What is a wine advent calendar?
The scent, the taste on the palate and the warm feeling it gives as it goes down the throat. There are so many reasons to love wine. For the French, it is inconceivable not to have at least one bottle of wine on the table at parties and aperitifs. In addition, it allows for convivial moments with family and friends during the Advent period. This is why many brands have decided to launch their wine Advent calendars.
The advent calendar is a box containing between 12 and 24 bottles that evoke the number of days leading up to Christmas Day. The wine advent calendar takes the original concept of the calendar and adapts it to include products from the best vineyards. The winegrowers have made this method their own so that they can give buyers a taste of their products and take them on a new adventure. If you are convinced by a particular bottle or bottles of wine, the references and description of the wine are provided with the calendar so that you can order later.
But first, you need to determine which wines you liked best. Selected from a wide range of quality wines, each bottle is a testament to the expertise and quality of treatment that the winemakers put into their products. The bottles are placed in cartons of varying sizes and are arranged in such a way as to prevent them from colliding. Moreover, the boxes are resistant and protect your drinks perfectly well.
Who is this calendar for?
The wine advent calendar is available on the market for the general public. So embark on a new experience with a well-stocked box. Whether you are a novice or an expert in the field, each box is designed to reach and satisfy everyone. Nevertheless, as a precaution, it is necessary to follow the instructions given by the producers. For example, wine, as well as alcohol in general, is not recommended for pregnant women. Also, as a reminder, alcohol abuse can have harmful and irreversible effects on health. This is why it is essential to drink wine in moderate quantities in order to enjoy it fully without putting yourself at risk.
What are the criteria for choosing a wine advent calendar?
There are now many different types of wine advent calendars. The competition is fierce and every brand, especially wine boxes, is working hard to create boxes that are both beautiful and practical. Before choosing a wine advent calendar, it is best to consider certain factors to avoid making the wrong choice and regretting it once you have paid the bill or opened your box. For example, you should consider the design, the price as well as the content of the calendar.
When you buy products for yourself or your loved ones, the packaging and design of the item are the first things that catch your eye. Even before you know exactly what the contents are, the packaging already helps you to make your choice. The shape, the colours, the theme, the material, the opening system, in short the general presentation of the calendar influences your decision. Moreover, if you want to display it in your living room, it must be at least presentable. It should make you want to admire it and open it every morning before Christmas.
The price is a decisive criterion, regardless of the product category in question. Everyone has their own budget and it is up to the customer to decide how much they are prepared to spend on the wine advent calendar they wish to purchase this year. Although this is a season to indulge and please, it is not a reason to break the bank either. A wide range of calendars are on display in supermarkets and specialist shops, with prices to suit every pocketbook.
To decide whether a wine advent calendar is right for you, you first need to know how many bottles are in the box. Some brands offer 24 bottles of wine, which means a new discovery every day. However, some calendars have been designed with 12 bottles inside, which means one bottle to open every other day. Also, the size of the bottles can vary depending on the brand. Some prefer to opt for smaller bottles, if the contents are of high quality and relatively expensive on the market. Once you know the contents of your advent calendar, you can compare it with the price and decide whether it is worth buying or not.
