Wine or champagne advent calendar

I'm looking for a wine advent calendar in Basel. I found a champagne advent calendar (better!) but they will only ship within UK. I'd heard Aldi has one, but when I inquired in person, they thought I was crazy.


Has anyone seen a weinadventskalender (or something similar) here in Basel or nearby in Germany or France?

I've seen beer ones (I think also in Aldi) but never wine.

Amazon might be the best option.

Some example on here.

Re: Wine or champagne advent calendar

Thanks for the suggestions. I didn't want to order from amazon to avoid dealing with customs fees (either in CH or if sent to DE).

I ordered the one on geschenkenidee.

I definitely saw the beer one in Aldi Zurich last year, but it was too heavy to carry. Perhaps you could make your own? I think that would be more fun and personal. Bau+Hobby have a range of suitable advent calendars that you can fill yourself, including a large wooden one shaped like a house.

Yeah, I asked at Aldi but they don't get them here. I tried looking online to see if DE or FR Aldi had them but I'm not sure they're on their website.

Coop has also a advent calendar with 24 different Beers. If you wait until January, you can drink all the tasty beers for 50% less.

Nobody drinks in January, we all take the holier than thou attitude which lasts between a few hours and 31 days (well it did one a long time ago.....)
