Sparkling Wine Advent Calendars Now Exist—And The Countdown To Christmas Just Got So Much More Festive

Celebrate the season with a bit of bubbly every day!

Looking for a fun and boozy way to celebrate the holidays this year ⁠— or for the perfect gift for a wine aficionado friend? Look no further than a sparkling wine advent calendar that’s available for the coming season.

The Superstar Sparkling Advent Calendar from British retailer The Pip Stop gives you a miniature 6.7-ounce bottle (or about one glass) of bubbly wine, including white and rosé prosecco, cava, and champagne, for each day of advent. On Dec. 24, the last day of the calendar, there’s even an extra-special bottle of Laurent Perrier Champagne from France to help you kick off your Christmas celebrations.

Unfortunately for Americans, the calendar is only available for shipping in the U.K. as of now and retails for a hefty £125 (about $156).

However, those of us on the other side of the pond do have some other options, so all is not lost!

Last year, grocery retailer Aldi brought a similar wine advent calendar to the U.S. for the first time, and it is expected that they will sell it again in 2019 — and it’s much more affordably priced at $69.99.

As you’ll notice from Instagram user @kimberlyallison24’s photo, each Aldi wine calendar contains 24 miniature bottles of different wines from around the world, including white, red, and sparkling varieties.
