OK, I have been purchasing wine at Aldi food stores for a while now. The winking owl brand, merlots, some kind of blush, and their white. It is dirt cheap ($2.99?), kind of low in alcohol (not a bad thing since you don't get as drunk as fast)... they taste pretty good.
Over the holidays, I bought a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo which was really good for like $4.99 a bottle. And I have bought their Rieslings (being a German co, I figured their Mosel would be pretty good, and it is, esp, for the price.
Did try a beer there (can't remember name) was just OK...
Anyone else purchase Aldi alcohol beverages?

I'm an ALDI shopper, but unfortunately for me, I live in PA and ALDI isn't licensed to sell alcohol in this commonwealth. Wine is only sold in "state stores" here.

After months of contacting the Alabama legislature we were finally able t get wine and beer at the two Huntsville locations. I agree with you about the wine: wonderful variety and great prices. The beers pretty much come in 3 varieties: a Heiniken knock off, a Corona knock off and a Wurstensomething or other. The last one is the best per my husband. I basically use it to make beer bread. To go with the wine.

We often get wine at Aldi. They carry a decent tempranillo, and they also carry a few different liqueurs that are not bad.

Have not tried their sangria yet, and they have a Baileys knockoff that looks pretty good. Have not tried it yet. I think I had the heinekenstyle beer.

Their Irish cream isn't bad. It's not Bailey's, but def. drinkable.

We don't have state stores, but our Aldi's do not sell wine either. The one in Joplin, 30 miles north does. We picked up a couple of bottles one time, it was pretty decent for cheap wine: I would say, similar to Trader Joe's, maybe for a reason: the same family owns both.

I buy almost all my wine at ALDI - they are fabulous deals! I especially love their Italian ones, the chianti and the pinot noir. I also love their chardonnay, and even though only $4.99 per bottle, it tastes better to me than some I have had at 4x the price!

I've purchased wine at Aldis. I'm not much of a wine drinker, but for the price, I just had to pick up a few bottles.

Well, considering Aldi owns Trader Joe's and Trader Joe's is well know for their good and cheap wines, it does make sense that Aldi would have some good vino selections.
