But now I drink everything. It’s such a hard choice to make when I have to order a drink. Stick to ol’ reliable beer, or go for a G&T, a Bloody Mary, some wine? Maybe even a Mojito or some whisky? It’s bloody stressful.
I love all of them and if mixing drinks on a night out wasn’t such a bad idea, I’d probably have my fair share of each. Alas, I can’t (or rather shouldn’t), and so I have to stick to one. Most of the time I stick to beer, but if I’m treating myself, I’ll get a bottle of wine in.
Wine has the added perks of both looking good, and requiring less trips to the bar if you’ve got a bottle in, so it’s really a win-win. And now, thanks to Aldi, you can drink it for free and pretend you’re a sommelier.
The German supermarket is looking for 30 people to add to their Wine Club Panel, and you could be part of that.
In return for lending your refined palette to Aldi, you’ll be rewarded with two free bottles of wine every month for three months…
“Know a thing or two about your grapes?” the “job” description reads. “Fancy yourself as a wine expert?” it continues, essentially asking the same thing twice…
“Well, now you have the chance to have your say as we are after budding wine connoisseurs to join our new panel. Every three months we will select 30 burgeoning wine experts to join us on a tasting journey of Aldi’s delicious wines.“
“Being part of the panel means that you’ll be the first to hear about our award-winning wines, and we’ll send you two delicious bottles every month for three months from our range. All we ask it that you taste and review the wines in a tweet using the dedicated #AldiWineClub hashtag.
Along with the wines, to help you with your monthly reviews we’ll also send you a selection of tasting notes to guide you on everything from the aroma and body to the taste.“
They’re sending taste notes. Basically just doing the work for you. Insane.
If this sounds like the sort of thing you’d be into – and why wouldn’t it be? – then you can go ahead and email firstname.lastname@example.org. In said email, give your name, twitter handle and a 150 word passage on why you should be chosen.
I might sling over an email actually…
