Wine Advent Calendar… Great Way to Start Your Holiday

Wine Advent Calendar

The other day Carla, one of Vino 301’s dynamic Tour Ambassadors, was sharing with me she was trying to get a wine Advent calendar.   She was trying to get one of Aldi’s famous calendars but they were sold out. Yes, Aldi the grocery store sells wine, mostly outside the Washington-Baltimore Area.   We were only able to locate one Aldi store in Washington, DC which sells beer and wine.  It is located at 901 17th Street, N.E. Washington, D.C.  (click here to find a store near you)

Wine Aldi Advent Calendar

Immediately, I thought this world is a wonderful place. Twenty-four days of wine, life couldn’t be any better. If you not familiar with wine Advent calendar concept, let me explain.  Aldi’s wine Advent calendar is a lovely holiday season decorated box.  The box is numbered 1 through 24, representing each day of Advent.   Each number is perforated. Behind each number is a miniature bottle of wine. Beginning December 1, you puncture the countdown calendar on each day of Advent to retrieve a miniature bottle. Heaven, I say!  The box contains an assortment of red, white, rosé and sparkling wines.

You are probably wondering why am I telling you this since Aldi is sold out. Well, I found a couple other locations where you can get these calendars.  It is not too late.  You can order your wine calendar online or make your own.  But don’t wait too long.  These calendars are very popular and will sell out quickly.

If 24 bottles of wine are overwhelming start on a smaller scale. Vinebox offers 12 different glasses wine.
