The Oddbins Take

So, your family takes over a vineyard when you're a kid, you can't move for wine in your house, and your parents send you away first to work in vineyards and then to a special wine university. You'd be forgiven if your next steps were to ditch the family, move into a squat in Amsterdam and go on a journey of self-empowerment with money your dad had given you.


Karoline and Dorothee Gaul had just that childhood, but they decided that winemaking was far better than squatting, and embarked upon a journey of vinous discovery with a winery their family had given them. And they make uniformly stunning wines, like this elegantly-structured, cherry and blackberry charmer. Power to the sisters!

    The New 'Kids' on The German Block - Mixed Case of 6 Wines

    £99.00
    In recent times it has been the German wine scene that seems to evolve faster than any other. Of course, they're steeped in tradition, you'll still find excellent flute shaped bottles with classic Teutonic labels and funny German terms like Anbaugebiete on them. However, with the current generation of trailblazing vintners producing exceptional, terroir driven wine, with a focus on dryness, modern styles, and with many producers working with organic, biodynamic and minimal intervention practices, German wine is now down right cool. If you're looking for the next big thing in wine, you'll probably find it in Germany and almost certainly in this case of modern German wines!

    Pinot Noir, Ooh La La - Mixed Case of 6 Red Wines

    £84.00
    Legendry American vintner André Tchelistcheff once claimed, "God made Cabernet Sauvignon, whereas the Devil made Pinot Noir." You may feel this is a little harsh on poor old Pinot, what did it ever do to André, did it leave him for a younger, sexier winemaker? No, although, Pinot is known as the heartbreak grape; so difficult to get right, so vulnerable to so many climactic conditions that it has broken many people who decided to plant it in their vineyards. Yet, perhaps no other grape provokes such passion; sensual and seductive, this case of 6 exceptional Pinots will explain why despite the heartache winemakers still come back to woo this fragile grape.
