Be an Aldi wine taster as the international supermarket are looking to hire 30 more tasters to join their team.

If you already love the taste of wine, then there’s no reason at all why you shouldn’t take things to a more professional basis with the help of the German supermarket who are more famous for selling – I don’t know – windsurfing boards, slippers for ostriches and 1999 overhead twin camshaft piston engines in their centre aisles.

Aldi want wine tasters and one of them could be you since they’re looking for 30 people to join their 24th Aldi Wine Club.

Given that this current pandemic is keeping everyone locked in their homes, you don’t even need to leave the house, with Aldi sending you three bottles of lovely wines and all you need to do is drink them and follow that up by posting your honest opinions on Twitter with the hashtag #AldiWineClub.

Announcing their desire for 30 willing participants, the supermarket wrote:

Know a thing or two about your grapes? Fancy yourself as a wine expert? 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 three delicious bottles from our range to try over a six week period.

All we ask is 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“.

It’s not particularly watertight is it, their plan? Nothing’s stopping me from getting on Twitter, trying a wine on my own volition and then posting ‘This lovely Châteauneuf-du-Pape made me masturbate in public and kick a young dog #AldiWineClub‘.

I won’t do that, but there’s all sorts online.

If you want to be part of the Aldi Wine Club, follow the official Aldi UK Twitter account (@AldiUK) and send an email to with your name, Twitter handle, proof of age, and 150 words about why you think you should be chosen.

Good luck, people!
