Wine Advent Calendar 2019

There are Advent Calendars that reveal chocolates, toys, treats and more, but our favorite Advent Calendars are the ones that give the gift of wine. Last year we followed Delectable community member, Chris England as he paired new wines with festive photos and "Santa says" commentary. This year we are following Delectable member, Sharon B as she pairs her wines with cheese and sweets. Tune in daily for updates and continued Holiday Cheer (and cheers)!

Festive Collection Cava Rosé Brut

Day 24 - My Christmas Eve drink from the wine advent calendar tonight is this delicious Cava Rosé Brut from Spain. It was paired with a sharp Red Leicester cheese and a white chocolate latte macchiato truffle. This has been so much fun for me, to be able to try a different wine every night, some I have never had, and to pair them with cheeses and sweets. I’ve learned that I love truffles with wine and they absolutely enhance the flavors. I wish a Merry Christmas to all my Delectable friends and to the Delectable Staff!!

Festive Collection Shiraz

Day 19 - break time! This is the first time in many many years that I have toys to wrap for Christmas! I’m enjoying every minute of it along with this nice Shiraz from South Africa. Smooth tannins, full bodied, dark red in color. Very fruit forward with blackberries and pomegranate on the palate. This wine was paired with a hot and spicy white cheese and a bourbon vanilla truffle. — 2 years ago

Festive Collection Sauvignon Blanc

Day 23! Getting closer to Christmas! 🎄🍷🥂🎅🏻 this is a delicious Sauv Blanc from Chile. It’s paired with a Gouda which really brings out the tanginess and zestiness of the wine. The mascarpone truffle gives it a nice smooth finish. I can’t believe it’s the Eve of Christmas Eve already!! Cheers! — a year ago

Festive Collection Pinot Grigio Blush

Day 20 - this is very unique to me. I don’t drink much Pinot Grigio so this blend is totally new for me. It’s light peach in color, semi sweet and very light. This would be a great summer wine by the pool. It is being paired with an herbed Gouda and a cappuccino truffle. I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised at how good it actually is. — a year ago

Festive Collection Tempranillo

Day 21 - preparing for our family Christmas dinner early since my son is home from South Florida for the weekend. I don’t drink too many Tempranillo’s but this one is very enjoyable and is going well with licking banana pudding off the spoon! It’s very light and actually quite fruity with some acidity. This was paired with an aged cheddar and a mousse with nougat chocolate. — a year ago
