This Wine Advent Calendar Is a Tasty Way to Celebrate the Holidays (and It's on Sale)
Holiday traditions can include many tasty rituals, but food-themed advent calendars are one of our favorites. Each day leading up to December 25, we look forward to opening a little door to reveal what surprise awaits us that day, giving us something to savor before the main holiday event. This year, we're planning on counting down the big day with a wine-themed advent calendar from In Good Taste, the brand known for curating flights of small-batch wines and hosting virtual tastings.
Its 2021 wine advent calendar comes with 24 miniature bottles of wine. Each bottle holds 187 millimeters, which is slightly more than the average pour. While you can order the calendar now, purchases won't start shipping until November 1—but that still leaves plenty of time for your gift to arrive before December 1.
The set incorporates wines from all three of the brand's collections and features a wide variety, so there's bound to be multiple bottles that your loved ones will enjoy, and they might even find a new variety they haven't tried before. It includes a food-friendly Pinot Noir from California, a Viognier that's great for Chardonnay lovers, and a rich Cabernet Sauvignon. Plus, it showcases bottles from the brand's Passport Collection, which features wines from regions in France and Italy.

The wine bottles are so cute and I can't wait for all the potential upcycle uses for them. And so far… all the wines have been tasty—I enjoy the variety and look forward to my daily wine Sucre!"
Pick up the 2021 wine advent calendar to gift to your friends and family this holiday season while it's $15 less. And while you're at it, order one for yourself, too. Because why shouldn't you savor wines from around the world this fall and winter?
