From white to red, from Prosecco to rosé, here are the best Aldi wines to buy both online and in-store - all of which are award winners. 

Aldi is fast becoming our go-to destination for the best cheap wines (opens in new tab), with this budget supermarket offering a huge number of high-quality wines at irresistibly low prices. This roundup of the best Aldi wines includes budget bottles under £20.

"Every season, the supermarkets hold press tastings of their upcoming wine selection which are well attended by wine experts such as Jancis Robinson and Dr. Jamie Goode," says Melanie Leyshon (opens in new tab), WSET-qualified wine writer. "It’s worth looking at their websites, blogs and Instagram feeds to see if they’re found any budget gems. There are always some surprisingly good stand-out buys. For example, a £6.99 Assyrtiko from Aldi has long been a favourite with many wine writers."

Like Lidl wines (opens in new tab), Aldi's wine selection has received a lot of attention over the years for having gained multiple medals - gold, silver, and bronze - from very prestigious wine competitions like the International Wine Challenge (IWC) (opens in new tab) and the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) (opens in new tab). Both are hugely respected, and judges from around the world blind taste-test the wine to pick the best ones. But do you know which ones to pick when you're hitting the aisles?

I had been looking for it for some time when by chance it was recommended on Saturday Kitchen, to be found in M&S at £10 per bottle. They had none in stock so I googled it and located it in Aldi at less than £8 per bottle. What joy and thanks to Aldi, as I had never shopped there before." (opens in new tab)
