This holiday season, wholesale retailer Costco is bringing back its wine advent calendar.

Costco’s online blog, Costco Connection, confirmed the beloved calendar will be back for 2021. The advent calendar contains 24 half bottles of wine that are 375 milliliters each, or about 12 ounces (340.19g).

It’s unconfirmed what the calendar will retail for this year, but in 2020 it cost $US99.99 ($AU136), which comes to a little over $US4 ($AU5) per bottle.

The wines in the calendar represented an array of grape varieties and growing regions, from Merlot to Zinfandel and Bulgaria to France

The company behind the advent calendar, Flying Blue Imports also has a website where customers can learn more about what they’re drinking. Each day has a corresponding link that leads you to detailed information about the wine in the box.

A Strut King Chardonnay from Italy kicks things off as the day-one wine, with aromas of orchard fruit and melon.

The final wine, Brilliant Brut, is an Italian sparkling wine featuring notes of white flowers, white peaches, pineapple, and toasted nuts.

According to Costco Connection, the calendars will hit warehouses as early as this month.
