Aldi Launches its First English Sparkling Wine

10th October 2016


Aldi has teamed up with Denbies Wine Estate, in Dorking, Surrey, to produce its first English wine.

Chalk Valley Quality English Sparkling Wine will go on sale for £14.99 – making it one of the most expensive bottles the chain has in stock.

Chalk Valley has a creamy texture, long, zesty finish and finely balanced acidity high quality, dry and refreshing wine full of citrus aromas and with a hint of flora and brioche, thanks to a higher percentage of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes than some English sparkling wines.

John Worontschak, Head Winemaker at Denbies Wine Estate, comments: “We’ve been making the finest English wines on the Denbies Estate since 1986 and are delighted to have had the opportunity to work alongside Aldi to create an exclusive blend, making the very best of English sparkling wine accessible to all.”

Tony Baines Aldi’s joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying, comments: “The English sparkling wine market is booming as more and more Brits are recognising it as a world class product, worthy of going head to head with the finest Proseccos and Champagnes.

It is hoped the move will further boost the growing English wine industry as Chalk Valley goes head-to-head against Prosecco and Champagne.

Aldi sells over five million bottles of fizz (2015 sales figures), and The Chalk Valley Quality English Sparkling Wine will be an exciting addition to its popular offering, which includes Champagne, Crémant du Jura and Prosecco.
