Know your Malbec from your Merlot? Your Sauvignon from your Shiraz? If you consider yourself a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to wine, this is the club for you. Every three months Aldi selects a new panel of burgeoning wine experts from the public to give their thoughts on the latest wines to join Aldi’s impressive range.

The exclusive club only takes on thirty recruits at a time, making membership highly sought-after. And for good reason – members of the Aldi Wine Club get to taste test three bottles from the supermarket’s award-winning range of wines over a six week period. Oh, and did we mention it’s all totally free?

All that Aldi asks for in return is for the budding wine connoisseurs to share their honest reviews using the dedicated #AldiWineClub hashtag across their own Instagram channel and on the Aldi website. Even better, to help the burgeoning wine buffs thoroughly review their free vino, members also receive guidance on a selection of tasting notes and expert tips on how to assess the aroma, flavours and body of the wine.

Want in on this action? Of course you do! To apply to be part of the next batch of Aldi Wine Club members, all you need to do is follow @AldiUK on Twitter and Instagram and send an email to wineclub@aldi.co.uk with your name, Twitter handle, Instagram handle, proof of age and 150 words explaining why you think you should be a member of the Aldi Wine Club.
