If you answered “yes,” then there’s one thing you absolutely must have this Christmas season.
A wine advent calendar.
Say what? What even is a wine advent calendar?
Answer: exactly what it sounds like.
It’s a delightful calendar that lets you count down to the holidays by opening a different door from Dec 1 until Christmas Eve. Behind each door is a different surprise. In this case, the surprise is a different wine everyday.
But, which wine advent calendar should you get?
The countdown to Christmas just got a lot merrier with Drinjk Wine’s luxury advent calendar.
A newcomer to the wine advent calendar game, Drinjk is setting the bar pretty high for their competitors. Each advent calendar contains 24 different wines in Drinjk’s new 6.3-ounce designer glass bottles.
With only a limited number available, you want to make sure you get yours before they’re gone! You do NOT want to miss this one. Sign up early for thepre-waiting list for Drink Wine’s Luxury Wine Advent Calendar today.
Also new to the wine advent calendar scene, Kroger is debuting their Oh What Fun! (get it?) Holiday Wine Countdown Calendar in November.
Jingle your way through the Yuletide with Kroger’s wine advent calendar, featuring a variety of whites, reds, rosés, and even festive sparkling wines.
Kroger’s Oh What Fun! Holiday Wine Countdown Calendar will be available on their website and in select stores on November 1st. Pre-order is not available, but you cancheck it out here.

If you didn’t get yours last year, now is your chance. This popular wine advent calendar is back for Holiday 2019!
This advent calendar was a success in 2018. It sold out mere minutes after hitting the shelves, however, they did have limited availability in each store (some people say their store only had 3).
Price:Aldi has not yet confirmed a price. Last years’ calendar varied slightly by store, but averaged about $69.99 ($2.92/bottle).
Purchase limits and high-popularity means high competition for this wine advent calendar. If you want to get one, start mentally preparing to queue up now.Aldi’s Wine Advent Calendar will be available in stores on November 6th.

Tiny bottles need not apply. If one glass just isn’t enough — or maybe you want to share it with your significant other (if they’re on the nice list...or the naughty list, if you know what I mean) — GiveThemBeer’s Wine Advent Calendar might be for you.
Featuring 12 half-bottles of wine, ring in the holiday season with a mix of white, red, and sparkling wines.
Estimated to ship in late November, this adult advent calendar isavailable for pre-order on GiveThemBeer.com. GiveThemBeer will not restock this calendar. Once it’s gone...it’s gone.
Innovators in the wine industry, their patented single-serve wine bottle design is that perfect mix of approachable yet chic.
Just like that sweater you wore to the company Christmas party last year — well, that’s what they told you, anyway.
