Just in time for Christmas, budget supermarket Lidl is launching a range of vegan wines in stores.
Supermarket chain Lidl’s range of own-brand alcohol regularly pips more expensive brands to the top spot in blind taste tests, and now the company is turning its attention to its vegan wine offering with the launch of a new range of vegan-friendly wines.
According to the Huffington Post, the supermarket is launching a vegan wine collection as part of its new Wine Tour focusing on the Rhône Valley.
The new range is comprised of three varieties, a white and two reds, and will arrive in Lidl stores nationwide from 22 November for two months.
First up is the Café Terrasse (£5.99), a wine made entirely from Muscat grapes and described by Lidl’s Master of Wine, Richard Bampfield, as “a delightful, refreshing, dry white with bright fruit flavours”.
Next up is the Vacqueyras (£8.99), which Bampfield notes is a “winter warmer with red fruits and spicy undertones”. The Vacqueyras is made from the same grape varieties and the same region as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but without the expensive price tag!
Lastly, joining the range is the Ségurets Côtes-du-Rhône Villages (£6.99), which is the perfect wine to accompany a nut roast according to Bampfield as it is a full-bodied wine with notes of white pepper.
