If you like wine and you like Christmas, you’re going to love this. The 12 Nights of Wine advent calendar is officially back in Alberta and it's the only boozy countdown to Christmas that you need this year. The Edmonton wine advent calendar is available in-store right in the city, or you can order it online.

The 12 Night of Wine calendar, created by VINEBOX, will be available at Aligra Wine & Spirits in West Edmonton Mall and it is being sold for $129. It's apparently the world's first wine calendar, and you can have one of your very own this Christmas.

The box includes one glass of wine for each of the 12 days. According to the VINEBOX website, they’re “about the little guys, the stories behind the wine, the towns and the terroirs.”

They carefully curate wines to bring you the best possible sipping experience. “Life is too short to drink bad wine. We’re here to help.” 

The holidays are all about indulgence, so why not refine your pallet by sipping on high-quality wine? It's not a one-size-fits-all, either. You can pick your box depending on if you're naughty, nice, or a bit of both.

There are three advent calendar boxes to choose from. The “Naughty” version is filled with red wine selections, whereas the “Nice” calendar is filled with white. Or, you can opt for the “Naughty & Nice” advent calendar which features a mix of the two.

"It’s not drinking, it’s a wine tasting, and that makes it classy," says the Aligra Wine & Spirits website.

With the holidays creeping up quicker than ever, there are a whole bunch of creative advent calendars emerging. The Nude Beverages advent calendar puts a holiday twist on Nude mixed drinks, so it's clear that Christmas countdowns and boozy beverages go well together.

Why get a little piece of chocolate in your advent calendar when you could have a glass of delicious wine? Or, if you're feeling really classy, you can have both.

This is the perfect gift for the wine-lover in your life or a nice treat for yourself at the start of the holiday hustle. If you're a real wine-lover, you could even fill this unique stocking with three whole bottles' worth. What a time to be alive!
