0 159


“All I Want for Christmas Is You” is probably already making its way back up the charts, and it’s not even December yet. That’s right. The weeks-long window leading up to Christmas is the golden hour for getting your usual holiday traditions crackin’. Shopping Black Friday sales, revamping the décor, preparing for the party, frantic gift-shopping, and so on. But there’s one holiday tradition we would like to recommend the adults only in the household prioritize: wine advent calendars, for sipping your way through December.

You might miss the childhood ritual of opening a paper door and finding an innocent piece of sweet chocolate, but grow up and inject some booze into your Christmas countdown. Just imagine, after hustling all day, you’re tired and cruising for a nightcap, so you reward yourself with whatever’s hidden behind door No. 8. Oh, it’s your favorite Italian Pinot Grigio. Silly yet lovely. A wine advent calendar thus presents the cleverest pretext to do some regulated vino sipping, while winding down each day of a festive (read: exhausting but fun) December.

In most wine advent calendars, behind the array of secretive doors, there are 12 bottles of varietals to go with the 12 Nights of Christmas, or 24 of them to get you started on the first day in December, leading up to Christmas Eve. The best advent cals can surprise you with a new kind of delectable wine each night, so you look forward to raising a glass every day. Reds, whites, rosés, sparkling bruts, etc.—we cherry-picked the best wine advent calendars to get for your home this holiday season, or to gift to your sommelier friends and wine connoisseur relatives.
