There’s nothing like a countdown to build anticipation for Christmas, especially when that countdown includes presents. To make the season even brighter this year, we’ve picked out a few of our favorite wine advent calendars to toast to the season, perfect for ending the year on a relaxing note or treating yourself after all that shopping, cooking, and wrapping.

While we’ve previously rounded up amazing advent calendars that have a little something for everyone (including a coffee calendar and one filled with specialty popcorn!), these picks are exclusively for the vino lovers out there. Whether you want to send one to your best friend for some holiday cheer or you plan on sharing these sips with your partner, these calendars are great idea for wine pros, novices, or anyone who loves to try something new.

Every year, Vinebox offers a much-anticipated wine advent calendar that always sells out. This year, they’re featuring pours hand-selected by and from women in the wine industry, covering a variety of crisp whites and bold reds specifically curated for enjoying on cozy nights. These selections span wineries from across the world in regions of Italy, Spain, and France, and each include enough wine for one glass. Inside you’ll find six glasses of red, four glasses of white, and two glasses of rosé to keep it varied.

If 12 days just doesn’t cut it for you, then In Good Taste’s 24-count advent calendar has what you need. Each mini bottle has enough for one large pour or two small glasses (if you’re feeling generous!) and includes wines from renowned regions across California, Italy, and France. With 24 unique wines to sample, it’s a great gift for a wine lover or someone who has just started getting into wine. You’re guaranteed to find your new favorite bottle from this wide assortment!

Stay local with this selection that features 12 mini bottles all from exceptional California wineries. This is the perfect calendar for anyone who wants to split and toast with someone else at home or save some for later as each bottle holds enough for a little more than two glasses. Sample cabernets, merlots, pinot grigios, and more while decking the halls, all for a special Black Friday price of $89.

With one of these wine advent calendars, get ready to toast to the holiday season in delicious style!
