Aldi brings back popular wine Advent calendar ahead of the Christmas countdown

While a daily dosage of chocolate is always welcome, Aldi has the perfect new range of Advent calendars for grown-ups.

The supermarket’s hugely popular Wine and Sparkling Wine Advent Calendars are back – and they start from just £49.99.

Filled with an array of delicious dry, sweet and sparkling wines they are sure to bring a festive buzz all throughout the countdown to Christmas.

Both of the festive countdowns will go on sale next week, on Monday, November 1.

The Wine Selection Advent Calendar (£49.99), includes a mix of miniature bottles of some of Aldi’s best-loved wines.

And the Sparkling Wine Advent Calendar (£59.99) contains Prosecco Extra Dry, Sparkling Pinot Grigio Extra Dry, Sparkling Rosé Extra Dry, Sparkling Moscato and Sparkling Pinot Grigio Rosé Extra Dry.

Elsewhere, Aldi has been named Festive Retailer of the Year, beating the likes of Waitrose, Co-op and Tesco.

The supermarket swept up a whopping 83 wins at this year’s Grocer Own Label Awards, including overall category wins across Dairy, Food-to-Go, Special Diet and Ready Meals.

Aldi secured a further 47 wins across eight festive categories, including 15 wins within Festive Meat & Fish.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi, said: “We’re delighted to have received so much recognition at this year’s Grocer Own Label Awards and are thrilled to be named Festive Retailer of the Year.

“At Aldi, we’re committed to ensuring quality, premium products are accessible to all and won’t break the bank, and these latest wins are a real testament to this.”

The Advent calendars will be available to buy online and in Aldi stores.
