The five seasonal wines in Aldi’s new collection are diverse in terms of regions and styles; regardless of your personal wine taste, you’re likely to find a match for your preferences. Options include a Spanish Rioja Reserva and an Australian Shiraz for fans of red wine; a French Sparkling Brut Rosé and an Italian DOCG Prosecco for those who like bubbly; and a Canadian Icewine, which is a sweet wine made by allowing grapes to stay on the vine into winter, freezing them and increasing their sugar content and flavor when squeezed.
The seven different cheeses available are also representative of a variety of different styles, from aged, strong cheeses, such as Farmhouse Blue, to the milky-soft and mild Burrata. The store also carries Mobay, an award-winning offering made with a mix of sheep’s milk and goat’s milk, separated by a line of ash and grape vine. These cheeses naturally pair well with many of the aforementioned wine offerings. If you’re on the lookout for an easy appetizer or snack for guests while entertaining this holiday season, you can pick up a bottle of wine and a cheese or two for $20 to $25 (or less).
