Counting Down the Holidays with Wine

With another successful (?) Thanksgiving in the books, it's time to start looking forward to Christmas. Before you break out your decorative advent calendar, though, consider this: Grocery store Aldi is selling a wine advent calendar to help you count down the days. Yep, that's a mini bottle of wine a day, for 24 days in December. The wines cover the world, ranging from South African Chenin Blanc to Argentinian Malbec.

Aldi is anticipating the wine advent calendar to be so popular that they're limiting purchases to one per customer, with no guarantees of availability. With the shopping season mayhem that's poised to descend upon us next month, I don't doubt that these calendars will sell out quickly. After all, what better way to survive all that holiday cheer than with a daily dosing of vino?
