitty-gritty bits and we'll be happy to oblige.
