Who says sipping on quality wine has to be an experience reserved only for the wealthy? As we’ve covered before, dropping a few hundred dollars on a bottle of vino is fine – if you’re about that life – but certainly not necessary for a premium tasting experience. ALDI’s award-winning wine has proven that.

In some pretty thrilling news for lovers of quality wine and lovers of a bargain alike, ALDI Australia’s wine range has not only walked away with a nod at the Melbourne International Wine Competition – two bottles took out the top award.

The Bordeaux Les Maurins Sauvignon Blanc 2020, priced at a stunning $6.99 received Double Gold at the competition and the South Point Estate Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir NV, priced at – wait for it – $4.99 also received Double Gold.

Jason Bowyer, Wine Buying Director at ALDI Australia said of the news that:

“We are thrilled that our award-winning wines have been recognised yet again among the highest quality drops available in Australia.

“Produced locally and abroad by our network of loyal partners, these awards are a testament to their hard work and dedication. We share the same goal in offering a collection of diverse wines so our Aussie customers can enjoy top shelf quality wine at amazing prices.

“These awards complement what consumers have voted on with ALDI Winning ‘Best Liquor Retailer’ in this years’ Canstar Awards. So, whether you prefer a refreshing bubbly, white or rose, or a deep, rich red – the one thing we can all agree on is that satisfying feeling of knowing you’re saving and getting awesome value the same time!”
