10/17/2018-Adults-only advent calendars are on the rise. There are Advent calendar options featuring beer, gin, other spirits, and wine. Here are the wine Advent calendars we found available in the U.S.

Give Them Beer

Don't let the company name fool you, there's no beer here. (Though that option does exist if it's more your speed). And no itty-bitty bottles, either. Each bottle in this box is 375 ml (the size of a split of sparkling wine)! The 2018 wine Advent calendar from Give Them Beer is one of the only ones we've seen with bottles large enough for sharing. Last year their beer Advent calendar sold out in less than four weeks, so don't expect this one to be around forever either.

What's inside:

  • Twelve 375 ml bottles of reds, whites, and splits of sparkling wines from well-known wineries around the world, such as Robert Mondavi, Ruffino, Korbel, and Rocca delle Macìe.

Price: $169.99

After all the buzz around this wine Advent calendar last year, Aldi is bringing it to the U.S. for the 2018 holiday season. The calendar will be available for a limited time in Aldi stores (ones selling alcohol) starting November 7. How long is "limited"? According to a PR contact, "Each store will get one shipment of these calendars, and once they're gone, they're gone." Don't expect them to last long.

What's inside:

Twenty-four mini bottles of red, white, rosé, and sparkling options, including red blend, Shiraz, Malbec, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon Blanc from a variety of regions.

Price: $69.99

Available: In stores November 7 for a limited time.

Another 12-wine Advent calendar that sold out in four weeks in 2017. In the Vinebox version of a wine Advent calendar, each wine comes in a fun (and also science-lab-looking) screw-top tube. Each tube contains enough for one glass of wine. Vinebox added a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-like twist to their box: Ten lucky winners will find a golden sparkly bottle in their box, meaning they won free wine for all of 2019!

What's inside:

A mix of 12 wines specially curated from various regions for the holiday season.

Price: $129
