ALDI, one of America’s fastest-growing retailers, is exclusively launching a new, premium wine collection under its “Specially Selected” label. Available from September 8, most of the bottles are priced under $10 and pair perfectly with a variety of new Specially Selected cheese found at ALDI. The Specially Selected Wine Collection is the culmination of 40+ years of experience ALDI has sourcing wine globally, partnering with more than 150 wineries from around the world. All ten bottles were thoughtfully selected by ALDI from longtime partners in distinctive regions including Côtes de Provence, Uco Valley and Marlborough, as well as new partners from respected vineyards in Rioja and Barossa Valley.
“Whether it’s the perfect expression of what Napa Valley has to offer, or an ancestral vineyard nestled in the south of France, the Specially Selected Wine Collection gives consumers a premium tasting experience without the added costs,” said Director of National Buying, Arlin Zajmi. “With the holiday season approaching, these wines are the perfect complement to special occasions like Friendsgiving, holiday parties and birthdays, offering guests a global getaway from the comfort of home”.
