The temperatures are rising, and the skies are clearing as Australia approaches another sunny Summer.
With the change in season comes a new seasonal drop of ALDI wines perfect for sipping on (responsibly, of course)by the pool, at the beach, or at home under the cooling breeze of the fan or aircon.
At ALDI, premium quality products at an affordable price is at the core of our business, and that rings true with our wines. Featuring low alcohol options, award-winning wines, three brand-new drops, and even bottles with colour changing, thermochromic labels – meaning they’ll adjust their colour when the optimum chilled temperature is reached – there’s something for everyone, and all for under $14.99!
ALDI Wine Expert and Buying Director Jason Bowyer always has his finger on the pulse and is excited to see what customers think of this summer’s offerings.
“Offering high-quality drops at affordable prices is what ALDI has always been about,” says Bowyer. “We’ve continued to monitor the latest trends to find exactly what Aussies want to be drinking this Summer. Customer interest in lighter wines continues to grow, both from an alcoholic and caloric perspective. There’s also a strong desire for vibrant, aromatic, and crisp varieties that echo the Summer season.”
“ALDI’s Summer range is better than ever, and we’re excited to see what our customers think of the variety and value on offer this year.”
Keep an eye out though, as some of these are only available for a limited time!
