Advent Calendar Brilliance!

Wine and cheese!

Wine Advent Calendar from Lidl

This year we were lucky enough to snag one of these wine advent calendars from Lidl. They fly off the shelf just as soon as then become available. At around $60.00 for the box, we hoped for the best. So far, so good.

There are 24 mini wine bottles behind each snowflake!
Cheese Advent Calendar from Lidl

Also a Lidl best seller is the clever Ilchester cheese advent calendar and what better to go with wine? The cheese advent calendar (in the refrigerator section of course) costs around $14.00.

December 1st:

Tonight’s pairing was a mini bottle of Chardonnay (equal to one large glass or two small ones for sharing) and a lovely English sharp cheddar. I would really like to know more about this wine and the cheese because both were terrific and fabulous together! The wine was just as the mini label stated, buttery, pear, Meyer lemon and vanilla.

Cheers to twenty-three more days of wonderful surprises to come!

Happy Advent all!
