Reviewing a wine this morning where Oddbins was listed as a stockist, I find, as so often happens, that there is no sign of it on their website. That also made me think that it is literally years since I had any communication from them: no invites to press tastings, no samples offered, no news whatsoever. I know they have struggled from one financial crisis to another, but I can't help feeling there is something pretty terminal feeling about the whole operation these days. I do hope someone from Oddbins reads the forum and comes on to tell us of their bright and sunlit future. I wish them well, as I have for four decades now.
