A boozy Christmas countdown is one of the most popular advent calendars, and we have to say that wine might just be our favourite.

Whether it's a Christmas-themed wine rack filled with mini bottles of wine, prosecco or champagne, or a festive box dedicated to just your fave (red, white or rosé all day, anyone?) these elegant wine advent calendars are a fabulous way to discover new wines or enjoy an array of your favourites.

It's never too early to start thinking about securing a wine advent calendar - last year, the format proved so popular that several brands sold out completely! So get scrolling for our pick of the best...

How we chose the best wine advent calendars

  • Variety: Whether you love white, red, rosé or prosecco (or a combination) - we've found something for everyone.
  • Popularity: There's a reason that most of the advent calendars included in this edit sold out last year - there are some incredible deals on quality wines that work out far lower than their RRP.
  • Sustainability: Many of the wine advent calendars we've included have reusable packaging that you can fill yourself for years to come.
