Aldi launches no-alcohol alternatives to sparkling wine
Aldi has launched two non-alcoholic sparkling wine alternatives, to follow in the success of last year’s launch of its low calorie Featherweight collection.
The ZeroPointZero Sparkling White Brut and Rose bottles are also low calorie, with just 35 per serving and no alcohol; the wines are priced £2.49 per bottle.
Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK, said: “We are always listening to our customers to ensure we are providing them with quality, great value products, in line with demand.
“As the trend towards health and wellbeing continues to grow, we are delighted to be able to offer our shoppers two delicious no-alcohol alternatives to sparkling wine, so if they are choosing not to drink they can still toast to any occasion.”
The ZeroPointZero Sparkling White Brut is made with a combination of fermented grape juice blended with premium green tea, to deliver notes of apple and pear with “a pleasing acidity”.
The ZeroPointZero Sparkling Rose is described as “a refreshing and finely balanced non-alcoholic rose, boasting delicate notes of soft red fruits and forest floor”.
Meanwhile, the company confirmed that throughout 2018 it will open 70 new stores and by 2020 it will operate more than 1,000 stores (it currently has an estate of 775).
