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 Denominazione di Origine Controllata

To start off the Christmas season with my wine advent calendar, today’s wine is an extra dry Prosecco. I also bought the cheese and chocolate to pair with each wine so tonight I have a sharp white cheddar and a bourbon vanilla truffle. A nice way to start the holidays! — 2 months ago

@Dawn E. Last year all of the Aldi’s only got like 10 for each store so I missed out. This year I stood outside and waited in order to get one! I was so excited!
