The Ultimate Buyer’s Guide to Aldi Wine
Aldi is a phenomenal spot to pick up inexpensive bottles! Here's the Aldi wine to shop for, according to a sommelier.
La Cornada Crianza Tempranillo
This killer Aldi wine is a crianza style tempranillo, meaning it was aged for two years, with six months of that time spent in oak. The result is a juicy, vibrant wine with lush black fruits wrapped in spice. La Cornada pairs with everything from chicken to pork, but it’s truly gorgeous with a succulent lamb burger.
Giretto Pinot Grigio
Giretto’s pinot grigio hits all the right notes. A hint of tropical fruits underscores green apple and citrus notes. Ripe but dry, this is everything pinot grigio should be—crisp, easy-drinking and with a wonderful amount a character considering its price point. You won’t want to miss this one!

Grande Alberone Rosso
Full of delicious dark fruits, vanilla, spice and just a touch of earth, the Grande Alberone Rosso fits the bill when you’re in the mood for a wine with a bit of heft. Ideal for stews, BBQs or cheese platters, this red blend is a wonderful everyday wine.
Grandi Mori Prosecco
Let’s be real. A bottle of bubbly is always a good option, no matter what the occasion. For those moments when you want to pop open some sparkling wine on the cheap, reach for a bottle of Grandi Mori Prosecco. Made in the extra dry style (which means it’s slightly sweet), this DOCG-level Prosecco knocks it out of the park with all sorts of eatsm from slightly spicy fare to light desserts and even potato chips!
30 Miles Cabernet Sauvignon
A super classic Napa cab for a steal? Aldi delivers again with 30 Miles cabernet sauvignon. Plenty of dark fruit with layers of vanilla, spice and cocoa powder. Serve a glass of 30 Miles with game, grilled meat or a savory mushroom dish.
Flirty Bird Sauvignon Blanc
Flirty Bird sauvignon blanc hails from Spain. A little ripe citrus, a touch of stone fruit and melon—Flirty Bird hits the spot as a porch wine. Its light character means it’s a great partner for chicken, fish and salads, too.
Burlwood Sparkling Extra Dry
Burlwood’s extra dry sparkling wine is yet another wickedly good bottle of bubbles that will put a smile on your face. It has a kiss of sweetness, so be sure to serve it up with spicy appetizers or fruity pastries. That said, it’s delish enjoyed all on its own!
Broken Clouds Chardonnay
If bigger, full-bodied white wine is more your speed, pick up a bottle of Broken Clouds chardonnay next time you’re hitting the aisles at Aldi. Another award-winner, this chardonnay boasts ripe tropical fruit notes, baking spices, butter, vanilla and cream. Definitely one for shellfish, heftier fish like halibut or cod and simple chicken dishes.
