Wine & Cheese Advent Calendars

If you didn’t see these wine advent calendars mentioned last year you didn’t miss anything because they were only sold in the United Kingdom.  This year we are in luck in the United States, Ana Calderone from People Magazine reports that Aldi is going to be selling them here!!!!

Aldi is on a mission to make this Christmas the jolliest one yet.

Yes, it’s still summer but the discount grocery store chain is getting ready for the holidays by releasing two very exciting new advent calendars: one filled with wine and one with cheese.

The Wine Advent Calendar—which was previously only available in the U.K.—retails for $69.99 and helps you count down the days until Christmas with 24 small bottles of red, white, rosé and bubbly instead of chocolate. The variety of wines, which include Malbec, Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc, come from all different regions around the world.

For the cheese lovers, the Cheese Advent Calendar comes stuffed with 24 imported mini cheeses, like Cheddar, Gouda, and Havarti.

Both calendars are available starting on November 7 in U.S. stores, though the company notes that the wine calendars are only stocked in the Aldis that sell alcohol. And don’t expect them to stick around long—the wine version reportedly sold out fast when it was available overseas last year.


For my #CaliforniaGirlsGoneWine followers, this is exciting news and definitely worth marking on your calendar.  I have the date circled in red!  I’m looking up my nearest Aldi that carries wine so that I can be there as soon as they are open on November 7th so I get both the wine and the cheese calendars.
This will be one Christmas season that I don’t mind watching the days pass by in a flash.  #GirlsGoneWine
