Aldi’s Wine Advent Calendar Is Everything You Need This Holiday Season
A traditional advent calendar keeps a daily countdown exciting with chocolates or confections, and sometimes even beauty products and trinkets. But for wine-lovers, there is a new option in town this holiday season that promises to shake things up: Grocery chain Aldi has a booze advent calendar that houses six bottles’ worth of wine.
The wine advent calendar is one festive box of 24 mini bottles of wine including red, white, rosé, and fizz. While specifics haven’t been revealed, the Sun reports Aldi’s product is a collaboration with brands like JP Chenet and Calvet.
“Every day offers a new mini bottle of wine for an evening indulgence in the lead-up to Christmas,” Aldi’s site explains. “There’s no better advent calendar out there.”
That said, if you’re not in the U.K., you’re out of luck since Aldi’s wine advent calendar is only retailing across the pond. The German-based supermarket chain is slated to retail the box for £49.99 (roughly $67). This breaks down to approximately £2 per mini bottle, making it affordable enough for most consumers.
Wine snobs might not find all the wines to be up-to-par, but it should be noted that Aldi knows a thing or two about wine. The brand has some award-winning wine, like the $8 bottle of the Exquisite Collection Cotes de Provence Rosé 2016.
For crafty wine enthusiasts, this concept could be a quick DIY. Make a festive advent box and fill it with your favorite booze — it doesn’t even have to be wine.
