Odd Bins - the best kept secret in the wine world

 Have you discovered the secret of Odd Bins? If you have, you’re already enjoying some of the best wines for less. If not, then read on.

Odd Bins is a range of wines exclusive to Checkers. But what makes it so special?

Well, every now and then, Checkers sources limited quantities of famous wine brands. These are then carefully selected by a panel of experts, including the likes of Jan Boland Coetzee and Michael Fridjhon, and only the best of the batch are each given a unique bin number and made available to you.

And because they vow to keep the original label a closely guarded secret, they can bring it to you at a fraction of the original price. But once the bin is sold out, the number is never repeated.

Discover the secret for yourself. Right now, we’re loving Bin 956, a delicious Cabernet and Merlot blend which has an attractive sweet raspberry nose with firm tannins and oak on the palate.

Also don’t miss out on the lovely unwooded Chardonnay in Bin 318, full of fresh flavours of apple and citrus with a nutty finish.

The wine inside the bottle is kept a secret – but once tasted may reveal itself!

Odd Bins have been impressing the palates of wine drinkers all over the country and have even won a few awards – including Best Value and Michaelangelo awards.

These are the perfect wines for big occasions or to keep around the house for last-minute guests. And since there are always new bins arriving, there is always something new to try.

So, now you know the secret to enjoying famous wine brands at a fraction of the price – simply visit the Wine Route department in your nearest Checkers.
