If there was ever a time for an advent calendar featuring 24 bottles of wine to help you uncork your way out of this roller coaster of a year, it's right now.
Luckily, Vancouver wine seller New District has stocked up with their signature Wine Advent Calendars, which feature thoughtfully-selected bottles for counting down until Christmas Day - which will find us all mercifully closer to the end of 2020.
Available in 12- or 24-bottle sets of either red, white, or mixed combos, the boxes come in handmade wooden wine crates, with each bottle individually gift-wrapped and numbered, with a tasting note for each wine. You can stick to the calendar method and take them day by day or every-other-day, or choose your adventure.
Split the month's worth of wine with a friend in your COVID bubble, give a box as a gift, or hoard the bottles to usher in 2021 - there are no rules except our public health orders on social gatherings and drinking responsibly.
New District's wine advent calendars are priced at $449.99 for 12-bottle sets and $899.99 for 24 bottle sets. Order online for pickup at their store at 5650 Dunbar St in Vancouver. Delivery is available on select days within Vancouver.
