With the first day of Fall nearly upon us (yes, already), the hot and boozy days of peak rosé season are sadly numbered. But it looks like you're about to get another good reason to keep hitting the pink stuff before switching to red wine and pumpkin beers this month, now that Aldi -- yes, Aldi -- is releasing its award-winning $8 rosé in the United States. Get your damn stemless glasses ready.
The discount supermarket chain announced that you can finally get your hands on bottles of the low-cost wine -- the Exquisite Collection Cotes de Provence Rosé 2016 -- at its stores across the US, starting on Wednesday, September 20. The wine's long-awaited American debut follows the explosion of international attention it received earlier this year, when word got out that it had been named the best value rosé at the prestigious International Wine Challenge for a second year in a row and was on sale at Aldi stores in the United Kingdom. This will be the first time you can buy it in the 'States, but only while supplies last, according to the company.
