As stressful as the holidays can be with all the traveling, gift shopping, family time, and... more family time, there's plenty to look forward to. There's the cornucopia of baked goods, the ever-flowing eggnog, the gifts, and hopefully, plenty of booze. Fortunately, this season there's even more booze on the horizon thanks to ALDI and its new Wine Advent calendar, which comes stocked with 24 different bottles of wine -- one for every pre-Christmas day in December.
This oenophile-friendly calendar from the discount grocery chain was a huge success when the company offered them in locations overseas last year, but this is the first time they'll be available in the United States. Each one comes stocked with 24 6.37-ounce bottles of vino, which amounts to roughly six full regular sized bottles in total. As for what to expect, you'll find two bottles each of 12 different varieties including Prosecco, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, White Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, Malbec, Shiraz, Red Blend, and Merlot.
