It may only be September but already the high street are unveiling their advent calendars with stores competing to produce the most unique Christmas count down.
And the latest to get shoppers excited comes from budget supermarket Aldi who today launched their wine advent calendar.
The £49.99 calendar, which hits stores on November 14, contains 24 miniature bottles of wine including red, white, rose and of course a little festive fizz.
Aldi has released its first wine calendar consisting of 24 bottles of wine, including red, white, rose and sparkling
The German supermarket has worked with brads such as JP Chenet and Calvet with the wines from various regions including France.
The 24 miniature bottles equate to around £2 each and according to the store are equal to six full size bottles.
Wine connoisseurs were quick to take to Twitter to express their excitement over the boozy festive count down.
Lynne Maxwell tweeted: ‘Aldi launching a wine advent calendar?! Amen to that, Great idea! #fizzfor24thobvs’.
However, the measure of wine in the box adds up to a total of 60 units, that’s 17.5 units a week – three units more than the NHS recommended weekly alcohol intake
Meanwhile Sister Darkness added: ‘I’m sorry but Aldi have produced the biggest game changer of 2017 … a wine advent calendar’.
However, while customers are eager to get their hands on the alcoholic advent calendar, there is concern that it could encourage excessive drinking.
