Whether or not you’re doing dry January, no one can deny that sometimes all you need in this life is a glass of wine and a quiet place to sit and enjoy it. Often times, the type of wine doesn’t matter and you’re an equal lover of red, white, and rosé – whatever’s available will do nicely, thank you. Well, get ready to have a new favorite vino, because Aldi is bringing out vanilla bean wine this month and quite honestly, that’s the best news I’ve heard in a long time.
- Wait, vanilla bean… in wine? Yeah, it’s an odd combination, but that’s kind of what makes it so genius. While vanilla is often associated with being a creamy flavor and wine tends to be a bit crisper/sharper, the combination of these unique tastes actually kinda works here, I think. At the very least, it’s intriguing enough for me to give it a try!
- Aldi has proven they deserve our trust. Don’t forget, Aldi has come out with some pretty stellar wines with uncommon notes, like their pina colada wine and chocolate wine, both of which were pretty tasty. I think we can trust them to know what they’re doing when it comes to flavor combos, and vanilla bean wine might end up being one of their best!
- Not convinced yet? I don’t know why! Vanilla bean wine is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a blend of white wine, vanilla, and cream. It would go really good with some ice in a blender, perhaps – kinda like an alcoholic milkshake? Worth a try!
- The Petit Vanilla Bean Wine Specialty will be on shelves this month. There’s no specific date for Aldi to release this wine, but we do know it’s hitting stores in January. Given that we’re already halfway through the month, it might be on shelves at your local store now. What better time to go and check? Pick up some snacks while you’re there!
