Aldi launches seasonal wine collection in time for the Bank Holiday – take a look

As part of its Spring Summer wine range, shoppers will be able to pick up a wide set of wines from all grape varieties.

The range includes a fruity Austrian Zweigelt and a refreshing Greek Assyrtiko.

And that’s not all, the supermarket has teamed up with Mistress of Wine and Aldi Wine School maestro, Sam Caporn, to help shoppers brush up on their knowledge, because who among us is truly a wine expert?

The handy list reveals some of the most commonly mispronounced tipples with an easy-to-follow guide on how to say them with grape ease.

Sam Caporn says: “We’ve spent the last couple of years helping shoppers become wine buffs through covering the principles of tasting within the  Aldiploma – our free wine education course – as well as continuing to showcase unusual grape varieties.

“The proper pronunciation of wine names will always be up for debate; I hope that our guide will help shed some light on how lesser-known, but amazing new wines in the range are pronounced, so shoppers can call out their favourites with ease!”
