Aldi's wine advent calendar is coming back next month and sorry, is it Christmas yet?

It feels awfully early to be thinking about Christmas. Or anything to do with the festive season, really.

But with the advent calendars already starting to hit shelves and Christmas stores already opening, it seems like it's only going to be a matter of time until we're going to be decking the halls once again.

So we're going to embrace it. Because why not?


And it looks like Christmas is going to be getting a lot better this year, as Aldi have confirmed the return of their wine advent calendar.

Yes, you read the correctly.

Each of the 24 doors will open to reveal a mini bottle of wine - there are twelve bottles of white, six red, rosé or sparkling wine.

It includes 16 x 18.7cl and 8 x 20cl Bottles, with the advent calendar - which costs €69.99 - being available for over 18s only.

“It's fun, a bit indulgent and best of all, might expand our wine horizons,"  Aldi’s Wine Expert Tom Doorley said.


And the retailer have plenty of other advent calendars on the way; in fact, there's one  for every family member this festive season.

The advent calendars will go on sale in 139 stores across the country as of Sunday, November 3 while stocks last.
