EVERYTHING'S LOOKING ROSE! ALDI'S ROSE CHAMPAGNE VOTED BEST IN THE WORLD AT INTERNATIONAL WINE CHALLENGE
09 May 2019


Aldi’s rosé wine range has triumphed at an international tasting competition, after the supermarket introduced its largest range yet to keep up with demand for the pink tipple. 
The supermarket’s rosés scooped six medals at the 2019 International Wine Challenge (IWC), with the Veuve Monsigny Champagne Rosé NV (£16.99), which hits stores later this week, taking home the highly-coveted Gold medal - the only supermarket Champagne to do so. 
Following record sales last summer, Aldi has expanded its Rosé wine range this year to include a host of dynamic new Provence-style wines, such as the Côtes du Luberon Rosé, which took home a Silver medal at the prestigious competition. 
Aldi’s recently expanded organic range also proved successful, with the Organic Malbec (£6.99) scooping a silver medal, taking the retailer’s overall medal count to 52.  
Aldi’s range of beers, wines and spirits has already won 63 awards so far this year, building on the success of 2018, when the range won over 240 awards. The supermarket also achieved the title of Supermarket of the Year at the IWC Merchant Awards 2018.
