The popular In Good Taste Wine Advent Calendar is back this year, and we were so excited to get a preview of what’s included for 2022!

Each day you are presented with a new 187ml mini bottle of wine to taste with a friend, or enjoy all by yourself.

Included with the box is a tasting booklet that tells you more about each wine, notes to look for, and suggested food and wine pairings. Wines come all over the world, including reds, whites, and rosés. Some of our favorites were a zesty grapefruit forward rosé, a smooth fruity pilotage, and a bold and juicy syrah.

“I absolutely loved the packaging for this calendar! The box is colorful and festive, and the wine bottles are adorable, each with a corked lid and unique label. We are looking forward to repurposing them for a fun DIY project or decorative home feature!” —Nicole M.
