Dreaming of a wine Christmas? Dream no longer!

Just weeks ago we learnt that ALDI customers in the UK and US would not only be getting into the festive spirit with their wine advent calenders, but they'd also be chowing down on 24 mini cheeses. As for us Aussies, however? Well, the supermarket chain was cryptically vague about whether we'd be getting them down under.

But while we've been quietly sulking ever since, De Bortoli Wines has come to our rescue, announcing they're releasing one of their own.


While some of the details are still top secret, what we do know about the calendar is that every day in December you'll get a different piccolo of wine.

I mean could there be a better way to take the stress out of the Christmas rush?

According to the team at De Bertoli, the pack includes wines from the De Bortoli Windy Peak, Emeri and Down The Lane ranges, as well as the new release Rosé Rosé.

"These mini-wines are not only perfect to enjoy with dinner, or bring along to festive celebrations, it is a great pre-Christmas gift idea to fully enjoy the silly season," they said. " Now that's what you call a wine-derful Christmas!"

On sale soon, the limited edition advent calender will retail for $129 - but only until stocks last. 

You can order from the De Bortoli Wines online shop or purchase one from their cellar doors in the Yarra Valley, Hunter Valley and Riverina. And if you're really keen you can register here to pre-order a calendar before it goes on sale to the public.

It's going to be a very Merry Christmas this year, indeed.
