Celebrate Early With Good Pair Day’s Twelve Wines of Christmas Advent Calendar

'Tis the season.

The countdown for Christmas starts in October, right? With festive advent calendars — filled with booze — begin to hit the shelves, our Christmas spirit starts to tingle.

Good Pair Days — known for their impeccable wine delivery services — have dropped their Twelve Wines of Christmas Advent Calendar, which holds twelve of their highest-rated bottles, with a focus on Aussie wines to support our local growers.


But the bottles themselves, remain a surprise. In true Christmas spirit, the identities of the actual bottles that have made the cut, are a closely held secret until the day of unwrapping.

What we do know, is that you’ll be sure to get a full selection of grape types and styles from near and far, both indie and iconic, classic and new world.

In addition to an incredible selection, nearly half the bottles in each pack are exclusives, meaning you won’t find them anywhere else.

But wait — there’s more. You’ll also get special recipes, wine pairings, tasting notes, and a special stocking stuffer including a GPD picnic rug and travel cheese knife set.

For 2021, Good Pair Days is offering three different calendar prices to choose from, depending on whether you have been naughty or nice of course.

Choose between a ‘Classic’ ($295), ‘Fancy’ ($495) or ‘Extra Fancy’ ($795), each with a different selection of bottles to match the price range.

Good Pair Days will be ready to start shipping their 2021 Twelve Wines of Christmas Advent Calendars in early November, so we’d recommend getting onto pre-ordering now.

Imagine how organised you will be and how juicy your lead-up to Christmas will taste.
