This $6.99 Merlot From Aldi Just Won Wine of the Year
We're already fans of Aldi wines (and the fact they taste so good but make such a little dent in your pocket), but we'll be making a special trip to pick up a few award-winning bottles this week.
Aldi's wines picked up a total of 12 awards at the Melbourne International Wine Show, across all varieties. Especially exciting, they took home two "Wine of the Year" titles for reds from the One Road vineyard in South Australia — and they are the ones we plan to buy in bulk, and take to our in-laws' house to show we know stuff about wine.
