Checkers’ popular Odd Bins range of wine won 11 awards - including two Double Gold, eight Gold and one Silver - at the 2021 Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards yesterday, confirming Checkers’ status as a purveyor of unique, South African wines of outstanding quality.

Exclusive to Checkers, the Odd Bins collection consists of limited edition vintages from local wine estates. Carefully selected and given a unique bin number, the original label is kept secret to ensure the wine remains both affordable and accessible – offering the best value and selection without compromising on quality for the past 25 years. Each Odd Bins wine is unique and once the bin is sold out, the number is never repeated so there is always something new to try.
