Aldi Offers Free Wine in Exchange For Reviews

Aldi Wine Club lg3lb9

Fancy being Aldi’s partner in wine? Shoppers will be delighted to learn that doors to Aldi’s Wine Club are once again open.

The supermarket is recruiting thirty wine enthusiasts to trial its NEW range of brilliant wines – for free!

Successful applicants will receive three bottles from Aldi’s upcoming Spring Summer wine range, which launches in stores on 18th March, to test and review over an eight-week period.

All chosen vino lovers need to do in return is share honest reviews of the wines across their social media channels, using the dedicated #AldiWineClub hashtag.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying, Aldi UK says: “We embrace the opportunity to gather feedback from our trusted shoppers.

“It helps the buying team shape wine ranges into what they are – great tasting, award-winning, delivering on both quality and price. We look forward to welcoming the next thirty Aldi Wine Club members on board.”

Mistress of Wine, Sam Caporn says: shoppers can brush up on their wine tasting skills by following the five S’s to tasting wine:

See: “Take a good look into the glass as the colour will give an indication to the style of wine. A deep red will suggest youth and a full-bodied wine, while a pale colour will propose it is lighter and juicier.”

Swirl: “Pour a small measure and swirl the glass anti-clockwise. Swirling ensures a more intense aroma, as it releases what are called 'volatile' aromatics.”

Sniff: “You don't really taste wine, you smell wine - so this stage is important. Take short, sharp sniffs rather than breathing in deeply for a long time.”

Sip: “Sipping is where the magic happens! The aromas in your mouth go up your nose and the wine onto your taste buds, allowing you to appreciate the delicious flavours in the glass.”

Savour: “Now relax, savour those deep flavours that are developing in your mouth and enjoy!”

To be in with a chance of landing the role, budding tasters simply need to send an email to Aldiwineclub@clarioncomms.co.uk with the below details:

  • Full name
  • Proof of age
  • The name of your social media handles and the number of followers for each account
  • 150 words explaining why you think you should be selected as part of Aldi’s Wine Club
  • What your favourite Aldi wine is and why?

Entries are now open until Monday 4th March. To enter now and view the full T&Cs, visit the Aldi Wine Club page ongroceries.aldi.co.uk/en-GB/beers-wines-spirits/wine-club

In its 250-year history, Oxford’s Covered Market has had a rich and varied heritage. Now, in 2024, it has morphed into something of a foodie hot spot and social centre.
