Peeking behind the door of an advent calendar is always exciting, but as we’ve gotten older, we’ve grown a little tired of the chocolate-filled ones. We’ve been hunting for the perfect alternative that’s packed with something we actually want to find hidden behind each door, and we’ve finally found just what we’ve been looking for…
Introducing Laithwaites’ Wine Advent, the Christmas calendar that’s home to bottles of wine behind each door.
Back with a bang for 2022, the wine delivery specialists’ popular advent calendar is set to satisfy every wine lover out there. This year’s edition is packed with even more choice and great wines, but with last year’s price held. Pre-order your calendar by 31st October and spend only £69.99 (usually £79.99), saving yourself £10 – now who doesn’t love a good deal?
Laithwaites have been delivering wine the right way for over 50 years, keeping it simple at every stage for both the people who love making it and the people who love drinking it, so you can guarantee this calendar is packed with some goodies. With over 62,000 five star reviews on Trustpilot, this is a company you can trust. Let’s take a peek inside…
Appealing to every wine drinker, there are three calendars to choose from: white-only, red-only and one that’s mixed with both varieties offering the best of both.
Hidden inside each cubby hole you’ll find a quarter-sized bottle of wine, each carefully selected by Laithwaites’ expert team choosing their absolute favourites from their wide range. They blind taste over 40,000 wines every year and only a select amount make the grade, so you can be sure that each bottle included is the best of the best.
And there’s even an extra special bottle included for Christmas Eve. Open up the lid of the box and you’ll find – spoiler alert – a half-bottle of Champagne waiting for you. Save this one for the big day or sip it on the 24th while you’re wrapping up last minute gifts or prepping the turkey. After all, who doesn’t love a glass of fizz at Christmas?
Plus, there’s even a Fine Wine Advent Calendar you can buy too filled with 100ml tasting packs. Expect to find an array of top French names, Italian icons and Old World classics, including everyone’s favourites Cloudy Bay, Whispering Angel, Chablis and Barolo all packed inside each door.
Even the design has been carefully thought out, with picturesque festive designs from their favourite wine regions on the front. Expect to find flurries of fairy lights lining the period-style buildings, Christmassy colours, snow-covered streets filled with folk bundled in coats and scarves, and even Santa and his reindeer rocketing above the buildings.
The perfect gift to buy for your wine loving friends or to enjoy yourself every evening in the lead up to Christmas, this is the advent calendar to invest in this winter.
