Thanks to Aldi, Advent calendars aren’t just for kids anymore! I’ll drink to that!

NEWS – Kids aren’t the only ones who can look forward to opening a new door on the Christmas Advent calendar to find a treat now.  Last year, Aldi markets offered a calendar with a small bottle of wine for each day in the countdown to Christmas.  That calendar was available only in the UK, but they will also be offered in the USA this year.

The calendar has 24 doors, behind which is a small bottle of a red, white, or rosé wine, or even a bottle of bubbly.  Each bottle should contain about 6 ounces, so I’m thinking each adult in the family might want their own calendar.

Each box will contain:

  • 2 x Prosecco Extra Dry, Italy
  • 2 x Chardonnay, Australia
  • 2 x Chenin Blanc, South Africa
  • 2 x Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand
  • 2 x White Zinfandel, U.S.A.
  • 2 x Cabernet Sauvignon, Australia
  • 2 x Pinot Grigio, Italy
  • 2 x Malbec, Argentina
  • 2 x Shiraz, Australia
  • 2 x Red Blend, Italy
  • 2 x Merlot, Chile
  • 2 x Sauvignon Blanc, Chile

The Advent calendar will go on sale at US Aldi stores on November 7th.  There is a limited supply, so you’ll want to get your calendars early so you’re ready to start drinking opening on December 1st.  The calendars should sell for about $70.00, though prices may vary by location.  Learn more at Aldi’s website; while you’re there, check to see if Aldi stores in your area are allowed to sell wine.
