Thousands of bottles of champagne have arrived at budget supermarket Aldi's warehouses in preparation for the Christmas rush. The retailer is set for a bumper November and December, selling 750,000 bottles of the sparkling wine with sales expected to jump 50 per cent.
Demand for its £10.99 tipple soared after the chain gained a reputation for producing award-winning, yet affordable wine. One in every 12 bottles of champagne in the UK are now sold by Aldi and this Christmas the supermarket will also sell more upmarket bottles. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
