Aldi – Best in Glass

Over the last year discount retailer Aldi has teamed up with food magazine Bon Appétit for a few different projects  – like this one…and this one! After such a fruitful partnership, they decided it was time to shake things up at the Bon Appétit offices with a little surprise….

The “Best in Glass” secretly put Aldi wines in the glasses of happy hour participants and guess what – they liked the wine.

To recreate this happiest of happy hours pick a few bottles from below – they’re all under $13.

Broken Clouds Pinot Noir
With exquisite and distinctive flavors of strawberries, raspberries and allspice, this California wine pairs well with beef dishes or goat cheese.

Outlander Meritage
This complex red boasts depth of flavor with notes of plum, blackberry, anise and vanilla. Perfect with a big ol’ bowl of pasta and tomato sauce.

Kelly’s Crossing Sauvignon Blanc
Sweet fresh fruit flavors and well-balanced acidity make this crisp white wine one of our very favorites. Sip it with light dishes like summer salads or seafood.

Villanella Pinot Grigio
This floral wine has flavors of pear and Golden Delicious apples. Its edge of acidity makes it a natural accompaniment to mild cheeses.

Grandi Mori Valdobbiadene Prosecco
Honeysuckle aromas round out the bright fruit and green apple tones of this aperitif. Wonderful with fresh fruit and salads.
