Aldi Cheese Advent Calendar 2021

Need a great pairing for your beer and wine Advent calendars? Why not pick up Aldi’s Cheese Calendar for 2021? If you haven’t tried Aldi’s cheese selections you have been missing out, they are always rotating gourmet and imported cheeses in their deli section. Last year there was confirmation that the wine calendar was matched to the cheese calendar so each day your wine and cheese would pair well. For 2021 I have not heard if the wine and cheese calendars are meant to be paired together but their packaging does look pretty similar. I think it’s best to just go for it with either the wine or beer calendars, worst-case scenario you still have wine/beer and cheese which is gonna be pretty good.

Disappointing wine selection

February 1, 2022

So bummed with the wine calendar for 2021. 2020 was a pretty Christmas tree box with small bottles of wine that you can actually buy in store in a regular size. This year was a boring box and all of the wines were made up wines like “reindeer red” that you can’t buy in a full sized bottle even if you did like them. Such a letdown.


I only got to try a couple of the wines, but they were good

January 30, 2022

My favorite out of the 2021 Aldi wine Advent calendar was Shimmering Lights Winter Wonderland Reindeer Red. It was delicious. I am trying to find where I can but a couple bottles of this wine


Cheap no name wine

January 14, 2022

I bought the Aldi wine calendar several years ago and it was a treat. This year, 2021, the bottles are plastic and the wines are terrible. I ended up making sangria with most of them.


Taste fail

December 26, 2021

Cabernet sauvignon tasted like merlot. These wines taste like cheap pours. Will not buy again


Halfway through, not as good as last year

December 13, 2021

Fun experience but I think the calendar was better last year.
