Fresh off being named Australia's favourite supermarket of the year for 2021, Aldi Australia has added another gong to its collection, with the store's wine range claiming the top award at the Melbourne International Wine Competition.
All up, Aldi's wine took out three major titles; Italy Pinot Grigio Winery of the Year, Brut Champagne of the Year, and Sauvignon Blanc winery of the year, as well as claiming three Double Gold awards and four Gold awards.
"We are thrilled that our award-winning wines have been recognised yet again among the highest quality drops available in Australia. Produced locally and abroad by our network of loyal partners, these awards are a testament to their hard work and dedication," Wine Buying Director at Aldi Australia Jason Bowyer said in a statement.
Consumers clearly agreed, having already voted to help Aldi win 'Best Liquor Retailer' in this years’ Canstar Awards.
A bargain $4.99 bottle of South Point Estate Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir was awarded Double Gold. So too were the $6.99 bottles of Bordeaux Les Maurins Sauvignon Blanc 2020 and Villa Elsa Pinot Grigio 2020.
The retailer had also already won in both the chocolate and coffee categories at Canstar Blue's 'Most Satisfied Customer Awards for 2021. And had won Australian Supermarket of the year for 2020 as well.
