Aldi launches Wine Advent calendar
Aldi, the German discounter, has jumped on the Christmas band wagon with an early Advent calendar containing 24 miniature bottles of wine. The French wines are from regions such as Bordeaux, Cotes du Rhone and Chablis. There is a range of styles with red, white, rose and sparkling wines supplied by French wine brands including JP Chenet and Calvet. Selling for £49.99, the 24 miniatures are equivalent to 6 bottles of wine, or £8.33 per bottle. It may not be cheap but certainly is a novel idea for wine lovers and more fun than the usual chocolate.
