      Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner?

      New District, a Vancouver-based wine start-up, has created an advent calendar containing 25 full-sized bottles of B.C.’s best vinos. Specially curated by a team of wine experts, each bottle is worth up to $100 and comes beautifully wrapped, numbered, and packaged in a white pine box.

      The adult-friendly calendar was created in an effort to connect wine drinkers with a wider variety of locally made wines—a large number of which come from Okanagan wineries, including Lock & Worth, Stag’s Hollow, Church & State Wines, and Le Vieux Pin.

      New District’s wine bottle advent calendar retails for $850, including shipping, and is available for purchase on the company’s website.

      Quantities are limited and orders made by November 26th will arrive in time for the first of December.

      New District is also offering smaller holiday six-packs of wine, which can be shipped in time for Christmas.
