5 of our favorite Aldi Wines under $10 that would be perfect for Thanksgiving or cheap wines for Friendsgiving.
Don’t you love when your favorite stores open up by you? We recently had an Aldi and a Costco open by us in a manner of three months. Needless to say, it’s been like heaven on earth. With the holidays and Thanksgiving quickly approaching, the entertaining season will be in high gear. Let’s be honest, it can be expensive to host dinner or a party for friends and family. With all these value stores opening up by us, I wanted to research and test (it was extremely hard work you guys) what wines you could get that wouldn’t break the bank but your guest would love. I mean, don’t we all love that moment of,
“OMG, this wine is so good!”
“It’s from ALDI! It’s only $8!”
Of course, we do. So with that, these are 5 $10 or under cheap wines from Aldi!
5 Wines From Aldi Under $10
I will note that these wines are under $10 at my local Aldi but prices can vary based on your location. So while I will give the price of what I paid, it may not be an exact match to your store.
This Pinot Noir from California was my favorite red wine out of all of the under $10 wines I tested. It’s got notes of black cherry, plum, and oak. If you are a dry red wine drinker like me, then you’ll enjoy the balance of juicy and dry this 2016 Pinot Noir carries.
Tip: Let it decant for the full hour before consuming. Both red wines in this list changed drastically from an hour sit.
This is one of the infamous award winning Aldi wines. This California wine is balanced with blackberries and vanilla. Is it the best Merlot I’ve ever had? No. Is it the best Merlot I’ve had for under $5.50? Yes. Decant for an hour and this wine opens up to be full-bodied and smooth.
This is almost like a sour Italian wine. I personally love that because it’s crisp and tart from the lemon and peach. I don’t pull towards white wines but I would buy this again for its refreshing taste. Best served chilled and in a chilled wine glass.
A full-bodied rosè from France that has hints of berry. This was a touch sweet at first but after letting set open while chilling for 30 minutes the sweetness mellowed out and you were left with a delightful crisp glass of wine. This would pair perfectly with a salad course prior to dinner.
I’ve already re-purchased this wine. It’s dry, it’s apple, it’s pear, it’s pretty dang good Italian Prosecco for under $10. While the bubbles do disperse quicker than one would want, I don’t keep it around in my glass long enough for it to matter. Would drink on its own, as a Mimosa, or with Grandma.
Bonus: I’ve seen this wine get down to $5.99, so grab a few extras when it gets marked down.
These are my 5 Aldi Wine picks under $10 that are perfect for Thanksgiving of Friendsgiving. So if you’re hosting Thanksgiving, don’t break the bank and don’t get stuck with just one bottle of two buck chuck. With wine this cheap you could set up a wine tasting or even a Thanksgiving food-wine pairing.
