A close up of the In Good Taste Advent Calendar for 2023.

'Tis the season for treats—and we're not just talking the spooky kind for kids. While Christmas may still be a ways away, Advent calendars are hitting shelves earlier than ever, and they're filled with grown-up goodies that will make this the merriest holiday season yet. Especially if we're talking the 2023 In Good Taste Wine Advent Calendar, which comes filled with 24 mini bottles of vino to sip and share. Not only is it one of the most sought-after boxes of the season, it's also available for $20 off if you pre-order it now with code CHEERS.

Given how quickly this box has sold out in years past, you're definitely going to want to get your hands on one (or a few) of 'em early. The 2023 edition of this fan-favorite Advent calendar features a variety of wines sourced from Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and California, making it the perfect gift for all the wine-lovers on your list (yourself included, of course). Hundreds of reviewers say it's the best way to dabble in whites, reds and rosés since they're all presented in pretty miniature bottles (about a fourth the size of a traditional bottle), so you can taste your way through new and old favorites without too much of a commitment.

No wonder TikTokers rave about how giftable it is, since you can buy your bestie an entire calendar for themselves or wrap up a few mini bottles to give to them from yours.

In other words, if you're not a fan of red wines, you can easily re-gift a bottle or two for someone else to enjoy (and, according to buyers, they will *definitely* enjoy the high-quality and planet-friendly wines). Some reviewers have also recycled the glass bottles to store spices and more because they're "too adorable" to throw away.

"The minute I received this, I realized it was so much more," writes one reviewer. "The packaging alone is amazing, getting me excited for the holiday season. Also, I love that it has [food pairings] for all the wines, giving me new ideas for dinner too." Yep, in addition to a new wine surprise for each day, the calendar comes complete with a booklet which introduces you to all the wines and advises on the best food pairings to enjoy with them, meaning you (or your giftee) can have the most unforgettable tasting experience.

In Good Taste

Of course, we'll be toasting to this masterpiece throughout the holiday season because it's truly the gift that keeps on giving. Ready to raise your glass? Don't forget to use code CHEERS at checkout to save on your pre-order boxes, which will start shipping the first week in November. Let's just say there's no better (or boozier) excuse to start your holiday shopping early.
