Fancy yourself a bit of a wine expert? Love yourself a vino after a long, hard day?
Well, Aldi is looking for a bunch of wine connoisseurs to test and review their wines – and the best part is the gig comes with a promise of some free bottles. Result.
The budget supermarket’s Wine Club is in session again, and it is looking for 30 participants to sample its new range and give honest feedback.
Those who are recruited will receive three bottles of the supermarket’s award-winning wine and will be tasked with drinking it over a six-week period (but nobody will judge if it disappears a lot quicker…)

The wine drinkers will be asked to review the bottles on Instagram and Twitter, using the #AldiWineClub hashtag.
And the best part is the wine is completely free. It’s a hard life, ey?
Each bottle of wine will come with tasting notes from Sam Caporn, Mistress of Wine and the head of the Aldi Wine School, and she will also include some expert tips on how to taste the wine properly.
You’ll pretty much be a bonafide wine taster by the end…
So, how do you apply to the Aldi wine school?
It’s as simple as emailing [email protected] and giving your full name, age, social media handles and follower counts.
Then, you’ll need to sell yourself. Drop 150 words on why you’re the perfect person for the job, and give some details on which of the supermarket’s wines is your favourite and why.
Frankly, this is a small price to pay for free wine, don’t you think?
It goes without saying that you’ll have to be over 18 to apply for a position in the Wine Club, and if you’re an Aldi employees or immediately related to one, we’re afraid that counts you out, too.
Entries are open now, and you’ll have until March 13th to pledge your interest.
We have a feeling this is going to fill up very quickly – you’ll have to fight us for a spot.
