The ever-changing range of Aldi wines is well-worth seeking out. The discount retailer’s range has arguably gone from strength to strength since the launch of its e-commerce wine site back in January 2016, and it now offers a mix of seasonal selections plus a core year-round offering.
Last year it launched its Classic Icon range – a selection of more premium wines which cover many bases for any wine lover, including a white Rioja, an Austrian Grüner Veltliner and a Barbaresco. This summer the supermarket launched 10 new rosés, capitalising on the massive and climbing popularity of pink wine. These include a magnum of Provençal-style rosé for just £12 (see recommendations, below).
While the majority of Aldi’s wines can be found both on the supermarket’s website and in-store, some are online exclusives and only available while stocks last.
