Just this month I've begun shopping there. Some decent food bargains, but wondering how decent their wines are. I bought a Pinot Grigio there that was ok for $7. They have quite selection of wine under $20. Any suggestions?

I shopped @ Aldi's years ago when making frequent visits to Iowa, but we don't have them in my area.

The blog is a good one, IMO.

It seems like a good place to begin. I forwarded the website to a wine critic I know. Will be interesting to get his feedback.

Daily drinkers come from Aldi. But they come from France, Chile, Spain, Sicily, Italy, and form Australia and NZ.

With a few exceptions, like 1 litre bottles from our very own wine lake.

For special occasions? We mostly drink wines from the well regarded Canberra Wine District. Plus a few from the Hunter Valley, like aged dry Semillon. Which is a uniquely Australian style of big-flavoured dry white. And they benefit from age.

For stickies, NE Victoria and SE NSW which are contiguous.

You will be better served by purchasing wine from Trader Joe's than from Aldi. At the under ten dollar price range, I cannot recommend any of their wines.
