Perfect Pairings at Aldi’s

Do you have ALDI’s grocery stores in your area? We do but, I must confess, I have never been in one locally. I vacationed in Atlanta a few years ago and shopped at one very briefly to pick up a few things. I didn’t pay much attention to the store itself and now I wish I had. It might help me with this article. I know stores are so different from one area to the next.

I recently was given the chance to write this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of ALDI. I went to the website and looked them up and found that there was one very close to my home that I didn’t even know existed. I agreed to participate and they sent me some gift certificates.

The funny thing was, when I received them, they included a shopping list to purchase various items that were important in association with wine for entertaining. Did you know ALDI’s sold wine? I didn’t! Heck, I didn’t even know grocery stores sold alcohol until I moved to Ohio. They don’t in PA where I am from!

Just in time for holiday celebrations and dinner parties, ALDI grocery stores are announcing their line-up of award-winning international exclusive wines. Most of the ALDI wines are affordably priced at $4.99 or less, making it easy to serve guests a great wine for a low price. Known for its premium exclusive brands, ALDI offers more than 1,400 of the most frequently purchased grocery items for up to 50 percent less than traditional supermarkets. Customers can get all the holiday essentials for less, including everything from wines and appetizers to main courses, side dishes and desserts, making holiday meals and family gatherings warm and memorable. During the holiday season, ALDI stores also carry an additional line-up of more than 100 seasonal items at unbeatable prices.

I headed over to my local Aldi with my gift certificates in hand to check out what they had.  To my surprise they had a really big selection. I picked up a bottle of Chaza Moscato, (this is a deep red wine made with a sweeter more flavorful grape), a bottle of Villa Malizia Pinot Grigio (this is a white wine and this brand is good choice for the price but it a typical Pinot) and a bottle of Landshut Riesling (this is a white wine, very clean taste and leaves your mouth almost refreshed). To pair with these I also purchased Edenvale Brie Cheese, Belmont Cheesecake Sampler, Grandessa Mini Eclairs and Havarti Cheese. I LOVE LOVE Havarti! I was given $50 in gift certificates to create a holiday treat. I purchased all of these items for $50.28.

As for the store itself, it was well organized, the staff was nice, it was clean and I was out in less than 30 minutes with all of my things! Check our your local Aldi’s the next time you are in the mood for entertaining on a budget.
