When you have an entire feast to plan, cook, and serve, staring blankly at dozens of shelves of wine is the last thing you have time for. And don't just reach for the most expensive bottle and call it a day. With a little inside information, you can serve guests a delicious and affordable wine. We're here to tell you that ALDI has come to the rescue with a $10 Cabernet Sauvignon you can count on.
The California Cab is part of a limited-edition holiday collection that also includes Chardonnay and a red wine blend. The affordable pick tastes anything but— it's bright, with hints of forest fruit, and has a distinguished finish. Smooth to drink, it pairs easily with a wide range of holiday fare, so you can serve one wine from Thanksgiving through New Years. (For something special, try it with Squash and Caramelized Onion Whole-Wheat Twists or this Spaghetti Squash Parmesan.)

The bottle is striking, too. The beloved supermarket partnered with artist, designer, and illustrator Timothy Goodman to create packaging that makes these wines a great centerpiece for your buffet, a wonderful host gift, or both.
The wine will be available on December 13 exclusively at ALDI stores for $9.99. And while you’re stocking up, pick up our favorite grocery items to buy at ALDI, too.
