The New Icons – Aldi Unveils its Premium Wine Range

aldi sancerreALDI is now enjoying popularity among discerning wine lovers. This supermarket has become celebrated for its collection of good-quality good-value wines, and now a new range caters to the increased demand for premium and classic wines. Enter The New Icons Premium Wine Range.

Examples of famous classic bottles are included in this creditable array. Amongst them are Pouilly-Fuissé and Châteauneuf du Pape (read my review here). Sam Caporn MW, Aldi’s Mistress of Wine, says: “Customers are now more curious than ever when it comes to what they’ll find in the wine aisle and have become more inclined to explore those classic regions. Aldi is known for its great quality wines and this range is the perfect transition for those looking to enjoy the finer things in life, without a hefty price tag!”
