Remember the excitement of the Advent Calendar…opening one door a day to see what the picture or chocolate was underneath? Well, now there’s a Wine Advent Calendar. That’s right, 12 wines just right for Christmas will be delivered to your door from The Wine Gallery, Australia’s fastest growing wine start-up.


They’ve got all your festive season needs covered with the perfect mixture of reds, whites, sparkling and rosé. Individual bottles remaining a closely held secret until the day of unwrapping of course.


Wine Gallery co-founder and three time Australian Sommelier of the Year, Banjo Harris Plane says, “We’ve now got tens of thousands of customer wine ratings and this is the perfect way for us to celebrate some of the standout favourites.”


Each box includes Christmas recipes, wine pairings, tasting notes tasting, mats to fill out with friends and a couple of surprise gifts that you’ll have to wait to see. The pack can be ordered online for $285 including shipping $23 a bottle here.


But that’s not all.


The Wine Gallery is celebrating the release of their advent calendar by hosting a spectacular 12 Wines of Christmas tasting bashes in Melbourne at Lot Four on the 5th of December.


Attendees will start the night with a glass of sparkles as they receive their advent pass and begin their Christmas wine adventure. And yep, you’ve got it, the pass can be stamped at each station as they go, taking as little or as long as they want to quiz our wine specialists; including Banjo, read the tasting notes, nibble on matching cheese and canapés, socialize with the other wine lovers, take pictures and last but not least, grab some of the free goodies hanging from the Christmas branches.


Tickets go on sale for $38 at 9am today, Wednesday 25th October here.


Sounds like the perfect way to begin your festive season.
