The holiday season may still be a couple of months away, but that doesn't mean you can't start preparing now by ordering your advent calendar for the season ahead of time. Whether you're a wine newbie or somewhat of a connoisseur, this wine-filled advent calendar is a great way to sip on some of your favorites and try new varietals. In Good Taste, a brand that offers curated wine samplers, just put out its yearly advent calendar, and it's probably one of the more fun ways you can countdown to the holidays. 

The Wine Advent Calendar from In Good Taste features a sampler of 24 wines in 187-milliliter bottles (that equals out to just over one glass per bottle). The set includes a wide range of wines like pinot noir, riesling, and rosé from destinations like Mendocino Valley, CA, Burgundy, France, and Sicily, Italy. This year's advent calendar features wines from three of In Good Taste's current collections: California Wine Mixer, Wild Child, and the Cascade Collection. You can see the full list of this year's wines with tasting notes on the brand's website.  

And if this advent calendar sounds like a must-have holiday countdown, you'll want to order soon before it starts shipping on Nov. 1.
