One of my favorites and so inexpensive. I was glad to have tried it at a friend's house and couldn't believe it was only $2.98 per bottle. Now I purposely go to Aldi for a couple of bottles to keep in my stock.
Best bang for your buck Merlot goes down real smooth served it tonite. Everyone enjoyed it and they only paid$6 per glass lol
Hi!!! Hi smoother, could you atleast make it obvious that you aren't changing screen names. Lol #idoit. Right there. Aldis brand is amazing! If you don't think it, stop buying it and stop being negative about us one that do love it. #getalife. Rant over.
The White Zinfandel is Very Good! I found it by accident, but will buy no other now. Beautiful flavor! I'm so impressed that I'm literally telling my friends to try it. It beats all of the others hands down. Thank you for a beautiful product! T Phipps Nashville, TN
Can anyone tell me what the white blend box tastes like? Is it comparable to a Chardonnay, Pinot G or Moscato. I am dying to try but I am worried it may be too sweet.
I was pleasantly surprised by this wine and highly enjoyed it. I bought it for a recipe, and I ended up finishing the rest of the bottle that day because it was so good. I'm normally a red girl, but this was a nicely robust and nuanced white. Read More
Thank you for an inexpensive but nice wine. I have enjoyed many finer wines (throughout many countries and I grew up in the Bay Area) and your Merlot is my go to for many recipes as well as for my everyday glass. As for a previous comment regarding the Alcohol content, look on the front label in the corner.
Worst wine ever! How can they allow you to be on business, Just terrible wine!!! =(
Hey idiots. Could you at least add the alcohol content on your cheap wine? There is NOWHERE on the bottle. Sincerely from Chicago, IL Thanks!
Fantastic Pinot Grigio bought it yesterday for $2.95 at Aldis strictly for cooking after sampling the wine went back today and bought a case I have paid a lot more for worse tasting wine Give it an A Kenny Bradenton fl

SUBJECT: Winking Owl wines at Aldi FoodsHello Wine Lovers;Aldi seems to have ... just recently supplanted the Winking Owl Vineyards with a new vintner called Universal Wine Network...Any body see this? THE WINE IS REALLY BAD COMPARED to the Winking Owl bottler. Help...is it just me or am I correct....UGH//.......lja/JMJ e-mail me @
Literally smells like fresh fruit, lightly of cloves and vanilla, but almost no oak. I was surprised at the jammy flavor and medium mouth-feel. Decent wine for the price, light lunch, or picnic. Read More

I just tried it for the first time. I am used to decent red wines like Robert Mondavi, Kendall Jackson, usually ordered out for $10.00-$15.00 a glass. This has a wonderful oak flavor and is really nice and the price is fantastic at $2.69! Would buy again! Very Pleased:) Read More
My husband and I love wine and just recently started going to the Aldi's store in our area. We just happened to see this wine and thought for the low price we could not afford to "not" try it and we were very pleasantly surprised. We both would describe it as full bodied will have it with our steak dinner tonight! We will definitely buy this again. Read More
