Lidl whilst stocks last bargain


#21

I contacted Lidl direct about these wines and their answer was as vague as their stocking procedures

Certainly wasn’t offered any or instructed where to go to find them.


#22

Lidl are really understaffed and the shops are a mess, but that’s how they offer such low prices. The wines are hit and miss and the distribution of the better stuff they get from time seems to be a bit random (although I may investigate the second nearest (and bigger branch when I have a day off). Have previously found Les Fiefs de Lagrange and some others at very good prices.


#23

I only went in there earlier for eggs… other half was not amused when they cost £50! Still, I’m now sitting here smugly looking at these

…and wondering if I should forgo this year’s EP campaign and just go to Lidl several times a week instead just in case?! I could end up eating a lot of omelettes.


#24

Right, now I know what I’m doing while the girls are at pre-school this Wednesday!


#25

You wouldn’t go to my local lidl, they NEVER stock anything like this sadly :sob:


#26

I take it they never got back to you about your query, @Leah??.. that’s really irritating! :angry:


#27

I’ve just been to my local, NOTHING. Most of the fine wine bins are empty and the same shelf fillers bin is in front of it as last week.

Why do I bother.


#28

Exactly @inbar


#29

If you want a bargain, the WS has discounted this single bottle by £77 -

I suspect this is probably a mistake!


#30

I suspect the previous price of £89.50 is incorrect :slight_smile:


#31

I agree - probably a mistake that @laura might look into (cc @M1tch and @martin_brown just in case)

EDIT: looks like the case price was added as the bottle price


#32

It sold out already… no wonder given the discount :stuck_out_tongue:

There might be bots who react to large discounts…


#33

It’ll be the same guys that bought the Chave '15

Interesting Austrian wine reviewed by Jamie Goode:

Needless to say, not in stock in my local Lidl, North Birmingham.


#35

Oooh! thanks for the tip! I love Austrian reds, so a good excuse to check out the Brighton Lidl… :+1:


#36

Well, thanks again for sharing this, @Richard! Luckily my not-so-local Lidl had it in stock! Not many left, mind you, so I grabbed two and left some for @Bargainbob, should he fancy some Austrian red! :wink:
I noticed a Hungarian-theme in their ‘Summer Wine Tour’ section, so couldn’t help also grab an interesting looking 2015 Hungarian Cabernet Franc:


There was also a Hungarian version of the Grüner Veltliner grape at a very good price, and our old friend Juhfark too!
Finally, noticed an intriguing looking Gimblett Gravels Syrah - but I had to leave it to another time (should any remain, which I very much doubt!)…


#37

Is this the Lidl on London Road? We’re heading over that side of town on Sunday so will try and swing by. Thanks for the tip @Inbar!


#38

Is there a Lidl on London Road?! Or do you mean the Aldi on the corner?
The Lidl I went to is the Kemptown one. Currently very well stocked with their ‘Summer Wine Tour’ wines, but might be out of your way, I guess…?


#39

No you’re absolutely right - it’s an Aldi. The Kemptown Lidl is a bit out of the way, but there’s another one a couple of miles away from us on the way into Shoreham. I’m pretty sure I can make an excuse to head in there over the weekend!


#40

Yes, I know the one you mean! Definitely worth a visit, and hopefully as well stocked as the Kemptown one (which is a pain to get to even from my side of the tracks… :wink: )
