Aldi wine festival bolsters range with 25 limited-edition lines

15 August, 2016

Aldi has added 25 limited-edition wines to its range as part of the retailer’s inaugural on-shelf wine festival.

The retailer, which won Wine Retailer of the Year at OLN’s Drinks Retailing Awards 2016, has sourced the wines from across 14 countries and five continents.

They start at £4.99 and go up to £8.99, including a Nero d’Avola from Sicily, Pinot Gris from Gisborne in New Zealand and Riesling from Baden in Germany.

Aldi is the star performer in the off-trade wine division, growing sales ahead of its rivals – with the category up 7% in the past year (Kantar).

Tony Baines, joint managing director of corporate buying at Aldi, said: “Our core range is growing in popularity day by day. We constantly aim to excite and exceed our customers’ expectations and are delighted to be introducing shoppers to 25 new, exceptional wines from the world’s greatest winemaking regions this summer. Our talented team of expert wine buyers have curated a range that embodies innovation, quality and outstanding value for money. 

“The Aldi Wine Festival continues our philosophy of helping to make quality wine accessible to all, whatever the budget. This new collection is another step change for us and takes us one step closer to being the UK’s foremost wine retailer.”

The Aldi Wine Festival range will be available online at aldi.co.uk and in stores nationwide from Sunday, August 21, available while stocks last.
