Aldi offering wine & cheese Advent calendar


WSYR-TV – Children will often have a chocolate Advent calendar around Christmas time, but Aldi is trying to appeal to adults, too. 

It has 24 windows including your choice of either the alcoholic beverage or the savory treat.  

Weighing in at 21 pounds, the Festive Collection Wine Advent Calendar features 24 mini bottles of 12 different varieties, and will cost $69.99 or $2.92 for each 6.37-ounce bottle.

The Happy Farms Preferred Advent Cheese Calendar also is expected to be popular and costs $12.99. This 16.9-ounce calendar needs to be refrigerated and includes 24 imported mini cheeses in five varieties: cheddar, Red Leicester, Gouda, Edam and Havarti.

Wines included in the calendar are red, white, rosé and sparkling, including a red blend, Shiraz, Malbec, Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc. The wines hail from Chile, Argentina, Italy, Australia and South Africa.

You’ll have to act quickly if you want one– Aldi says it’s not restocking once they’re sold out.
