Friends, it's the most wine-derful time of the year - well, almost.

De Bortoli Wines are bringing back their wine advent calendar and it's ready for order from 30 August (i.e. TODAY!)

​I know, I know, it's only August and we're already bringing you Christmas content. But we figured given it involves wine - a whole 24 mini bottles - you might forgive us for the reminder that the silly season is but 16 weeks away.

Talk about the best way ever to take the edge off Christmas chaos!

Now, while they're not sharing all their secrets, the team at De Bortoli says we can expect:

  • Rosé Rosé - an innovative wine that's been been making headlines and winning awards for its design and taste.
  • Pinot G - a definite "head-turner" with its funky holographic label that shines a whole new light on the popular Pinot Gris varietal
  • Woodfired Cabernet Sauvignon - De Bortoli's newest release is just the wine to add some seriously good flavour to summer BBQs.

"These and the other great tasting mini-wines in the Advent Calendar are ideal for any festive occasion - sparkling wines to enjoy at Christmas celebrations, white wines and rosé to cool you down on those warm summer days, and a selection of red wines to savour with your evening meal,' De Bortoli says.

You can order the De Bortoli Wine Advent Calendar via the online shop, or at one of their Cellar Doors in the Yarra Valley, Hunter Valley, Riverina and Rutherglen for $139.

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