Budget supermarket chain Aldi has lowered the prices of some of its most popular wines by 25% in time for Easter.
The retailer’s specially selected Gavi, specially selected Coteaux Varois en Provence Rosé de Provence and specially selected Argentinian Malbec are all available for under £ 5 – the perfect time to refuel for the bank holiday weekend.
The Specially Selected Gavi is a beautifully balanced white wine with a fresh taste and floral notes – ideal as an aperitif, to be enjoyed on its own or with one or two deliciously indulgent Easter eggs. Usually priced at £ 6.69, this sweet Italian wine is on offer for £ 4.99 – while supplies last.
Coteaux Varois en Provence Provence Rosé is made in the heart of Provence and offers delicate layers of strawberry, red cherry and raspberry flavors with a hint of herbs.
It goes wonderfully with fish, grilled meats and vegetables; the perfect accompaniment to a lighter Easter lunch, and available to purchase for £ 4.99 – down from £ 6.49.
Argentinian Malbec is a bright and intense ruby red wine with youthful purple reflections and aromas of plum and blackberry with subtle hints of violet.
This full-bodied wine is also available for just £ 4.99, down from £ 5.79.
Meanwhile, Aldi launched the UK’s very first supermarket wine school to help turn wine bluffs into wine lovers. Budding connoisseurs can brush up on their knowledge with free access to the online education center, which includes two new wine modules, as well as a range of expertly curated tips and tricks.
A study commissioned by the supermarket shows that 91% of wine drinkers nationwide admit bluffing their knowledge of wine to impress friends and family and 70% want to know more about their favorite drinks.
Aldi Anti-Jargon Wine School offers pressure-free learning for all and is accessible at Aldi.co.uk/aldi-wine-school.
It includes “A Guide to New World Wines,” which explores new and emerging wine regions, and a “Food and Wine Pairing” master class – perfect for those who are simply looking for the best wine to match their food.
Buyers will also have access to a series of guided tasting videos and live tutorials from wine expert Sam Caporn and TV presenter Jilly Goolden.
