Aldi wine wins silver medal

0

FANS OF rosé wine had better get themselves down to Aldi this summer because a bottle of the budget supermarket chain’s wine has been voted one of the best in the world.

Aldi’s Exquisite Collection Côtes de Provence Rosé was awarded a silver medal in the International Wine Challenge – and it will set you back just £5.99.

“It has been a huge year for innovation at Aldi,” Tony Baines, Aldi’s joint managing director of corporate buying said. “We’ve not only expanded our sparkling range, but also introduced a brand new French initiative. We have been working closely with renowned winemaker Jean Claude Mas to change perceptions around French wine, which is often perceived as expensive and intimidating, so it is fantastic to see some of these products acknowledged as some of the best in the world.”

This is not the first time a budget bottle of wine has held its own against the more expensive offerings. Last year, a £4.37 bottle of Malbec from Asda was voted the best wine in the world at the Decanter World Wine Awards.
