Last year, Aldi's Wine Advent Calendars had us ready to book a flight to England just to pick one up. Sure, there were other you could buy, but between Aldi's top-rated wine selection and super-affordable prices, we were still lusting after the British version. Thankfully, the Christmas calendar's popularity means that this holiday season, Aldi is bringing them stateside. We got a sneak peak of both new holiday goodies, as well as the exact date they'll be in stores. Here's what you need to know:
Wine Advent Calendar
The star of the show here is the festive wine collection. Each $70 box comes with 24 mini bottles of wine in red, white, rosé, and bubbly varieties, so you can cheers the lead-up to Christmas with all your favorite Aldi wines.
This is the first time they'll be available in the U.S., though there is one catch: some states (like New York) have laws against selling alcohol in supermarkets, so whether you can buy one at your local Aldi is dependent on state practices. If you're lucky enough to add Aldi's $8 rosé to your cart on the reg — or whatever your Aldi wine of choice may be — you should be able to find it in stores.
Cheese Advent Calendar
Not a big wine fan? Aldi is also dropping a cheese advent calendar this year, and it only costs $13. The equally festive box comes with 24 imported mini cheeses, including cheddar, gouda, and edam cheese. Of course, you could always double up and grab one of each ... a month of wine and cheese nights sounds like a pretty wonderful way to celebrate the holidays.
One thing's for sure: These fun advent calendars won't last long. Make note of November 7 in your calendar — that's the first day both the wine and cheese calendars will be in grocery stores!
