No, it’s not even Halloween yet, but retailers are gearing up for the holidays. But even the most Grinch-like of people will be excited that Costco’s wine advent calendars are back.
The big-box retailer known for its bulk items is also not so shabby when it comes to seasonal offerings. Costco’s Halloween decor is on par with craft stores like Michael’s, and you can go ahead and start planning your Christmas decor as well—it’s already up on the site. But if you’re less into decorating and more into celebrating, the wine advent calendar is where you’ll want to invest your cash.
The returning item has been spotted by multiple Instagram users including Costco enthusiasts like Costco Millennial (who has a photo of the entire wine lineup) and Costco Wine Blog. The set of 24 half-bottle wines from around the world retails for $99, and according to Costco Wine Blog there are actually two different collections this year! The advent calendars aren’t on the Costco site yet, but you can snag them in stores.
Can’t wait to get a closer look at the offerings? You’re in luck: The company that makes the wine calendar, Flying Blue, has put together a pretty nifty little website that’s a virtual version of the calendar intended to be used alongside the actual box of wine. Each day of the calendar has its own entry with a little video about the particular wine, tasting notes, and more.
If you’ve been looking for the perfect advent calendar, Costco (as usual) may have it.
